Simply Chic: Why You Need A Crisp White Shirt

There are a few wardrobe staples that I believe every woman simply cannot live without. If you create a capsule wardrobe out of classics, you’ll never run out of something to wear. It’s all about investing in must-have pieces: the perfect skinny jeans (in blue, black and white), a classic leather jacket, block heel mules, a fringe crossbody bag, a little black dress… and of course, the crisp white shirt.

Having just gone to New York Fashion Week, I noticed a trend going up and down the catwalks that I’m obsessed with: shirting, in all variations, silhouettes and cuts. You might’ve seen this post from a while back (I practically live in this off-shoulder poplin shirt in menswear blue), and these types of crisp shirting styles that were already very popular this year are still going to be huge going into next. Whether it’s a cool asymmetrical or off-shoulder style, or even just a classic silhouette, don’t hesitate to invest in this particular staple piece this season.

There is (almost) no wrong way to wear a classic shirt. I love them because they’re work appropriate tucked into a pencil skirt and paired with killer pumps, or even styled super casually with denim shorts for summer (with the sleeves rolled up!). I went for a formal-meets-casual look here, styling a dressy white shirt and evening earrings with patchwork denim (one of my favorite trends this fall) and comfy flats. See what I mean about creating a closet full of staples? If you have classic jeans, tops and shoes to choose from, you can whip up a cool outfit in less than 5 mins.

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
