6 Cool Tips To Style A Crisp White Shirt

When it comes to wardrobe essentials, a classic white button-down should be at the top of every woman’s list. You can dress down or dress up your white shirt with ease. Trends come and go, but the versatility and elegance of the white shirt is perpetual.

Trust me, there are myriad ways on how to make this beautiful top look awesome on you.

1. Wear It With Denim

The most basic way to wear a white shirt is with denim. Front tuck your white shirt into jeans and pair it with killer heels. Finish off with bandana or a bold statement necklace. Try the season’s hottest flared jeans or a lighter bleached look for summer months.You can also wear it with a denim skirt. Pair it with sneakers for a fun, casual look.

2. Layer It

Wear your white shirt underneath a sweater or a sleeveless vest. Pull the hem out and and keep your collar out for a casual daytime look. You can also wear it under a crop top.

Wear it underneath a strappy dress or jumpsuit to smarten it up. Liven up your outfit with bold colours and patterns. Be as daring as you like- nothing clashes with a white shirt.To tone down a naval-grazing neckline, slip a sexy black dress over a classic oxford shirt.

3. Work Outfit

Wear your white shirt to office. Go all white with a silk pleated midi skirt and a white button-down pairing. Pair with a neutral coloured heels for a sophisticated look. With a classic black suit, fold your shirting cuffs over your blazer. Add a pair of colorful heels to brighten up your otherwise black ensemble.

Tuck a crisp white button-down into an ultra-high waist skirt and finish it off with a belt. Slip into a pair of pointed-toe heels to stay chic and comfortable all day long.

4. Add A Corset

Wear a corset over you white shirt to take it to a whole new level. Wear it over a longer length shirt as a t-shirt dress or add on a short mini skirt and complete the look with thigh high boots. Try with jeans if you are not comfortable with the super mini look.

You can wear a corset of a solid color, a steel- boned corset or something in print. The corset will make your torso look cinched in and your waist thinner.

5. Belt It

Wear you white shirt over a skirt and add a belt on your natural waist to define your figure. Sometimes a tucked in shirt can be messy with a fabric skirt. Hide the lumps with a wide,obi belt.

Turn your shirt into a dress and  pair it with a thin brown braided belt.

6. All Leather Everything

Wear your white shirt with a leather skirt and tall leather boots. You can try adding a belt or tying a knot at your waist for a more daytime look. A super simple and elegant look is a crisp white shirt with your leather pants and a pair of heels.

Let out your inner fashionista by matching contrasting colours, such as black and white. Keep it simple and casual by combining a black cropped leather jacket over an oversized white shirt.

Winter Wonderland…

The flu bug/common cold epidemic has run its course finally in my part of town. Thousands of infectious folks just coughing and hacking relentlessly…. over for now.

I’ve grown even grumpier towards photographer/model meet ups.

With the way that Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat have fallen off a “career launching” platforms I wonder why any model even bothers on there anymore….

Valentines Day is rapidly approaching. More money in my pocket of course because i’m single as fuck….

I haven’t spotted any definite fashion trends on women this winter. Ya’ll all over the place with the outfit games this season…..

I’ll keep this short. Look out for some music vids, links to hard, fast and ignorant uptempo dance music on YouTube and iTunes, and more models….

Shoots

It’s getting cold as hell. Well, as cold as someplace beneath hell maybe….

I have an upcoming shoot with a few model friends where I also intend on taking some promo shots of myself. Fun times. Stay tuned.

Why I Hate Photographer Meetups…

2UPD0370.jpg

Every time I see a majority of old white men in one place I get uneasy….

It’s a power thing. It’s a “my great-grandparents were lynched” thing. It’s a money thing, meaning I’m broke. It’s a racism thing, they don’t want me there and it’s obvious.

So when I walked into a local photographer/model meet at greet at a semi-popular warehouse last Saturday, I was immediately put off by the number of silver haired white men with big cameras I saw.

The problem with photographer/model meet ups is you get maybe a 40:1 ratio of photographers to models. You get huge “mines are bigger than yours” lighting setups popping off constantly. Randomly. You get a bunch of leery men rushing over to photograph an amateur model who just switched to her racy mini-dress, fishnet stockings, and heels number….

You get paparazzi practice basically. This is how TMZ should train their photogs. Send them to local photographer/models meets and greets.

How is it a meet and greet when the models are wary and hostile and the photographers look at me, a black man, as if I’m there to steal their gear or something? If I want to get rejected by a model I’ll go on Model Mayhem thank you very much. No need to get dissed in person after I paid an entrance fee. If I want to know where I stand with old white men I’ll check our President’s Twitter feed….

I will never understand why these photographers clamor to get the exact same shot 32 other guys are getting….

My homie said when he goes to these events he doesn’t even bring his camera. I see why. Next time (as if I’ll ever go to another one again and waste $25 bucks)…. next time I’ll bring a blunt and a beer and maybe my business cards.

The Streets Lately

I haven’t been “gunning” much street photography as of late….

 

Reason being: I love shooting models AND, to be honest, I don’t vibe with the respected professionals out there who call themselves street photographers.

Being a geek is fine. I’m not a geek however. I’m from the ghetto. I ride a black Harley-Davidson. I have a criminal record. I’ve shot guns at people in the streets and have sold my fair share of narcotics.

 

I know I’ve said before that being a street guy makes me a better street photographer. This is probably true. I’m a good street photographer. Turns out I’m a better glamour/fashion photographer though….

I also LOVE shooting females. Love it. There is little more I’d rather do on a Sunday besides shooting with a pretty lady and then editing the photos later on my iMac.

Will I shoot more street shots? Of course I will sooner or later. I AM the streets. Right now though I’m doing other shit and having fun doing it. It’s not like anybody was paying much attention to my street stuff anyhow. I’m invisible. We all are, most of us at least. The internet is oversaturated with street photos. There can never be enough photos of pretty women though…Ever.

Fall Random Thinkings…

Having a model girlfriend would be nice…

_MX40141.jpg

I know…we all want a model girlfriend. Still, I’m a photographer and having a live-in model would make things a lot easier for me moving forward. I’m not being selfish here am I?

I could rehearse lighting setups with her. I could shoot her wearing different colors and in different locations. It would be fun. Experimentation is my mindset here. None of that gutter stuff YOU’RE thinking about…. witcho’ nasty self…

 

She needs to be close to my age though…

My new lighting setup is working great. No complaints here. It took a few months to work all the kinks out and buy my strobes but now I’m all set to continue my street portrait career and kill shit…

I miss bus trips to amusement parks. My favorite part of the trip used to be sitting beside a girl I liked and hoping our arms or legs touched…

Life isn’t fair but I suppose we all have our micro-struggles to deal with huh?
