10 of the best classic white shirts (starting at $15)

Dress it up or dress it down, a crisp white shirt is a timeless classic and must-have item in any girl's wardrobe.

5 tips for buying the perfect white shirt

  • Choose fabrics with a little bit of stretch (lycra or spandex). This combo will ensure your white shirt has both structure and movement.
  • Look for quality buttons: these small details will make even an inexpensive white shirt look expensive.
  • The body of the white shirt should follow your natural curves and contours without tugging, gaping or pulling. Pay attention to the bust, back and shoulder areas, they are often where unwanted stretching and buckling occurs.
  • Consider the cut. If you have a large bust, look for white shirts with front darts, if you are petite, back darts will help streamline the fit. Tall? Make sure you take sleeve and body length into consideration.
  • A white shirt always looks best when it’s fresh and crisp. If you’re not the type to dry clean or iron, invest in wrinkle free, non-iron white shirts. While they might be more expensive upfront, down the road you will save on professional steaming and cleaning.
