Women’s white shirt | A status symbol

Like the jeans and sneakers, we all have white shirts in our wardrobes for school/work/occasions etc. Back in the era…were white shirts for women? The influences can be traced back to the menswear, white shirt stands for the symbol of wealth, distinction and a powerful emblem of sobriety and uniformity. All these masculine words could be more like describing nowadays women.

Evolved the menswear DNA, the white shirt could be a little classy, a little boyish even a little relax but stay classic in a feminine way.

“When in doubt, wear white shirts”
“The tailored white shirt is a classic because of its masculine elegance,” said Georgia Lazzaro.

白襯衫就像牛仔褲和波鞋一樣,返工返學總有幾件在衣櫥裡。最初的白襯衫是設計給女士的嗎?追溯由來其實是源自於男裝的,最初潔白莊嚴的白襯衫象徵著社會地位,專業和權力。

慢慢這些形容白襯衫的詞語不再是男士的專利了,卻保留了白襯衫的特質在女性身上。白襯衫變得更有個性,穿在不同場合既依然經典。
