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.
