The White Shirt- the wardrobe classic!

The white shirt is a must have for this season,  especially when dressing for work.  There is one at every price and one shirt option for every day of the working week . The white shirt makes the perfect investment buy, because firstly it won’t go out of fashion, secondly you always can dress them up or down and last but not least it gives you the perfect platform to accessorise to the occasion and to your mood. The white shirt comes this season in a huge variety e.g.  in silk, with giant bow at the neck, in gleaming white, with or with out ruffles, in oversized sleeves or in classic style, crisp or with puff shoulders, cropped sleeves or in cotton. As always when the choices seem endless the body shape style will narrow your options.

  • Neckties and high collars

These are best for women with a normal to a along neck and great as well for women who tend to be small to normal busted.

  • Long puffed sleeves

These are best for women who have a slender upper half and can take this additional volume to their frame, waist and bust. Not so good for the pear shapes but super for the inverted triangle. Also, it gives roundness to rectangles and volume to lean columns.

  • Short puffed sleeves

Only women with small to normal arms should be wearing this option otherwise bigger arms are only looking bigger. Also, women with a big bust should avoid this option completely, because it adds unnecessary additional volume to the bust area. Women with an inverted triangle shape should also pass on this option, because it will make their shoulders and frame even broader. But great news for pear shaped women.

  • Ruffles around bust or bib style shirts

These are best for women who are small busted and have more of a slender top. Ruffles add volume and roundness to your chest and upper part and therefore should be avoided by those who are fuller on top.

  • Crisp shirts versa softer material

Crisp material is stiff and adds volume to the top, because it doesn’t follow the body line and shape. Therefore it should be only worn by women who are slender on top, have small to normal bust line or need to balance a bigger bottom to their upper part like the pear. It is a bad choice for apples and full hour glass women.

Have a nice day,
