A white shirt is possibly one of the most versatile items you will have in your wardrobe all year round. Its effortless ability to pull together a look or offer a sartorial solution to any styling woe is reason enough why everyone should have at least one in the vaults. In the SS17 collections, the white shirt is a hero piece, continuing to trump the catwalks and street style corners of fashion month, providing us with a myriad of new styles and ways in which your classic white shirt can be given a slight upgrade. For more of an insight into the leading ways to trump this style saviour this season, keep scrolling to find the perfect look for you.
If you are feeling daring and want to be ahead of the pack this season then team your trusted white shirt with a new formed corset or corset belt. Sometimes shape can be lost when donning an oversized shirt so cinch in your waist to create more of an hourglass silhouette. Pair with wide leg trousers and 90’s kitten heels to give your legs extra elongation.
For those who like to play it safe or simply want an elevated everyday workwear update, team a crisp white shirt with a dark coloured culotte to ooze effortless sophistication. Add pops of colour in the form of accessories or outerwear if you are feeling like playing away from the classic monochrome colour scheme.
Wearing a head-to-toe printed or coloured look can prove to be daunting; break up blocks of colour by pairing with a classic white button up and any patterned silhouette to lessen the kaleidoscopic impact.
Layer this hero piece under or over any slip or slinky dress to provide protection to trembling shoulders on chillier nights. Upgrade your classic style with a reformed bell sleeve silhouette for an added nod to the SS17 winning trends.
