We had previously waxed lyrically about the wonders of a white shirt and how to style them in non-classic ways to stand out from the rest.
White shirts look clean and neat, and it instantly makes you look polished and professional.
Not only are they great for power dressing for work, white shirts can be dressed down for a weekend lounge look.
To aid you in your hunt for the next white shirt, our team is spilling the beans on where they go shopping for their white shirts.
Mary-Ann Soh, HerWorld.com editor
When it comes to a good white shirt, Mary-Ann likes them structured, with details and a play of fabrics. For example, it could be a bold detail like a dip peplum hem or a big bow on the shirt, or a cotton shirt with organza sleeves.
One of her favourite go-to brands include Cos, which is known for their clean, minimalist designs and quality fabric. For more flamboyant designs, she likes to head to French brands Sandro or Maje.
Rachel Tan, fashion writer
For Rachel, unique designs are imperative. But she doesn’t have to look far for them – she just heads to Topshop.
She likes that the British label has a strong selection of basics, and that they are far from pedestrian. Rather, they come with little added details that jazz up the basic white shirt to give it more character and edge.
An added bonus? Topshop is an affordable high-street brand that have multiple stores in Singapore, so it’s easy for you to pop into a store to get a unique white shirt.
Jeanette Ejlersen, creative editor
To Jeanette, fit is her deciding factor, and she has found her favourites in Comme Des Garçons and Jil Sander. She likes that the white shirts from these two brands are a good fit for Asians and she doesn’t need to bring them to a tailor to alter the sleeves, shoulders, nor deal with general fit and sizing issues.
Hoe I Yune, features writer
I Yune prefers versatile white shirts that can be worn in both professional and informal settings. Whether it’s for a casual weekend get-together with friends, or to look put together and professional for work, she favours budget-friendly high-street labels with no particular preference for any.
She doesn’t shy away from shirts with whimsical prints, in fact, her current favourite is a short-sleeve piece from Mango that comes adorn with ice-cream prints on it.
