Things to do with the great white shirt

Every fashion guru worth his/her salt will emphasize the importance of a good white shirt as a wardrobe essential.

After all, it's a seasonless staple, a garment that suits all body types. You can dress it up or dress it down, as the occasion demands. You can wear it to work or to a party, if you team it with the right accessories. Still, finding the right shirt for office is only work half done. You need to pair it up with stylish accessories if you want to get your corporate look right. From picking the right shirt to jazzing it up, here's the dope.

Choosing the right shirt
- A shirt with a classically-shaped collar that has a good neckline will frame your face well.
- The fabric should be durable and of good quality. Shirts made of 100% cotton have a crisper, sharper look.
- Other areas you need to pay attention to are the arm-holes and sleeve-head, which need to be well-cut, defined and comfortable.
- Be careful of the colour of your shirt. White is never just 'white'. With ice-white, sharp and bright, to off-white, the colour varies. Avoid grayish shades; they can make your skin look dull and sallow.
- A shirt will look great on you if it fits and flatters your shape. If it sits too tight, it won't look appropriate (over-emphasised love handles and boobies are a no-no at most office settings) and you might end up spending your energy on making sure it sits perfectly, instead of focusing on your work.

Quick fixes for your white shirt
- While wearing a white shirt, always remember to wear a flesh-toned bra that doesn't show underneath.
- Whenever you sport a shirt, there are chances of a peek-a-boo. This usually happens when there is a gap between two buttons. To fix this, either wear a camisole underneath your shirt or cover it up with a chunky necklace. A few safety pins tucked between the buttons can also resolve the issue temporarily.
