The timeless White Shirt

Hello guys, sorry to have been lazy these days, I’m so busy with my new job and not much time to update my blog… Anyway, as Spring is (finally) coming softly, the pullover has been removed and the shirts begin to reappear. The white shirts, the forever classic piece is what I’m gonna talk about today.

The reason for what I’m falling in love (again) with the white shirt is that I recently bought a new white oversize-cut shirt from COS, (as you may know, COS is really famous for its numerous style of shirts, specially the white shirts). And I begin to think, there are maybe not many pieces who can be timeless: the jeans, the black dress, and the white shirt.

The white shirt is simple and pure, with a pure spirit of minimalism. it seems nothing else would be needed to decorate this piece. The white shirt can be simply with a jean, a skirt, or…nothing else!

My favorite style is the over-sized, unisex cut white shirt. (you know me, I’m a so over-size fan!)

I always prefer the white shirt in pur coton, as the character of this material can easily adapt the different cuts and can give different aspects when wore by different person.

Maybe the over-sized white shirt is less formal than a fitted one, but there won’t be any problem to wear it at work if you are wearing it right.


Time for shopping! First of all, let me show you guys the famous shirt that I bought from COS.

Nowadays, the white shirt seems to become longer and longer, so that it turns into a shirt-dress.

Well, perhaps you aren’t an “over-sized” person and you prefer the more traditional “old school” one. No problem, you can pick this kind of style and still make yourself a fashionable girl!

PS: A.P.C is one of my favorite Parisian brand. Created in 1987 by Jean Touitou -a Tunisian-French designer, it has a spirit of purity and minimalism, a total “BCBG“(=Bon chic bon genre ,French for good style, good class )Parisian style.


Finally, speak of white shirt, we can’t possibly miss the French luxury brand – Anne Fontaine, who is famous for her classic white shirt.

Anne Fontaine makes White shirt an art,a piece full of creation and imagination. Every details matters and the inspiration is everywhere. Anyway, you can find here the most classic white shirts to the most extravagant ones.
