Spring Fashion Trend Alert: The White Shirt

There is nothing more classic than a simple white shirt. Every fashionista needs at least one, as it is a wardrobe staple. This Spring trend has been taking over the runways as well as online, as style bloggers showcase the sought-after trend.  

While white seems plain to most, all it takes is minor detailing or embellishments to turn the look around completely. This trend can come in a variation of styles. They can vary by cut, fabric choice, and also design detail. 

The white shirt trend can be mixed and matched for day and night. You can find a slim silhouette to tuck into your trousers for work. You could go cropped or quarter sleeve. It could also be styled with fringe details and flared jeans to get a 70’s vibe; another Spring Trend. Style maven, Shateria Moragne (below), keeps it sexy but classy. 

This look can also be dressed up or down based on special occasions. We love an easy to layer shirt. You can go tuxedo style for those work nights out, or fun and flirty. We also can’t forget about those best for vacation shirts. 

Quality is everything when selecting that perfect shirt. It can be styled with many different looks just in a week. Some of our favorite bloggers are rocking the look. Style Pantry’s own, Folake Huntoon (below), knows how to turn any look around. Accessorizing is key!
