Here are a few tips when buying a your white shirt:
- Always check to see how “see-through” the shirt is when you try it on.
- Check the construction. Seams should be smooth and flat. If not, and the seams bunch, the shirt will look cheap.
- If white washes your complexion, try adding a pop of color with a necklace. Any bold color will work. Or add a cardigan or jacket/blazer if weather is an issue.
No matter what I put on with my white shirt, I always feel polished and sophisticated. You will too!
