Perhaps when you think of the classic white button up shirt, you are reminded of the epic 80′s movie scene when Tom Cruise bares all below the waist in nothing but his tighty-whities and a button up white oxford as he shakes his tush to Bob Segar’s Old Time Rock & Roll. Or perhaps those of you who are more refined (eh-hem), instantly think of fashion icon Carolina Herrera who has claimed the white button up as a main staple in her elegant wardrobe- though usually paired with ornate long skirts or beautifully tailored trousers. Don it with skinny jeans, flats and a string of pearls or with a sophisticated pencil skirt and a slick pair of stilettos, this piece can certainly transcend the borders between casual and formal. Fashionista Olivia Palermo rocks a white oxford every chance she gets, exuding an effortlessly chic persona while Hollywood royalty like Angelina Jolie showcase the white button up as formal yet relaxed paired with a slim fitting skirt and ballet flats. Either way, one thing is clear- the white button up shirt is a versatile wardrobe piece that we should all certainly own.
