A perfectly edited wardrobe can set you free just as great pair of shoes can lead the way. If your are reading this, it only means one thing: You are delving into the matters of minimalism. Needing less and buying better will be your new mantra.
Minimalism never means monochromatic. It simply means less being more, making work, party, travel and just plain living a breeze. Which in this case, is all things White shirt.
She was crisp. She was fresh like morning coffee. She was subtle yet, ever so sofisticated. She could be playful if she wanted to, yet walk in a room and demand your attention if she dared to, too. I won’t ever forget my first white shirt. It was my mother’s, passed onto me. It was my version of the LBD. It was love at first button.
From then on, I would only buy almost similar pieces as I started building my own wardrobe and personal style. I came across Karen Millen’s new White Shirts selection recently and was incredibly inspired. From the Belle Sleeve beauty, to the chic ruffled piece, down to the white classic button down – I loved them all and boy did I figure out all the different ways to wear them.
Pairing this White Belle sleeve top with leather bottoms and a dramatic coat gives a great balance of classic and edgy into one look. Wearing this to my meetings made a professional statement while keeping my signature edge !
Would you believe that this is the same White Belle sleeve top from the previous outfit? I wanted to give this playful girl’s date / date night look a little flare by adding in a touch of color – red never fails, by the way.
A day in town makes me want to live in jeans – and The ultimate classic ofcourse: The Classic White button down. I paired this look with easy black heels and Karen Millen’s fabulous leather jackets which by the way you can never go wrong with.
The perfect shade of red makes everything better and I’m not just talking about lippies! I paired this Karen Millen White Ruffled top with red culottes, red heels ( my go-to pair that’s super sexy and comfortable), and topped with a dramatic coat for the ultimate head turner. Still a classic but this a femme twist.
These white shirts will never age a day. Wear them any way with everything you own and you have a thousand outfits! The best part? You can purchase all of these pieces from head to toe on Karen Millen’s website or a local one near you.
