5 Ways to Style a White Collared Shirt

Header_White Collared ShirtToday Kelli Murray is back to share 5 ways to style a white collared shirt. It can be so fun to take a basic piece from your wardrobe and find new and pretty ways to style it!A_FINALSimple top? Why not have a little fun on the bottom!?  I am loving all of the printed bottoms I am seeing out in the market right now. Are you!?  Floral, ikat, polka dots…I'm loving them all.  Weather you love a bold pattern with lots of color, or you lean toward a more muted and understated look, there is bound to be a style for you.  A simple white collared shirt is the perfect match to your busy bottoms!  I paired my "crazy pants" with a classic black heel, a coordinating bag, gold jewelry and my favorite sunglasses.B_FINALA sleeveless collared shirt can quickly become elegant by pairing it with a statement collar necklace and a dainty skirt.  I wanted to keep this look classic and refined, so I added simple black accessories.  This is something I would wear to the theatre or on a date night somewhere special!C_FINALWhen masculine meets feminine, it's almost always a good thing! (*almost always!) One of my favorite ways to style a collared shirt is with a blazer. To up-play the "masculine" I wore a peach scarf bowtie and felt boater hat. My blousey polka dot shorts are what kept me feeling feminine!  This fun and playful look would be good for almost any celebratory occasion (aside from a wedding probably)! More like a graduation or a birthday party! D_FINALSo if you saw me on the street tomorrow, this is probably what you would see me in! I love comfort (who doesn't, right?) and mixing different textures and fabrics in what I wear.  The beauty of a white collared blouse is that it can morph to suite almost any look, day or night.  For running errands or buzzing around town, I love a good cutoff denim short and textured cardi that I can throw on and off depending on the weather. And loafers….they are the new heel right? I am brainwashing myself to believe that because my feet have been singing their praises. haha.E_FINALI had to sneak my little lady into this one! My daughter Rylee is in fact the queen of boho in my little world.  Now if only she had hair to braid! *Sigh. One day!  I know it seems odd to mix a collar with a bohemian vibe, but I thought it worked here.  If you want to layer a collared shirt under a dress, a good rule of thumb is to make sure your dress is somewhat structured and has a high neckline.  That way, you're collar almost seems part of your dress, or at least compliments it. My embroidered mini dress and platform flats did just the trick! 


(And in case you were wondering, that faint purple hue in my hair is the last of what remains of my purple hair experiment with my sister!)


Thanks so much Kelli, we love all these cute styling ideas! xo. elsie and emma
