A new white shirt is the way to go for a great Spring update. I’m done with knitwear and dark winter colours I want to feel that I’m heading full pelt into spring and there’s nothing I love more than a fabulous statement white shirt. I dress them up, I dress them down, shove on a great piece of jewellery and it’s an instant cool, modern style statement. They’re my go-to fix for a bad day, a fat day or a down in the dumps day, put it on, add a lick of lipstick and you’re done – worth every penny!
Here are five of my Spring launch favourites.
I know it’s pricey, but it’s totally gorgeous and guaranteed to have people asking you where it’s from. A softer version of a classic and a great length. Works well with jeans or more tailored trousers but be careful with crops because combining with a longer top might make your legs look short.
Cos always has versions of a classic white shirt. I love that the slightly more voluminous body of this one is balanced by the 3/4 length sleeve.
I love ME & EM shirts – the fabric quality is always terrific and they seem to have that edge of cut. The clean lines of this simple top look elegant and there are no buttons to pop or gape.
Uterque is a lesser known brand from the Indetex stable (Zara, Massimo Dutti etc). Good fabrics, a better fit than Zara and edgy shapes and styling details – well worth a look for something a bit different.
This sleeve style is going to be everywhere this spring/ summer. Personally, I wouldn’t add jewellery to this – just let the sleeves do the talking.
