I feel the need to have every kind of white shirt for every outfit. A longer white shirt, a shorter white shirt, an oversized version, something more fitted for layering, a linen one for summer, a cotton one for spring – the list goes on and on. Take a look at our White Shirt Shop and grab what you’ve been missing.
Keep It Classic
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Sometimes you just need a crisp new version of your old favorites – ones that don’t have the shadow of a coffee spill or sweat stains. Frank & Eileen’s shirts, whether it’s a classic cotton or crinkle version, is a wardrobe basic. I love Anine Bing’s Mika Shirt, which is a little less fitted and a little more elevated. And in case you’re thinking ahead to summer, grab a Lauren Ralph Lauren linen button down!
Borrowed From The Boys
For those who tend to favor oversized, slouchy fits – there are plenty of women’s shirts these days that replicate the oversized feel with slightly better tailoring than an actual men’s shirt. HommeGirls’s signature shirt in white comes with extra length but still shows off your shape. This J.Crew classic-fit Thomas-Mason piece is a similar style at a lower price point. Frankie Shop’s Lui cotton shirt is a little on the boxier side, with a longer hem in the back.
A Little Something Extra
Sometimes, your trusty plain white shirt just won’t do. You need something with a little extra drama. How about a romantic ruffle along the collar from Alex Mill? Wear them with slouchy chinos or cigarette pants, depending on your vibe. When you don’t have to worry about coats, a puff sleeve moment is always fun. I especially love the pleating on these AQUA sleeves. This Ralph Lauren blouson sleeve shirt with a small collar is elegant and femme. For a utilitarian spin, the Marnee from Club Monaco has some military-inspired pocket and buttons detail that will satisfy you.
