A Classic Style Piece: The White Dress Shirt

There is just something so timeless and sexy about the Classic White Dress Shirt.  Over sized or fitted, you can’t go wrong with such a simple look.  A crisp collar reminds me of Marlene Dietrich in Blonde Venus, Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s makes oversized charming,  Virna Lisi in How to Murder Your Wife is absolutely irrisistable in her wardrobe staple or when the casual way Sharon Stone wore it at the 1998 Oscars. Playing with edge of androgyny, everyone connects to this amazing style piece.  Wear it with a corset and have a Victorian Influence, tie it at the waist and its ’50s inspired. Steal your partner’s shirt and now you have a intimate reminder of them.

Whether you’re doing a glamour or boudoir photoshoot, a white shirt instantly adds a look of class and sophistication.  Looking to make the classic white shirt a little more naughty?  Wear the shirt open, taking control of what you show.  It is such a flattering look as you can hide all manner of sin.  You need only hint at your curves and the viewer’s eye will be teased.

Au naturel or totally glammed up, you can make this look your own.  Playfully laughing, striking a pose, the classic white shirt is absolutely perfect.  There are moments to show off every inch of your skin and there are moments keep things mysterious and this style piece is perfect for both.  We all remember a moment where we threw on our lover’s shirt while we lounged around on the weekend.  Keep that memory alive with a photo of yourself in a loved one’s shirt.

Not sure what to wear to your next boudoir photoshoot or night out? Throw on the white dress shirt and create a classic fashion statement. Make this look your own and I promise it will be a memorable moment.  It has always been a staple in my wardrobe and I never feel more confident then when I’m wearing it.
