7 Days 7 Ways | How to Wear a Classic White Shirt Every Day of the Week

By Zo Zhou - 15 Sep 2015

Just about everyone (no really, boyfriends included) will have a white button down, but that doesn’t mean it has to look boring. In fact, one of the reasons we love this classic so much is that we can go from our desks to dancing (and casual lunches in between) with a few simple tweaks to our ensemble.

As the blouse of choice for Carine Roitfeld, the signature Equipment blouse is not going to date in your wardrobe any time soon. We love the slim cut that’ll look flattering on its own or work well under a blazer or jacket. Plus, you’ll be looking for excuses to get all that fluttery silk goodness against your skin for the warmer weather.

Here’s how to take this closet staple from cool to hot, any day of the week. You’ll never wonder how to wear a white shirt again.
