The Crisp White Shirt: Part 1


white shirt 2This is our first fashion blog post so we are very excited! Our fashion ‘know-it-alls” were brainstorming on what the very first post should be about and decided that since it’s summer it should be something light. Ideas flew back and forth, the line from The Devil Wears Prada “Florals for Spring, ground-breaking” was thrown into the mix as a means to dispell the “light = summer” debate. But then I remembered someone saying to me once,” Everyone should own a crisp, white shirt! Man or woman, you simply must have one.” And there the idea was born…”The Crisp White Shirt”. images

Because there are so many things to say about this particular subject, we are doing it in parts! So, this week we will just be focusing on the shirt itself and why you SHOULD have it!

Once You Go White

Now, whatever your job or profession, whether it be waitress or Miranda Priestly herself – the basic white shirt is a must have. You can wear it with anything and definitely wear it to any occasion. We will talk more about the style, fabric, texture in more detail in the next post!

For the guys: A white shirt is something that is great for any event or occasion! If you are wearing a suit for a formal dinner or interview a white shirt is the perfect item of clothing. You can even wear it for a casual Sunday outing.

The white shirt is a fashion basic. Even if you don’t know anything about fashion or suffer from lack of style or fashion sense, like my sister, know that this is the a step in the right direction.

In short, the white shirt goes with anything and everything!

Look out for part 2 of “The Crisp White Shirt” next week, where we will talk about style, cut, fabric…

And remember, being healthy doesn’t only mean eating well. It is also about having healthy fashion sense and making good fashion choices.

  1. I totally agree, I have 5 white shirts, all different in its own way. You can never have to many crisp white shirts and the emphasis is on crisp. I wear them with shorts to the the classic blue denims and white shirt. Cotton and linen are my favorite fabrics, and most importantly the cut of the shirt makes you either hot or not. I’m so looking forward to read next weeks blog. Keep up the awesome writing. Jc.

    • Yes, we totally agree! One white shirt is just simply not enough! And you are absolutely right – one can do so much mixing and matching with a white shirt!

      Thanks for giving us some of your style tips too!
