I had a look thru Nina Garcia's book,
Nina is Marie Claire's Fashion Director
and Project Runway's judge.
I liked her White Hot tips
for dressing in a man's shirt.
* Keep it as close to a man's version as possible.
*No pearl buttons, no novelty buttons, no covered buttons.
*The best buttons look like (or are) mother-of-pearl,
and are sewn on a thick, double plated placket.
They should be sewn on on with
*Keep it basic. Go classic cotton or fine linen.
She also mentions great moment in men's white shirts:
* 1953 Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday.
*1956 Elizabeth Taylor in The Giant.
*1990: Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.
*1994 Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction.
*1998 Sharon Stone on the red carpet
at the 70th Annual Academy Awards.

I think, whichever way you look at it, there is always room for a few
white shirts in a woman's wardrobe. Whichever one suits you best.

Which white shirt do you like??
I think Elizabeth Taylor looks great,
I only wish I had a waist like that too :)
Any white shirts lingering in your closet ?
I have a few in all shapes and sizes.
My favourite is an oversized
one I purchased 20 years ago.
Still going strong!
