The classic white shirt has undergone something of a transformation this season. Take this deconstructed offering from House of Sunny’s latest collection as prime example. It may be cut from the usual crisp cotton but its asymmetric wrap-over construction and slashed oversized sleeves make for an architectural silhouette that could never be described as plain or predictable. Wear it as workwear or as part of a ‘jeans and a nice top’ combo to experience first-hand how minimalism can be just as effective as all-out maximalism.

Should you be on the lookout for a shirt with all the drama of an evening dress but the comfort and wearability of a classic button-up, call off the search. This one from British brand Erdem has it all. Tailored from crisp white cotton poplin for a relaxed fit, it features voluminous puffed sleeves and a romantic, inky blue floral print inspired by botanical Victorian wallpaper, pairing effortlessly with jeans, its matching skirt or virtually anything for that matter.
Proof that a white shirt needn’t be plain and predictable, this one by cult Scandinavian designer and Liberty newcomer Cecilie Bahnsen fuses the artistry of couture with the comfort of ready-to-wear. Full of whimsy, drama and everyday wearability, it promises to amp up your wardrobe this spring/summer. Cut from crisp cotton for an architectural silhouette, this shirt features an asymmetric peplum-hem, dropped shoulders and bow embellished blouson sleeves that capture the charm and romance of fashions from bygone years. Our advice? To keep things casual, couple with a wide-legged pair of jeans – the cut of the season. And on more formal occasions, wear some suit trousers and your favourite statement jewellery to reach the dizzy heights of sartorial elegance.Shop the shirt
