The white button-down shirt – it’s one of those “closet staples” that everyone recommends you own. I spent years trying to get comfortable in the button down. I found I looked either too corporate, too much like a waiter, or frumpy… and I couldn’t see how the heck to make this work! After finally finding what I think looks good on my petite 5″3 frame, I’ve realised there are so many options for different body types, depending on the effect you’re going for.
I’ve done some research for you and chosen my favourites, with the links for you. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, I love to hear from you. I hope I can help!
The Oxford Shirt
It’s the classic. Slightly oversized. If you’re a taller, straight figured woman, you will look chic and sophisticated. If you’re more petite but you love oversized – try this one as it is and look cute, or dd a belt and wear it as a mini dress for added sexiness. The classic white button down looks good on any age too!
Alternatively, check out this ultra sophisticated slim fit version by Polo Ralph Lauren. Wear it casual chic with jeans, or make it elegant with a maxi skirt.
For the Ultra Feminine
If you prefer to honour your feminine silhouette and just don’t feel the classic button down is for you, check these next ones out!
The billowy sleeves on these next two are like the prairie dress of button downs. so feminine, so effortlessly beautiful. My personal favourite is the second option: the “Varsity Shirt” from Shieke – one of my favourite Australian retailers.
For the Curvy Goddess
If you’ve been blessed with a pear or an hourglass figure, this will look amazing on you! It’s an incredible sexy cut that really emphasises those curves!
For the Free Spirit
The white shirt doesn’t have to be a button down. Just a staple that can be versatile that you feel 100% your authentic self in. For those who love a lightweight, free flowing vibe, check out these gorgeous finds!
For the Fashionista
For the women who go above and beyond. Who exceed expectations in the world of fashion. Who are a little bit extra.
I really hope this list helped you find your perfect white shirt, but if you’re still after more, check out these links below and as always, let me know your thoughts. You know I love to hear from you.
