Trend alert: white shirt

Helsinki, 0 degrees

Blue jeans, white shirt. Walked into the room - you know you made my eyes burn. It was like, James Dean, for sure.

This week I've been excited about some of the new fashion trends for spring 2013 - especially the reinventing of the classical statement white shirt!

"The white blouse can be light and floating, impeccable and austere, sumptuous and all-enveloping, tight and close-fitting. It rises up to frame the face. It sculpts the body by transforming itself into a second skin. Imputed with glamour and poetry, freedom and impetuousness, the prim white shirt turns out to have a thousand identities…”  -Gianfranco Ferre

The elegant white shirt is a classic garment that effortlessly finds itself a place in a woman’s wardrobe, time and time again. Traditional and/or modern the white shirt is amongst the few items able to really highlight grace, femininity and good taste - so easily, yet so effectively. Fashionising introduced some of my favorite looks for this season.

Finnnish fashion blog Strictly style also introduced some white shirt looks that caught my eye. I especially liked the idea of combining a black bottom with the white shirt.

My version of the white shirt look for this spring consists of black pants from H&M, a white shirt from Jackpot and a black second hand statement necklace. You can see my earlier white shirt looks here and here.


How will you wear the white shirt this spring? Does it belong to your warderobe?

  1. well, of course I have a white shirt in my wardrobe and I have combined it with black and red for example because I love that trio. what I also love are striped shirts and I just got one for 1 euro and was totally thrilled. btw, before reading your post I didn't know this was a trend. and combining white with black is pretty much always the right way.
