Investing in a versatile white shirt can be an easy way for a woman to look great. A wardrobe staple. However simple a white shirt may seem, it is one of the most challenging designs to perfect.

When introduced to in-grid, a British fashion brand, I was struck by the description:

We make white shirts. For women. Made in England.

The standard white collared shirts are converted into beautifully cut blouses, mostly without collars, to signify a femininity. The variations of these cotton pieces not only lie in the different cuts of short sleeves and long sleeves, but also in the details such as curved hems, hidden buttons, and quirky slits.

Transformation of the minimalist white shirt has made the basic item more versatile and diverse. I especially enjoy the transparency overlays of some of the shirts; they give a sense of elegant provocation.
