The Crisp White Shirt October 12, 2008

Posted by bbbelinda in Uncategorized.

it’s an old standard—the crisp, white button-down shirt. “It has to be fitted, and it must be crisp and perfect at all times,” she says.

All too often, white shirts get worn once and linger in the ironing pile. So Stacy embarked on a wash-and-wear quest for the best white shirt. Brooks Brothers’ No-Iron Fitted White Shirt emerged as the winner ($89 at Brooks Brothers locations). In fact, Stacy wore hers to the show un-ironed and un-steamed! “This one came out of the dryer last night like this,” she says

Stacy says there are many great ways to incorporate a white shirt into your wardrobe. First up is a crisp way to incorporate color. “We have a great J. Crew cashmere sweater over that,” she says. “The reason we can do it over is the shirt is [that it’s] fitted, so there’s no bulk.”

Paired with a dark trouser jean and colorful accessories, the white shirt sheds its buttoned-up, serious stereotype. “It’s young, but it’s not too young,” Stacy says. “It’s more energetic.”

The next look is a tunic-style paired with a classic black pant. Since the shirt is fitted, Stacy says it will look great over a wide-leg pant.

“You can belt this at the waist if you’re a curvy girl or down at the hip, which I love,” she says. “A nice wide belt, by the way, really holds in that little tummy.”
