I’ll Have What She’s Having: A classic French Chic white shirt that’s just a touch special
I’d like to think of this as a palette cleanse from all the too-too of Fashion Week. Something so simple, so easy, that you may even have in your closet.
But, don’t think that this kind of off-handed style is NOT strategic.
The effortlessness of this very laid back classic style is really not that effortless.
It involves a classic white shirt, but it is the RIGHT white shirt that matters.
Its hem may be asymmetrical to cover your tush yet balance over the skinniest of black pants & very feminine heels.
Or, maybe its sleeves are rolled just up to show a little forearm so your wide leg pants don’t overwhelm.
It may be poplin, oxford, gauzy cotton, or featherweight silk but there’s a style in what appears borrowed from the boys yet honestly cut for you.
I have a few classic white shirts from Hache, Uniqlo, The Row, James Perse… a very high/low mix of brands, each to suit a different purpose, but all with a certain amount of nonchalance.
Here are a few better than classic white shirts that we pulled for you:
