The classic white shirt is a must have for any girls wardrobe

Perfect with denim and slacks on the weekend, great for the office and skinny jeans buttoned down on a night out… in 2016 however we are seeing the classic white shirt re-worked into something much more funky.

The Spring ’16 runways gave way to clever riffs on the white button-down, begging the question: why go back to the basics? Why, indeed, when the modern updates are a refreshing twist on the staple we love so well and, better still, just as versatile. This season, it’s about subtle updates, like a wrapped waist, cropped, backless, slashed cutout, or an asymmetrical hemline to liven up the classic shirt we once borrowed from the boys. See below some of my top pics
