New Year, New You: 5 Ways to Re-style Your Classic White ShirtThe Christmas and New Year period can be an exhausting time of year – not least when we're having to decide what to wear to that rather swish drinks party, or for smart-casual brunch with the ladies, or to that super formal family do. Our wardrobes (like our fridges) have seen fresher days... But, never fear! Because we're about to show you how to re-style your best-loved old classic: The White Shirt. It's been previously established at The Shirt Company that the white button down shirt is a fashion staple. And just we still stand by our declarations that red lippie will always be beautiful and that we'll never stop loving Chanel handbags – we unflinchingly stand by our white button down is a fashion must-have pronouncement. Trends come and go, but the versatility of the classic white button-down is perpetual. It has the benefits of a blank slate and can be dressed down or dressed up; it can be knotted or tucked into our favorite pair of jeans; styled with a pair of relaxed sneakers; paired with a voluminous skirt; need we say more? Here are The Shirt Company's favourite five ways to wear our white button downs at this time of year. Try one, try them all!

Both items are two of our closet's big guns, and together, they look so fresh and so clean. It's also really quite nice to ditch that gown after New Year's Eve!
With Sneakers [caption id="attachment_2289" align="aligncenter" width="518"] Image via New York Gazelle[/caption] For a sporty look, throw on the crisp button-down and reach for a pair of comfy sneaks and/or a jaunty baseball cap – looking chic has never been so effortless!
Menswear Inspired [caption id="attachment_2291" align="aligncenter" width="531"] Image via WhoWhatWear[/caption] How to look effortless, cool and yet put together? Think menswear. Try this super gorgeous preppy look for street style inspired by men’s fashion – patent loafers, a trouser suit (but you can mix and match, too), a doctor's bag, and – of course – a white button down!
With your Christmas Party Dress [caption id="attachment_2292" align="aligncenter" width="549"] Image via Stylecaster[/caption] Guess what, dresses don’t have to be a base layer: Make a sleeveless dress work for you during the cooler months by layering your white button down underneath it. If it's extra chilly outside, you can even wear with jeans!
Monochrome with a statement *ZING* [caption id="attachment_2293" align="aligncenter" width="545"] Image via Pinterest[/caption] Black and white never feels same-old, same-old when you add a shot of bright colour, such as a long, red winter coat. Also, any bright colour goes with monochrome as a statement piece, so have fun experimenting! Shop luxury essentials for all styles at The Shirt Company.
