Your new-season work shirt is ready

By Lucy Glen, 3 May 2017

Versatile. It's a word that describes J-Lo (triple-threat for life), Pawpaw balm (lips, cheek shine and insect bites, obvs) and, sartorially speaking, the white button-down shirt. It is the building block of so many outfits: worn for work, going out or as a casj beach cover-up. This season it's all about the dramatic proportions and unique details. Think over-sized cuffs, cut-outs, elaborate sleeve-ties and exaggerated shoulders. Read on for styling tips to get more mileage from this classic wardrobe wonder.

Turn up your trackies

It's official. Wearing trackies as your day-to-day pants option is now socially acceptable. Trust us. The clean lines of the side stripe and the box-fresh white sneaks work a dream with the exaggerated sleeved shirt. We dare you to try.

Classic combo

Yeah, yeah, you've seen the blue-jeans-and-white-shirt combo before. But try this 2017 update featuring denim cropped with a paper bag waist (key), and finished with a preppy cross-body bag and loafers (to feel particularly grown-up in).

Keen as mustard

Looking for ways to wear the shirt from day to night? No problem. Pair with a printed mini for business-ready vibes and throw on this season's outerwear hero, the robe. Pair with sporty socks and creeper boots for a laid-back finish then switch to block heels for drinks at the bar.
