Here's a look into how shirting trends have evolved for the modern day contemporary workwear wardrobe

The versatility of the humble white shirt makes it a wardrobe staple that can be styled in a myriad of ways. We love a good white button down because it's evergreen in our opinion. You can dress it down with your favourite jeans and sneakers or dress it up with a printed midi skirt and stilettos. No matter what occasion or season it is, a white shirt is a fail-safe sartorial choice

It's the classic clothing piece that remains impervious to ever changing fashion fads. Whether your like a crisp cotton shirt or a luxurious silk one, there is always a right ‘white shirt’ for you out there. Here are some of the ways we like to style our basic but classic white shirt -   

  1. Black Trousers - You can team a crisp white shirt with a slim fit black trousers & accessorize it with a pair of stilettos and tote bag and your ready for any meeting. Add a black jacket to top it off.
