5 Ways to Style the White Shirt – for OCRF

There is nothing more versatile than the humble white shirt. Earlier this month Witchery launched their White Shirt Campaign for 2015 in support of the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF). By buying a white shirt from Witchery 100% of gross profits from the garment go towards OCRF to help raise awareness and develop an early detection test – which is so important when 1 woman dies from ovarian cancer every 10 hours.

On the 1st of May Witchery and OCRF would love to as many people as possible wearing their white shirt so I thought it was appropriate to share my favourite ways to style the white shirt.

The beauty of the white shirt is that it is extremely versatile and no matter what way you style it, it will always remain a classic and chic staple.

Witchery has many different styles and variations of the classic white shirt to choose from, but my shirt of  choice is the ‘OCRF Cutwork Shirt‘:

OCRF Cutwork Shirt

1. Cut-off denim and a blazer

White and denim is always a crisp pairing – even when the denim is distressed. To keep the look more Sunday brunch than beach just add a tailored blazer.

2. Formal

The white shirt isn’t just for corporates (given I have never worked a 9-5 desk job, I should know!) For date night or a formal event give elevate the white shirt by tucking into a full, formal skirt. Cuffing the sleeves keeps the outfit from looking stiff.

3. Buttons up

Let a shirt with with funky detailing speak for itself by buttoning it all the way to the collar. The look should be kept clean so compliment the white shirt by adding a bejewelled collar piece tucked under the shirt’s collar.

4. 90’s Crop

90’s revival is on trend right now, so make the most of all those crops from summer and put them to good use by layering them over the white shirt – a la Cher.

5. Preppy boy meets girl

I love playing with androgynous looks, sometimes playing “boy” can exude unexpected sex appeal. Give extra textile to the overall look by layering the white shirt with ripped boyfriend jeans and a baggy jumper. Brogues are the ultimate shoe choice.

  • How to Style the White Shirt – For Witchery & OCRF – Running in Chanel :

    […] This look is perfect for Autumn when it can be warm one minute and cold the next. Layer a knit over the white shirt. My favourite is this sleeveless long tunic, also from available from Witchery, which allows the beautiful cuff detail to be seen. The split hem also allows for easy movement. Still too cool? Layer with a knit jumper (as shown on last year’s White Shirt post). […]
