How to style a basic white shirt

Is there anything more classic than a white shirt? I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve only recently added one to my wardrobe… and I’m loving it! It took me a week or so but now I feel super confident when it comes to different ways to style it and I’ve realised how truly versatile this item of clothing is. I like to think that I can’t be the only one who didn’t quite know how to style a basic white shirt and so I hope this blog post is helpful to you.

If you’re keen to see the 5 ways I style my white shirt, give this reel over here a watch. I decided to just keep the rest of my outfit simple so that the real star of the show is the shirt, but you can add a denim jacket or trench if it’s chilly, dress it up with heels or down with sneakers, add a skirt instead of pants or even shorts! Your options really are endless.

The beauty of a white shirt is that not only is it timeless (can you think of a time when having one wasn’t a wardrobe staple, I definitely can’t) but it can be worn through all four seasons. Of course it will get majority of it’s wear in the more chilly months but it’s so great to wear in the warmer months too! I know I’ll definitely be using it as a pool or beach cover up, and it looks so cute over a crop top and denim shorts, especially when taking your outfit from day time into the evening.

I also wanted to share a few different white shirt options with you in case you also wanted to invest in one… I highly recommend that you do!
