Chic Ways to Wear Your White Shirt

February 28, 2017 • By

Trends come and go, but the versatility of the classic white button-down is perpetual. It has the benefits of a blank slate and can be dressed down or dressed up. It can be knotted or tucked into our favorite pair of jeans, styled with a pair of relaxed sneakers, paired with a voluminous skirt, the list goes on… need we say more?

From the office to date night, and everything in between, consider this your field guide to getting the most out of one of the most underestimated pieces from some of our favorite bloggers.

Knot so basic

Leave a couple of buttons undone at the bottom and then tie it up. Note: super cute in summer.

5.

Half ‘n Half

Done, but undone. Together, but not too much. Leave a couple of bottom buttons loose and tuck one side to reveal the waist. Très flattering!

  • Step 4: Laugh each and every day!  The expression “laughter is the best medicine” is nothing to laugh about! It’s true! Research shows that there is a decrease in stress hormones, a reduction in artery inflammation and an increase in HDL, or the “good” cholesterol when we laugh. Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, cardiologist and director of women and heart disease at the New York City Lenox Hill Hospital said,  “Once you start laughing, it forces you to feel better,” said Dr. Steinbaum, who is also a spokeswoman for the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement. An added bonus: the positive effects of a good chuckle have been found to last 24 hours. Now that’s the kind of medicine we love!
