Dress up, dress down, it serves every occasion, can be paired up with high-waisted trousers, tailored slacks, shorts or skirts. Either layering the white shirt under a dress, or above it we can easily create an office outfit. Home office in a cosy wool jogger? No problem, the white button up shirt will provide a perfect professional look. My personal favourite: a simple white shirt with dark jeans, makes a basic business casual set and always gives me the same calmness as having a cup of delicious tea.
When it comes to materials, my recommendation would be always a high component of cotton or viscose, combination with elastin might give extra wearing comfort, however, it is a compromise on crispness. For super-feminine look silk is also a fantastic choice, nevertheless we can’t oversee the need of careful cleaning. Should you like coolness on your skin during hot summers? The linen shirt is the ever best option, even with its natural creases.
