How To Look Chic On A Budget : The Perfect White Shirt

how to look chic on a budget, white shirt

A white shirt is a ulimate wardrobe staple in my book. It can be worn any season, dressed up, or down, it’s the perfect piece for all types of occasions.

I used to only have one white shirt in my wardrobe which I loved, it’s a linen number from Topshop which I got about four years ago now, but it’s a bit of a weird cut meaning the front and back are split which always meant tucking it in was a bit of a pain.

I’ve been looking for a replacement for a little while but struggled to find anything, well that was until I got this little number from H&M.

It was something ridiculous like £8.99, and I must admit when I ordered it, I was thinking ‘is this going to arrive and be like one my school shirts?’

Well to my surprise, I love it and it’s the perfect white shirt.

It’s cotton and is great quality, it’s oversized but not ridiculous like you’ve had to borrow your dad’s shirt for some reason, it sits well, tucks in nicely and looks so chic!

I’ve been wearing it with straight jeans and sandals, also with shorts, and with midi skirts too and well anything in my wardrobe, it’s so versatile!

I got my usual size which is a size 8 and it’s a little oversized but not too much, so I’d stick to your usual size as I do think white shirts look best when a little oversized.

But I’m SO impressed and I’m sure this white shirt will be a wardrobe staple of mine for a long time.

I’d love to know if you have a white shirt in your wardrobe? Or will you be picking this one up?
