The Style Guide: White Shirt Tales
1. New Silhouettes and Details
The iconic staple has more than one story to tell. It's a cool, crisp chameleon, ready to be worn in multiple ways, from black tie to low-key.
2. Mix It Up!
Want to transform your top? The team at Dresshirt has designed collars that can be swapped out to inject a fun color pattern.
3. Pair With A Sheer Skirt
Choose a longer style that peeks through the skirt's fabric—it's flirty without being too revealing. Hello, date night!
4. Layer Under A Bustier
A creative way to bring the boudoir to happy hour—just keep it unbuttoned up top. Sexy and unexpected.
5. Deconstruct A Tuxedo
Try one with black piping. Match it with an undone tie for extra tomboy chic.
6. Slip Under A Dress Or Showcase An Interesting Detail
Tuck a sculptural necklace underneath the collar to turn this schoolgirl look on its head, while donning it with a mid calf hem seems conservative, until you turn around. Then—surprise! The tie-back flashes some skin.
7. Take It Black-Tie
Channel old-school socialites by wearing it with a ball-gown skirt. Elegant and effortless.
8. Cuff The Sleeves
Rolled-up sleeves keep a pretty skirt-shirt combo from looking too prim.
9. Unbutton The Bottom
Copy the catwalk and keep the lower half open to show off more of your cool high-waist shorts.
10. Team With A Suit
A fan of '70s swagger? Go all white with strong shoulders and slouchy trousers for the 2014 version.
11. Tuck In A Skirt
Tie on a silky one as an easy update to your favorite top.
