How To Wear The Classic White Shirt

Trends come and go, but the versatility of the classic white button-down is endless.

A stylish white shirt is great, as it works as a blank slate for you to dress down, or dress up, depending on the occasion.

A white shirt can be tucked into your favourite pair of jeans, fitted into a pencil skirt, or even worn with sneakers!

No matter your age and style, you can’t go wrong with a white shirt. In particular, were absolutely loving the Live-In Oversized Shirt from Fate + Becker this season, both for its versatility and style!

Here are some of our favourite ways to wear our favourite white shirt:

Wear with denim:

While we no doubt like the sophistication of a white shirt for work, there is something so timeless and classy about wearing a white shirt with denim. From light jeans to black , a white shirt will take you from a casual lunch to a dinner date, without even having to change. It’s all about the shoes you wear – whether you want to dress up your white shirt and denim look with heels, or keep it simple with sneakers.

Rock with sneakers:

Yes it’s true! You can wear a white shirt with sneakers! To rock an on-trend sporty look, throw on the crisp button-down, and reach for a pair of comfy sneakers—looking chic has never been so effortless!

Add a skirt:

As a crisp white tailored shirt is quite masculine, we love to add a girlie touch by teaming it with a skirt. The options are endless here, whether you opt for a pleated light-weight girlie style or a more tailored pencil skirt.

Adding a skirt is a great time to play with colour – so don’t be afraid to mix your white shirt with a bold printed skirt or statement colour.

Layer it up:

The weather in Australia is certainly unpredictable, so layering your white shirt is a must. Think a boxy sweater with the collar exposed, a structured biker jacket, or a blazer. Psst, we also love toughening up a white shirt with a leather jacket! So classic, and so effortless!

Wear with light hues:

As we find ourselves dreaming of summer, there’s no better way to rock a white shirt than by pairing it with easily light hues! Think tan, white on white and subtle touches of pastels and greys.

Tuck it in or let it flow:

Yes! That's right! One white shirt really is the answer to all your outfit woes! A simple oversized shirt can be worn in so many ways, from loose and flowy to tucked in and belted. You can also mix up your styling with a half and half effect, or try tying it up at the front, and pairing with your favourite high waisted bottoms.

Accessories to a minimum:

The key to making a white shirt look chic? Keep your outfit simple and clean. You wont often hear us say not to accessories, but in this case, go minimal. A nice gold chain or simple necklace is all you need to compliment your outfit, add your favourite BLAAX watch and you're on your way!
