Gone are the days when these shirts were simple formal wear apparel. You can pair it up with denim, skirts, shorts and coats and create a new look every time. And today, I will be sharing some styling hacks about how to spruce up your wardrobe and style your white shirt.

2) Tales of the trouser


Planning for a formal look but don’t want to spend a lot of time perfecting it? Pair up a white shirt with a beige or cream colored fitting trouser, loop in a nice belt and you are good to go. Works well for formal meetings and semi-formal events and parties.

3) Skirt selection


If you are in for a long summer day, doing outdoorsy stuff and looking for an outfit that screams boho-chic then pairing up a white shirt with flared and printed midi skirt would be a great option. The cute skirt and plain white shirt will balance each other out and give you an effortless look.
