“You can wear a white shirt with anything. It’s the person and the way that they wear it that makes it different. I have been designing white shirts forever, but I don’t get tired of it.” ~ Carolina Herrera
The white shirt is truly a chameleon – something so simple, yet wildly versatile. Depending on your mood (Feeling flirty? Lazy? Dressy?) you can style it a million ways.
Whether you’re at work or conducting an online playdate or just stepping out for a grocery run, it can be worn everywhere. I am personally obsessed with them. It’s something I land up buying every time I travel, not only because of its versatility but also how easy it is to style.
Since I needed some fashion inspiration, I thought I’d turn to 5 of India’s top stylists to show us how to a style 5 white shirts in 5 very unique ways.
1. Shaleena Nathani for Deepika Padukone
This is one of my favourite looks on Deepika. It’s flirty, edgy and powerful at the same time.
2. Eshaa Amiin for Yami Gautam
I love colour blocking and a white shirt is a perfect way to offset the two colours.
3. Ami Patel for Shraddha Kapoor
A white shirt dress can be dressed up or down depending on your mood. Wear it with sneakers to run errands OR with stilettos and a corset for date night.
4. Rhea Kapoor for Rhea Kapoor
Mom jeans with a white shirt is an instant classic look. Like Rhea, style it with some chunky jewellery to make it fresh and contemporary.
5. Sanam Ratansi for Aditi Rao Hyadri
Since the temperatures are rising, replace the jeans with denim shorts and do the half tuck or add a waist belt to give it more definition.
Which of the above looks is your favourite? Tell us in the comments below!
