S/S 14 Trend: The White Shirt

I love a good old white button down, they are a wardrobe basic that every girl should own.  A white shirt might not seem like much but it is the style pick of the season with the likes of Keira Knightly to Alexa Chung are all rocking out this trend.

I’m not talking about the kind of white shirt you once wore to school, but amazing cool new styles that have interesting cuts and stylish detailing. The white shirt this season has truly been reinvented, the options of styles is endless. White shirts have appeared in all style formations from sleeves to no sleeves, collars and no collars to cool buttons and transparent fabrics with everything in-between.

In celebration of this hero piece, we have listed the top three ways to rock the white shirt trend...


Wearing a white shirt with denim shorts or jeans is a sophisticated way to dress on your day off. Introduce a statement necklace or brightly coloured accessories for an on trend stylish summer look.

Shorts & Skirts

Shorts and skirts both go well with a white shirt. The white shirt will look its best if you team it with brightly coloured garment pieces to contrast with whiteness of the white shirt. White shirts also provide the good opportunity to wear prints where the white of shirt will balance out any print perfectly. Introduce printed skirts or trousers, printed skirts suits look awesome teamed with a white shirt.


If you want to add a luxe and texturized feel to your style, compliment the white shirt with fabrics like leather and velvet for a glamorous chic style aesthetic.  With the white shirt you can go all out because whatever you team with it you are pretty much safe because the shirt is essentially a blank canvas.
