The White Shirt: 3 Ways to Style the Classic Shirt

Taliah is the founder of the blog Fashion Was Here, where she shares her personal style and love for food and interior decorating.

The classic button-up shirt in a crisp white color is probably the most versatile piece in your closet.

Our closet may share several similar items that can really do our wardrobe and style no wrong. Like a black chic blazer for work or that LBD aka little black dress for a date night; however, all attention is going to the quintessential white shirt at this moment. The classic button-up shirt in a crisp white color is probably the most versatile piece in your closet. Don't believe me? Feast your eyes on these three looks showcasing feminine flirty to western chic. The best thing about the white shirt is the tons of variety they come in. When I searched for street style inspiration for this simple yet definitive piece, I discovered a bounty of looks and thought to myself how any woman or man can take this shirt to their biggest height in style. It's really effortless but it's all about the fit and mood you're in. Hopefully you can take some inspiration from these styles and recreate new looks with the shirt that we may all have, share and love.

Feminine flirty:

Try a girly miniskirt with spring-inspired flowers with your white shirt. Pairing it with a statement, multicolored strand necklace and black sleek pumps makes it super stylish.
