The next pick on our Fall Fashion Fabric Guide is perhaps our favorite – yep, we’re talking about the white collared shirt!  Stock up, as this single garment is perhaps the most important staple, and most versatile, for any closet.  The white collared shirt is a timeless classic for its ability to complement any style.

Feeling empowered?  Pair with this year’s menswear looks, choosing a traditional look or adding a sexy twist.

Feeling flirty and feminine?   Take a cue from Carolina Herrera herself and her signature look by pairing a white blouse with a full skirt.

Not a fashion risk-taker?  A blouse can also tone down any bold trend pieces, so you still look conservative, but current.

Any hairspray, makeup and perfume should be applied before putting on a dress shirt, as these are the biggest culprits that contribute to yellowing and stains.


  • Cleaning these shirts are not as simple as their appearance.  It is recommended that white collared shirts are not placed in the dryer, or if so, for a very minimal amount to of time on low heat.
  • Avoid keeping in hamper too long, as sweat and oils can start to seep in and help premature yellowing.
  • Shirts should be ironed when slightly damp.
