INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
THE WHITE SHIRT 2.0
By Maybelle Morgan, August 25, 2017
Off-the-shoulder fun has been on the agenda for a few seasons now and there’s nothing like some peek-a-boo detailing to bring the cheeky to a tailored classic. Play with silhouettes and match the cropped shirt with sweeping high-waisted denim flares. Elevate with chunky platforms and show off bare shoulders with some gold bling.
The shirt dress has also had a super-dramatic evolution and, yep, we dig it. Renaissance-style ruffled detailing, a midi length and a drop-waist hem get the thumbs up. Dark circle shades and slogan sliders give the dress a low-key, cool monochrome look.
The charm's all in the arm, don’t ya know? In this case, oversized silhouettes make for the perfect mini dress and 2017’s obsession with the '80s gets a nod in the form of some extra-puffed balloon sleeves. Complement the extra shape with chunky platform sneakers, plus a quilted metallic mini-bag.
That whole dresses-over-pants trend gets a shout-out here, but opt for a longline waterfall hem shirt over a pair of raw-edge jeans for a cooler substitute. Choose super-technical, white sandals and XXL graphic earrings for the dreamiest end-of-summer outfit.
