A basic white shirt! Everyone has at least one and most of the time more than one! The Spring 2017 fashion shows were definitely a change for the white shirt fashion! It was apparent that designers were determined to turn the simple white shirt into something not quite so basic!
One of the great things about fashion is that designers and real life women have the ability to see fresh beauty in the average everyday things around us. The proportions and lines of the basic white shirt have taken on a life of their own!! There is an energy and style to it like never before.
Bubble sleeves, mismatched panels, bows and ruffles are just a few of the details that designers have used to bring the white shirt to center stage.
Here are some ideas of how to style your white shirts this spring and summer! Not sure how comfortable you will feel about trying it, but wearing your white shirt half untucked is one of the popular trends this spring!! However if you feel more comfortable with a totally tucked in look, that is still stylish as well. FYI- Michelle is often seen with her shirt half untucked while Susie is more of a total tuck or total untuck kind of girl!! If you love the untucked look especially with a longer shirt, try belting it! Some of these awesome shirts come with their own belt, but do not be afraid to use some belts that you already have in your accessory wardrobe!
One of our favorite trends with the classic white shirt is the feminine reconstruction of the shirt! Showing an unexpected glimpse of skin gives attention to our feminine form.
The shoulder is the chosen area for attention this spring with the cold shoulder, off the shoulder, and cap sleeves being the most popular. These styles look best when done in a stark white cotton but can also be effective in a subtle stripe.
Make sure that one of your investment pieces for this spring and summer is a beautiful white shirt!! We promise you will not regret it!
That classic white shirt that has always been a wardrobe staple is no longer content to have a supporting role. This is the year where it takes center stage and becomes the star of the show!!
We can’t wait to see how you style your white shirts this spring!
Keep styling, ladies, and wear those white shirts!
