Apart from diamonds, consider classic white button-downs a girl’s best friend. Nothing else in your closet is as timeless or as necessary as a white shirt. Whether you decide to wear it casually with ripped jeans or with sharp trousers for the office, its tailored shape instantly adds elegance to any look. That said, update your wardrobe with newer and fresher takes on this tried-and-true essential.
