White shirts have been worked and reworked this season with volume, structure and detail to elevate this wardrobe classic from layering tool to the focal point to build an outfit around. The key: keep the focus on the shirt with the rest of your outfit pared back and always, always wear a nude – not white – bra.

3 of the best: reworked white shirts
1. Pleats, Reiss
Wear buttoned-up to keep the focus on the pleated front; idea for smaller busts.
2. Tie neck, H&M
Tie in a bow at neckline for smaller busts and pear shapes – the neck detail will draw the eye away from wider hips. Wear the tie as pictured for strawberry and apple shapes; breaking up a wide torso and lengthening the body with the black tie elongating.
3. Deep cuffs, Cos
Long cuffs will lengthen the arms. Wear with cigarette pants for a smarter look.
