4 Ways to Wear a White Shirt | PPP

4 ways to wear white

Each month Anna, Ann and I are styling a ‘classic’ item and this month it’s the turn of the boring classic white shirt.
White shirts are supposed to be a “Wardrobe staple” that “Every woman should own!”

I find it hard to see past the link with school, or my old waitresses uniform.
White shirts leave me feeling bored and uninspired.

Perfect for this month’s ping pong piece!

These posts are supposed to help breath a little life into otherwise uninspiring items.

4 ways to wear white

This white shirt is sleeveless, and made a perfect ‘fake’ collar for a red dress.
However, a full sleeve would probably have worked better for me as I would have prefered an extra layer!.

A bold belt and Leopard shoes were all this outfit needed to make it feel like me!

BELT: French Connection
SHOES: Office …these are cool too!
BAG: Hidesign…this is nice.
GLASSES: Tkmax…. these are lovely.

Monica from Señora Allnut

Monica is one of my favourite bloggers!
She is uniquely stylish.
Her use of colour is a constant source of inspiration, as she is someone who clashes and mixes colour/print/pattern in unexpected ways.
Her outfits prove that preferring comfort is no excuse for being boring.

Plus, her smile is contagious!

I am thrilled to have her join us this month and take on the challenge of a white shirt.
{I knew this would be a big change for her….Monica is not a white shirt kind of girl!}

I love how she ‘cheated’ a little by using a white shirt as a jacket/cardigan.
This is how to wear something plain and make it fun, colourful and fabulous!

Be sure to follow Monica on Instagram for more inspiration!

Anna from Anna’s Island Style

Anna’s shirt is classic, basic and traditional…. none of these adjectives apply to Anna!
{Okay, there are pleats and bold buttons, but you know what I mean. 😊}

She has taken the boring shirt (her words as well as mine!) and given it a kick up the rear with this funky pattern clash.
A completely masculine idea (trousers, shirt, waistcoat) with a totally feminine twist.
There is a mermaid/man feel for me that I love.
Helped a little by her location, I’m sure!

Follow Anna on Instagram for more style inspiration….prepare for location envy!

Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

Ann has gone all white.
Making the white shirt part of an achromatic outfit (no colour at all) adds impact.
Ann really suits white, and this outfit looks fabulous on her.
Casual but beautifully elegant.

All-white outfits are so chic looking, even when the pieces are all casual.
There is something about wearing all-white that says “I must be a pulled together and organised person to wear this”.
Brilliant for when you want to make an impression.

Is there a classic item you would like to see featured?
Do you wear white shirts?
Or, do they remind you of school uniform?
