A simple, white button-down shirt is a wardrobe staple that everyone should own. A timeless, classic piece that can be worn on every occasion, and will never go out of style. But as classy as it seems, how often do you find it difficult to style a basic white blouse? Other than pairing it with your favourite pair of skinny jeans and calling it a day, here are a few other interesting ways you can elevate your white blouse looks:
1. Pair It With Your Favourite Skirt
Everyone’s favorite look! A crisp white shirt paired with a blue mini skirt is one of the easiest ways to make you look presentable yet comfortable. I love to put a twist to it; I either tuck them in or tie them loosely at the ends. Voila! You can wear it to an informal meeting, lunch, or a coffee date. It’s timeless and looks chic all the way.
2. Pair It With A Statement Belt
If you have a petite figure, you can actually transform your basic white blouse to a sultry mini dress. Add a little spiciness to your look and wrap a big, statement belt around your waist. Finish it off with black pointy heels, and you’re good to go. I absolutely adore this look! It looks like you own a little mini dress a la Carrie Bradshaw (but really it’s just a basic blouse).
3. Pair It With Black Leather Pants
If there’s one thing I hate about living in Southeast Asia it’s the year-long hot weather – it’s hard for me to rock statement leather pants. However, if you’re someone who’s not seriously affected by bad weather, it is easy to wear almost every texture of clothing. Wear your white blouse with black leather pants and complete your look with high heels. It screams “bold fashion statement”.
4. Pair It With Straight White Pants
This look is perfect for those who prefer minimalist fashion. Honestly, it looks so classy, relaxed and super elegant. A good monochromatic moment will never go out of style. You’ll feel super confident in an all-white look. My suggestion is to accessorize with gold jewellery to elevate your appearance.
