A crisp white shirt is one garment you will find in almost every woman’s wardrobe. The global runway too has seen leading designers such as Prabal Gurung, Giorgio Armani and Jil Sander to showcase white shirts as part of their Spring Summer 2012 collection.
But instead of keeping it simple, fashionistas have given the classic version a funky twist.
“The classic white shirt has come a long way. Make it more fun by wearing a bright thin waist belt or try a sheer shirt with ruffles. Shirts with embroidery on the collars and sleeves are also popular,” says designer Khushali Kumar. “You can also pair them with hot pants, coloured jeans, floral pants or ice cream-hued skirts.”
Here’s how to wear the white shirt right
A classic white shirt can be worn formally with formal black pants. You could also team the shirt with beige, cream or grey skirts.
In hot weather, pair your white shirt with hot pants. Don’t restrict yourself to denim. Try out shorts in floral, neon and graphic prints as well.
For a fun and casual look, wear the white shirt over pencil pants, palazzo pants and high-waisted skirts in yellows, reds, oranges, blues and greens. Wear a statement neckpiece to complete the look.
Colour blocking with wide belts in contrasting shades or solid coloured pumps and stilettos works very well.
Accessorise your white shirts with bold neon shoes, beaded neckpieces, quirky belts, bright scarves and stylish brooches.
