To me, a crisp white shirt is one of the most important pieces in your wardrobe. A truly adaptable piece, you’d be crazy not to have a few in your wardrobe. But not just a piece of clothing that has connotations of effortless ‘day to night’ and ‘beach to bar’ outfits, because of Witchery’s longstanding commitment to the White Shirt Campaign it now means so much more than that – namely love, generosity and hope. Because of this, it’s an honour to be once again working with Witchery to promote this campaign, in the hope of finding an early detection test for Ovarian Cancer. So, if you want to get involved, buy a white shirt from witchery during April and 100% of the total proceeds from the sale go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. It couldn’t be more simple than that.
In the name of proving just how versatile the white shirt is, this year I decided to share with you a little hack I use when I want to take a staple up a notch – the shirt to bustier move.
Here’s How To: Shirt To Bustier
STEP 1. Go Oversized
Choose a shirt thats a little too big for you, which will give you more room for tying and knotting.
STEP 2. Button Up
Button the shirt up to your mid bust, leaving your arms out of it and the collar folded in at the back.
STEP 3. Wrap
Using the arms of the shirt, wrap them around the front and tie at the back.
STEP 4. Adjust
Fold and knot the top so it sits comfortably and won’t fall down.
