When I look at my Pinterest account and my myriad of images on my own wall of inspiration, it’s covered with many images, but staring at it long enough means that common threads start to appear, like my obsession with legendary supermodels and my love of white shirts.

A beautiful white shirt is one of the greatest heroes of a common wardrobe. It’s an instant upgrade to the slouchiest pair of jeans, it’s the keen-eyed stare that says “I mean business” underneath a crisp business suit. Borrowed from your lover, it’s an homage to a night of passion, if it’s linen and wrinkled it speaks to a life on island time. The white shirt can says so many things without the wearer uttering a word, and my beloved supers said everything I’d love to say on the subject. I’ll just let them – with a touch of Chanel Iman, Uma Thurman and Linda Fiorentino, seen above – speak volumes of this timeless wardrobe essential.
