The white shirt is the same as elegance, exclusivity and classy. If you look up the meaning of the SHIRT is " A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body. Originally an undergarment worn exclusively by men". The white shirt is an icon and a "must" part in a suit of men. Also the tailoring industry was so important and a essential for high-class men for ages.
However the culture changes everyday and now you could find the shirt like this (see the picture below, the model is wearing a shirt by Guiëm)
Along the history there were some women that started to change the meaning of wearing a shirt as a symbol of independence and to rise the power of women in the real life. One of them was Coco Chanel in 1920 that made popular this cloth making it sexy and attractive. After this years ladies started to borrow the shirts of their fathers to combine with jeans but only as casual and informal outfits.
In 1952 showed up the "Bettina" by Givenchy with a classy touch and after the "shirt" disappeared for some years until 70´s when it became popular again thank to the films and some designers of that years.
Does not matter what social class you come from or if you want to look casual or elegant... the white shirt is always in and is an icon inside fashion. Carolina Herrera has made a line called "The white shirt" as a tribute to this icon in the history of women that means freedom.
Have you hear about anything about "oversize" trend? Is the perfect time to use the "shirt" of your boyfriend and combine what you like the most. We love that trend and encourage all the women to use men clothing in a sexy way.
