I’m sure several of you saw the Lucky Mag cover of Jessica Simpson. This picture is on one of our studio mood boards since the D&G Tuxedo shirt pictured (MSRP $245) has pin tucking detail very similar to our Portia Pintuck Blouse, and Portia is a much cheaper date than D&G.
Barbara Walters knows a goodthing; this octogenarian chose this white womens shirt as the profile pic for her twitter account.
Carolina Herrera’s style trademark is a white button-down womens shirt (collar usually popped up) tucked into a full skirt. The look is flattering and feminine. I love how she owns this look, it’s a great style statement.
We also have a picture of Kim Kardashian on a moodboard in our studio. In our picture she’s in a white womens shirt that is gaping open between the buttons, but she looks great in this white shirt tucked into skinny jeans, showing just how versatile a white shirt is.
