Nothing makes me want to rock a white shirt like an old photo of the ever-chic Jane Birkin, wearing different iterations with her favorite jeans. Some are super classic menswear styles, others way more romantic. Either way, I want them all!
This super frilly eyelet Mango top makes any pair of jeans more fun, and would work well as a party piece.
I’ve always loved Everlane’s Ruched Air Blouse, which provides the crispness of a classic button-down with the slight boho appeal of a peasant top.
This chic piece from Cos has a nice button-hiding placket that makes it a bit more polished than the usual.
Big pilgrim-y collars seem to be all the rage, and are easier to wear than you’d think. I would unbutton this and roll up the sleeves to make it a bit less prim (see Jane Birkin on the right). Or you can do the trendy thing and show off the collar coming out of a crewneck sweater. p.s. it’s also really cute in the leopard.
Nothing beats Grayson’s tissue thin classics, so why not get a white one to wear forever?
Here’s a pretty version from Cos with a simple camp-shirt shape and somehow un-fussy ruffles.
H&M’s button-down has a cool slouchy shoulder and extra long hem to give it a good boyfriend vibe.
The pleats and stand up collar here give off a crisp-yet-romantic feel.
J. Crew’s collarless number also has a turn-of-the-century menswear thing going on. Plus, it’s now 40% off with an extra 10% for good measure.
Faherty’s pintucked blouse is light and airy and just so pretty!
Here’s another ruffle collar shirt that is less exaggerated and has a romantic cuff to show off, too. And it’s also part of the big J. Crew sale!
This Eileen Fisher piece has a nice light gauzy feel.
This one has a good flow with pretty vintage details like pintucking and subtle ruffles.
