I used to love wearing a classic white shirt to work when I had a full time office job. Then I had kids and I thought the white shirt days were over for me. Too many buttons to bother with and too hard to keep clean. But in the spirit of rediscovering my style personality post children, I’m ready to get back into white shirt territory. There’s nothing a Napisan soak won’t fix!
The oversized shirt is conveniently on trend this autumn / winter so there is an abundance of glorious styles to choose from. I conducted my research and then I got the email – Hello Country Road Spend n Save!! I love the Poplin Shirt by Country Road as it’s still a little bit fitted but has good length so can be worn tucked in or loose and long. Here are three casual, practical ways to wear a white shirt beyond the office!
Outfit 1: With a skirt
Outfit 2: With jeans
Outfit 3: With joggers!!
I’m giving the sport luxe style a go here…. It’s fun to contrast the crisp structure of the shirt with the soft joggers.

Now what about the ironing I hear you ask. Well I’m getting rather adept at shaking and flapping most of the wrinkles out of my clothes when I get them out of the washing machine (did you know about this trick?) and then I hang shirts on a hanger on the line. A quick iron is all that is required and with the next season of Game of Thrones coming out soon, I will be happy to multi-task the ironing with TV time.
So what are your thoughts on wearing white shirts casually? Would you wear a white shirt with joggers?
