Fashion approved by one of the most famous gals of the upper east side, white shirts, and waist training corset belts is definitely the new vogue as the little Jenner is seen sporting this look quite a few times now.

Whether it be a clubbing night or wine and a chocolate party, a white shirt can be quite effortlessly styled for a super glam look. With just a simple game-play of styling and fabrics, a basic item like this white shirt can be put into a luxe outfit.

For this look, we would recommend picking out a white shirt with a fabric like a chiffon or a one that has a satin or silky finish as those textiles have that “glam-factor.”

Experimentation is always fun so to turn it up a nudge let’s style it by unbuttoning the first few buttons and let the shoulders of the shirt slip down to bare the collarbones.

As seen on Pinterest, a lacey bralette underneath the shirt and a glitzy choker on the neck would make the outcome just so much more sensual.

The best part about the ensemble is that it can be paired with any bottoms and would still be glamorous.


Laid back days are the best ones! Sometimes, a casual outfit is needed for such days when comfort is the utmost priority and a white shirt can cater to that in a fashionable way!

Pair this classic with a skater skirt, a pair of leggings or comfy shorts for a relaxed look.  To make this #ootd very casual and fresh, unbutton the last 3-5 buttons of your shirt and tie a knot.

Put on your fav sneakers and we’re good to go!

Bold and beautiful

Making a statement is always a good thing but going bold means taking a risk. Uh, hello! Not with a white shirt. This piece of clothing is so adaptable and easy to work with which is why it is the perfect choice to wear with bold print bottoms or heavy makeup.

Fascinated by a Layer on a layer? So are we, it’s fashionable and so in vogue but honestly it can be quite intimidating when it comes to juggling with prints, patterns, and colors which is why a lot of people don’t try it out.
