The classic white shirt

Let’s take a moment to recognise the timelessness of the classic white shirt.

Every wardrobe needs at least one good white shirt. A crisp white well fitted white shirt for day will take you anywhere. 

The beauty of a white shirt is that is can be worn over or under, tucked or untucked. Wrap it, tie it, play with it, but most importantly, just have fun with it. There is nothing sexier than a woman in a white shirt.

There's a time and a place for a cotton shirt, be it a white, striped or colourful variation, and these too are handy things to have in your wardrobe. But a crisp white shirt adheres to a different kind of look, and there's no denying a silk alternative is both more playful and, arguably, sexier too! Ergo, the perfect piece to wear for any occasion.

There is no wardrobe staple quite like the silk shirt. Completely versatile, seriously classic and never outdated. It's the one item that every woman should own in their wardrobe.

A classic white silk shirt is your summer secret weapon!

A timeless crisp white shirt may sound conservative but nothing looks more stylish in the sun. Toss it on over a bikini at the beach stress-free.

A favourite of models, stylists and editors alike, the white shirt is the perfect summer throw on and will ensure you keep your cool as the temperatures soar. 

Whoever you choose to draw inspiration from when styling a silk shirt, there is one thing that is certain. Whatever you want the silk shirt to be, it will be. Whatever role you want it to play, it will play. Be it casual, effortless, stylish, smart, tailored or masculine. It's the chameleon in your wardrobe. 


Perfect for layering

Another reason why we love the silk shirt is that they lend themselves very well to being layered. A silk shirt really comes into its own during the transitional period between late summer and early autumn. 

Master the art of layering for both practical and stylish necessity. Your favourite silk shirt can work all year round – worn both under and over different garments – allowing for the chicest of looks. A silk shirt looks equally as fabulous peeping out from under a leather jacket as it does a lightweight trench or blazer making it the perfect trans-seasonal piece!

Style your white shirt with a leather jacket. A buttery-soft black leather biker jacket is luxurious and always on trend. Worn simply over the shoulders it looks chic and cool and layers easily in the cooler Fall months.

While fashion editors like to talk about pieces that are versatile enough to see you through all manner of occasions, few items do so as seamlessly as a silk white shirt.
