How do you style a white shirt?

So when you’re styling shirts it really does all depend on what kind of look you are going for? For example business wear, eveningwear or daywear. For this look, I chose to incorporate the classic white shirt into an everyday look suitable for activities such as shopping, lunch with friends or even an afternoon trip to the cinema.

For this look, I decided to go with this stunning cotton shirt. I really do love this shirt. It has a beautiful button detailing on both sides of the shirt and the fit is simply stunning.

I wanted to keep this look simple yet elegant so I decided to pair this shirt with my high-waisted black jeans. Every girl needs to have a pair (if not 5) of high-waisted jeans, suitable for any occasion. You can dress them up with heels like I did or down with a pair of chunky platform shoes.

As the weather is still not fabulous in the UK I opted to go for my grey coat from Celine. Perfect for creating stylish yet practical garments, Celine is one of my favourite brands to go to for quality sophisticated pieces.

I could not resist a red hat to match the shoes. Hats, recently, have become an integral part of my style and I can’t stop wearing them. For those who are unsure, – it’s easy to wear a hat. Just choose the shape you love and go for it.

To complete my look I opted for the playful bag from Paula Cademartori. I love the design of the bag as well as the practicality. The bag has a handy strap that can become short or long depending on the way you hold it. Moreover, the bag has a perfect size for keeping all my essentials. The design is simply beautiful, can we just admire a silk scarf add-on?

Why did I style the shirt this way?

I wanted to create a look that could be dressed up and dressed down something I could go to lunch in in the day but then wear to an evening drinks party. I love to be comfortable when I’m dressing and this look really did do all that.

How else could I style this shirt?

There are many options available for styling a shirt such as this. I find white will go with every colour and so there are endless opportunities for many different looks. You could opt to pair this shirt with a pair of wide-leg trousers and heels or your choice for more of a dressed down evening look. Pair with silver/gold jewellery and you will be hot to trot without putting a lot of time or effort in.

    This is such a chic look! I totally love high waisted jeans because they hide everything you want to hide. And the red accessories are on point.
