The Classics: White ways

FashionPlate_Aug_ShirtTales_02

Nothing says classic like a man-style white shirt – perfect with denim and a great contrast to leather. But lately, we’ve seen designers getting down to business with myriad rifts of this iconic wardrobe archetype.

Yves Saint Laurent has played patron with ruffled tuxedo shirts and off-shoulder peasant blouses bouncing back from his 1970s collections, just as floating bib tops (see UK retailer COS as pictured centre), are even giving knitwear a shirting spin. Perfect for buttoning up or buttoning down in this trans-seasonal weather.
