10 Ways to Wear a White Dress Shirt (And Where to Wear it)

thewhitedressshirt_graphicI have been trying to think of any fashion item that you can wear in more ways, and to more places then the classic white dress shirt. There are some valid contenders: simple ballet flats, black skinny jeans, a cashmere turtle neck, a string of pearls, or maybe a white t-shirt. Yet, arguably they can’t put up the numbers that the white dress shirt can. I narrowed it down to 10 ways to wear a white dress shirt and where to wear it.

When picking out a classic white dress shirt, I love to heade over to J.Crew. They have great options, that are classic and high quality. I chose a boyfriend cut, with long sleeves, for the maximum versatility. You can keep the sleeves down to keep it dressy, or roll them up for a more casual look. The boyfriend cut is a little wider around the waist than a stretch fit and also allows for dressing down and also synching the waist to dress it up.

Take body shape into account when picking your cut. Boyfriend cuts are the most flattering on apple, pencil and inverted triangle shaped bodies. Pear and Hourglass generally look better when their waist is highlighted, so look for one that has a slimmer feel, or be conscience with how you style it.
