8 Cool New Takes On The Classic White Shirt

Like a good pair of jeans, or a tried-and-true LBD, a white shirt is a wardrobe-must-have, no matter what your personal style. Whether dressed up or down, the classic button down is always relevant, unaffected by seasons or trends. This season though, designers are approaching the white shirt with a more contemporary mindset. Think: funky sleeves, front ties, and *gasp* feisty pops of colour. Celebrate this iconic closet staple with this season’s not-so-classic takes on the classic white shirt. 
The Pleated Collar
Leave it to COS to create the perfect minimalist white shirt, infused with just the right amount of unexpected design. An A-line silhouette and round collar with irregular pleats looks clean and fresh, and it’s just the thing we want to add to our workwear uniform. Shirt With Pleated Collar, $89 USD
Off-the-shoulder
A front tie freshens up the now everywhere off-the-shoulder top for fall. 
Off-the-shoulder Blouse, $35
 Party In the Back
Technically speaking, the oversized fit of this shirt makes it almost like a dress (although the peekaboo bow detailing make wearing bottoms a necessity). And this probably isn’t the type of shirt you wear to work, but we love its pretty-meets-edgy feel, which is a collab between Hello Kitty and streetwear brand Lazy Oaf. Lazy Oaf X Hello Kitty Shirt With Bow Back, $147
Unconventional Bodysuit
Ensure your shirt tuck stays perfectly in place with this white shirt-meets-bodysuit. Stretch Perfect Bodysuit, $99
(Subtle) Bell Sleeves
A minimalist silhouette gets a romantic touch with soft bell sleeves accented with long bow ties that give a long, lean look to this classic white shirt. Bell Sleeve Shirt $70
 The Multi-Tasker
Cool design details such as a portrait collar, wide, pleated sleeves and super-size cuffs mean you can style this shirt a multitude of ways. Wear it slightly askew to bare some shoulder, or roll up your sleeves to show off those mega cuffs. Blouse H1404, $108
The Statement Sleeve
Fashion-forward details in the sleeves, such as major volume up top and smocked elastic panels on the bottom, make this top look like it’s straight from the runway (see the street style favourite by buzzy designer Jacquemus). Petersyn Heidi Top, $382
Black-Trimmed
Subtle black piping give this shirt a carefree, pyjama-esque vibe, lending a less structured (but super chic) feel to the classic staple. Babaton RENA Shirt, $98
