In the fashion hall of fame, the white shirt holds a unique position of being an icon of ageless style and a versatile wardrobe wonder that can cater to every mood or occasion. You can dress it up with jewellery, keep it casual with denim, offer a smart spin with tailored trousers or go whimsical with a full-length skirt.
What's more, it looks undeniably stylish at every age—whether you're 18 or 80. This was an important draw for Zeynep Tansug, the designer behind brand-of-the-moment Pieces of White, which, over the last three years, has been winning the hearts of the fashion crowd with its clever redefining of the white shirt's DNA via sculptural silhouettes and standout details.
This fresh approach to basics seems even more relevant in the current climate, as many of us are in the process of reconciling our new WFH status with a desire to still feel good—both mentally and physically—and be ready for the workday.
So to get an insight into how the professionals are navigating this new sartorial maze, we went to the source and asked Zeynep to show us the four ways she's styling her white shirts at home this spring.
Delivering plenty of the brand's signature paired-back aesthetic, the designer has looked to loungewear staples (think leggings and white tees) alongside spring-ready shoes and elevating accessories. Scroll down to get all the white shirt inspo you could ever need.
