I’m always in the market for high quality and great tailored basics, like blazer, white shirt, trench coat, black skinny jeans, leather work bag… They are the foundation of my wardrobe and I’m willing to pay for the best quality I can afford.
So I was so excited when I scored this EQUIPMENT Signature Blouse at half the price via Moda Operandi. I have shopped at this site since last year. They have great deals on the latest runway looks and awesome custom service.
This shirt has everything I wanted: 100% silk, cute front pockets, casual vibe and perfect size. I cannot wait to pair it with the red Rag & Bone high waist skinny jeans that I pre-ordered several months ago. Both of them will arrive in July. I will definitely share them with you.
It’s Audrey Hepburn who made me fell in love with white shirts. Who doesn’t like the photo below? Of course <Mad Men> helps a lot too (you know what I mean). Menswear can always give women a sexy twist, let alone the crisp fresh color.
My favorite way to pair white shirt is with leather pants. There is an attractive contrast between the delicate, innocent white silk shirt and the tough, sexy leather pants. Adding a blazer over the shirt can cover our “problem area” and also give the whole look more colors and textures.
I used to avoid purchasing leather skirt. But these ladies changed my mind: Angelina Jolie and Kate Bosworth gave the leather dress an elegant vibe, while Kristin Cavallari gave it a sweet ‘girly’ feel.
Loose white shirt and denim or colored shorts combo is my summer uniform. Check how these ladies wore this combo for a casual day or a night out.
For more feminine look, change the shorts to different types of skirts: from maxi to tweed. I love Olivia Palermo’s look: by adding a pair of metallic heels and a nice bag, she made the maxi dress and casual shirt combo evening appropriate.
White shirt and jeans combo may be boring sometime. But try different types of jeans: high waist, scratched, or colored:

White shirt is so versatile, stylish and timeless. Many talented bloggers shared their ways to pair white shirts: “Popsugartv” has a great video “10 Ways to Wear a White Button-Down“. Wendy from “Wendyslookbook” did a beautiful pairing episode featured white blouse, which you can check here.
I hope all of these help. You may already have a white shirt in your closet right? How do you style it?
