How to Style a White Shirt? (Tips and Tricks)

  • Choose a thick material if you don’t want your top to be see-through. A common complaint we see with white shirts for women is that they tend to be a little see-through, especially tee shirts and such. Look for quality fabrics and always test it out before purchasing to ensure it’s not going to show your bra.
  • Whether it is boyfriend jeans, ripped jeans, denim jeans, flared pants or any kind of jeans, the perfect quickest, cheapest and easiest way to pair your white shirt is with the jeans. Ditch the remaining pieces and first give a chance to your jeans in the closet.
  • Always check your shirt when getting dressed for stains. Unfortunately, white pieces are prone to stains. Always give it a quick once-over before running out the door to save you any embarrassment later in the day!
