Go back to basics with these 12 white shirts we’re loving right now

Classic white shirts are a necessity for any woman’s working wardrobe. It’s a certified staple that allows you to create a multitude of new outfit combinations. In a closet chock-full of seasonal colours, the sober sophistication of a pearly white shirt makes grown-up glamour look simply, effortless.

For SS19, designers have revitalised the formal white shirt and given it a contemporary refresh. Gucci gave us eccentric ruffles. Area introduced fringe details. Gabriella Hearst delivered high necklines and corset-inspired waistlines, and Ermanno Scervino brought sheer bows and peplum finishes.

For me, the perfect white shirt has a slightly higher neck-line, is paired with a bow (inspired by Chloé), has plenty of ruffles and is soft to touch. It’s worth paying extra for a good quality brand; a white shirt is timeless and will provide you with years of comfort and style. With so many different shapes, textures and endless styling possibilities, it’s a piece that will suit anyone.

Give your white shirt an updated, fashion-forward look by pairing yours with wide-leg pants, stacked bracelets and light duster coat. Here are twelve white shirts we’re loving right now.
