From boardroom to black-tie event, work to weekend, a white fitted shirt is an indispensable part of any well-rounded wardrobe. One of the most versatile pieces you can own, this timeless staple will never let you down. But what do you team it with? To help, we’ve put together this handy guide listing four ways to wear a white shirt.
Does your office have a business-casual dress code? To impress the boss, wear a white formal shirt underneath a V-neck jumper and pair these with some slim-fitting chinos and Derby shoes. If things turn chilly, add in another layer with a timeless herringbone jacket.
Whether you’re dressing for an important meeting or attending a wedding, teaming your staple with a suit and tie will ensure you always make a stylish impression. When picking out the style of shirt, we would suggest opting for a design with a double cuff and – more importantly – a collar that suits your face shape. For those who aren’t sure which this is, take a look at our blog post here.
When it comes to dressing for the weekend, the key is to look smart without trying too hard. To find this middle ground, we recommend investing in a white shirt of the button-down variety. Style this with a wool cardigan and classic chinos and you’re good to go. Oh, and don’t forget some leather Chelsea boots to finish things off.
For formal events such as black tie, there are various options you can choose from. Keep it simple with a cutaway collar or opt for something more traditional with a pleated front. Once your shirt has been chosen, equip yourself with a black dinner suit, and of course, a silk bow tie.
