Fashion Friday: White Is The New Black

Nicole says: Here’s a question!  What is your favorite white shirt?  T-shirt, dress shirt, tank, etc.  I think white and denim is a classic look, but finding the right shirt can be tough.  So I’ll let you scour the internet for various options. 🙂

I say: To be honest, I have never had a classic white blouse — you know, the kind that Tim Gunn and Stacy London will say is a wardrobe staple?  Nope.  Never had one.  I love, however, a clean white T-shirt, and my latest wardrobe staple is a white tank that I wear under all my cardigans and shrugs.

For T-shirts, my all time favorite is the Banana Republic Timeless Tee.


It’s a nice weight — not too thick, not too thin, and it has JUST a hint of stretch.  They wash up well and don’t fade too much.  You can also get it in a V-neck.

I found this cute tank, also at Banana Republic, which I can’t find online at the moment.  It has a subtle embellishment around the neckline that adds just a little something special when worn under a cardigan.  Since I can’t find it online, and I’m wearing it at the moment, I’ll take a quick photo.  I’m not sure you can even see the embellishment, but for what it’s worth, here you go.


As for a crisp cotton blouse, I’m afraid I’m going to have to put that question out to the Internets.

What do YOU say? Do you have a favorite white shirt?  What kind is it?  Where did you get it?  Tell us all about it!
