How to: Style a plain white shirt

With all the ever-changing trends and such, I think we often forget how practical and versatile plain white shirts are.  Think of them as a blank canvas.  White tops can styled any way you choose with the right accessories (aka. the paint to your canvas).  To show you, I used a plain white tank top and black shorts from eFoxcity as the base.

Sweet brights (left): Nothing screams summer like bright colours and feminine touches.  Mixing bold colours with a white shirt is a great way to make those colours really pop.  And since you want those colours to be the focus, accessories should stay minimal and more subtle.  Even though the weather's hot, it doesn't mean you can't wear layers.

Edgy neutrals (right):  Give this classic colour palette a twist by pairing the white top with some edgy accessories.  Since the palette is neutral here, accessories are the main attraction.  Have some fun with patterns too.  It's a great way to add some fun to a simple and classy monotone look.  Great for a day out or a night on the town.
