    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.

    I just love the simplicity of her look. The rolled sleeves, crimson lips, undone hair, and THOSE pants! So effortlessly chic.

    You can dress IT up, wear it to tone down something very bold, make it girly yet chic, or wear it with tuxedo flourish to a modern pantsuit.

    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.

    There is a very calculated effort involved in looking so polished, yet just a wee bit undone , as demonstrated by Richard’s snaps of  the lovely ladies at Paris Fashion Week

    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:
