The Timeless Elegance of a White Button-Up Shirt: Why It’s Time to Get Back to Basics

Get Back to Basics With a White Button-Up Shirt

There is nothing like a perfectly crisp, white button-up shirt. Similar to a great pair of jeans, a classic sneaker, or a basic tee, the humble white shirt is a wardrobe essential every closet should have. The best ones are timeless foundation pieces that see a lot of wear, which makes investing in one you love all the more important. You can sport them during any time of year, and they can bring an effortlessly pulled together feel to any look. And now with spring drops starting to hit stores, it’s the perfect time to start filling those closets with fresh updates for the season ahead.

The Modern Workwear Edit

No longer are white button-ups reserved for just the board room. If the spring/summer 2024 runways taught us anything, the beauty is in their versatility—as is the variety of silhouettes that can be found. Maria Grazia Chiuri filled the Christian Dior ready-to-wear runway with loads of inspiration—from long, oversized button-downs styled over full maxi skirts to relaxed styles tucked into high-waisted skirts or layered underneath jumpsuits and parkas. Dior’s one-shouldered, asymmetric silhouettes are a clever styling tip as well for eveningwear. We also saw the return of the collarless, grand-dad shirt thanks to Altuzarra, Stella McCartney, and Victoria Beckham, who all had variations featured for the upcoming season.
