Someone DMed me the other day asking about my favorite white shirts. Besides grey sweaters, I can’t seem to get enough white shirts. I have a huge selection because I find that they’re perfect for just about every occasion.
So I have to confess that my NUMBER ONE favorite shirt is an oxford cloth button down from Joe Fresh. But it’s discontinued. I check every month to see if it’s in their new arrivals again because if they bring it back a) I’m buying 10 more to squirrel away and b) I’ll tell you so you can go out and do the same. It is the best for a casual look but still layers well under sweaters. Joe Fresh design team, if you’re out there… let’s bring it back.
I don’t have this exact oxford shirt, but this one looks almost identical to the one I have (and love) from Joe Fresh.
This is HANDS DOWN the best white t-shirt on the market. I could not recommend it more. It’s the perfect fit and not see through at all which is so hard to come by. It’s also one of those white tees that washes brilliantly– it comes out of the laundry looking brand new.
I don’t have this exact blouse, but I have a similar one from three years ago that I love. A little fun black detailing makes it a little more interesting than your standard white shirt.
I love the perfect stretch shirts from J. Crew. They also launder and steam so nicely. I have collected a few variations over the years.
If you need a white shirt that’s sharp and fun at the same time? Try the tuxedo shirt! I love the way it looks with casual denim.
My most recent white shirt is this bodysuit. Guys. It’s BRILLIANT. It’s so easy to wear and you don’t have to worry about constantly tucking your shirt in. YES. (I had so many questions over DM about how it works when you go to the bathroom, haha… So, there are little snaps like a onesie which is incredibly awkward, but it works. It’s so much easier than dealing with a romper.)
I’m tempted to get a few more styles because I loved not dealing with tucking.
This white long sleeve t-shirt is one I wear year-round. It’s super comfortable and fits like a glove. In the winter, I layer it under sweaters and in the summer, I think it looks really cute with denim shorts and other casual looks.
I’d say this is more of a splurge for a white shirt, but it’s so worth it. It’s a gorgeous silk blouse and literally just a dream to wear. It’s cute for casual looks (I like to roll the sleeves, as seen here!) but it works for professional settings too tucked into slim trousers!
PS Another great spot for affordable white blouses (casual + work + dressy) is Express. I have a piped blouse from there that is great! Sometimes the material is the ~most~ breathable, but for under $50 you can’t beat their selection and style.
