One of the most versatile items a woman can have in her wardrobe is a plain white shirt.
This piece of clothing that initially was worn by men, has over a century of history. Originally, the white shirt was an item worn only by gentleman but as time passed it became accessible to all men and soon the term “white collar man” became a fashion statement. In recent times, the white shirt still embodies status and luxury, for both men and women.
In Hollywood actresses like Katherine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, as well as Audrey Hepburn, and among many others, all adopted the white shirt.
Designers like Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Dior, Stella McCartney, and Tom Ford, all have revised this timeless classic in one moment or another.
