They say that nothing is certain in life. We, however, we beg to differ. After all, you can always count on the elegance and versatility of a white Equipment shirt. It’s a timeless staple that lends itself to infinite outfit possibilities. To illustrate our point, we asked five of our editors to show us how they’d style the blouse incorporating pieces from their own wardrobes. Check out their diverse range of looks after the jump.
Katherine Power, Co-Founder, Who What Wear and Byrdie: “I have many different Equipment shirts, in many different colours, but the one I wear most is the Brett shirt in bright white ($198). It’s clean and classic, and it looks just as good with a high wasted black pants and a blazer as it does with a pair of denim shorts in the summer.”
Nicole Kliest, Senior Editor, Who What Wear: “A minimal, sleeveless, button-down shirt is the perfect transitional piece from winter to spring. I paired mine with striped shorts and tied a knit around the waist for an on-the-go, tomboy-inspired look.”
Kat Collings, Associate Editor, Who What Wear: “An Equipment button-down shirt is like a blank canvas—it's so classic you can style it a million ways. I threw a camouflage print sweater over my shoulders to add a touch of edge to my look.”
Lexy Lebsack, Senior Editor, Byrdie: “The amazing thing about a white button-down shirt is that you can literally wear it with anything. I especially like styling it with a more fashion-forward separate, like overalls.”
Laurie Trott, Fashion Director, Who What Wear: “When it comes to everyday dressing, white button-down shirts are a part of my go-to uniform. This lightweight cotton version ($168) is both modern and timeless, and I love the way the shirt’s clean lines complement my favourite boyfriend jeans.”
