The Classic White Shirt


The Classic White Shirt for Women

The classic white shirt is a staple that should be in every wardrobe! It’s ageless and can be formal or casual.

When we think formal, we often think of Sharon Stone wearing a white shirt from the Gap for the Oscars.

Way before then, Bianca Jagger was sporting a white shirt with a tulle skirt.

A white shirt is the perfect pairing for a formal black skirt. It’s simple, yet elegant.

When I think of a white shirt with slim black pants, I think of Audrey Hepburn. Her style was classic and fits right in with today’s fashion world.

The Classic White Shirt for Men

White shirts are a must for men.

Yes, Cary Grant would look good in any color but don’t you think white is the best? I love a crisp, white shirt on a man.

A white shirt isn’t just for suits and ties. It looks great with a sport jacket, sans tie!
