The White Shirt

Posted by

It’s a perennial fashion favorite, a classic that–while tweaked season after season–is never ever abandoned altogether. It’s the white button-down shirt. At C + K we have all sorts of variations on the theme, and even a series we call The Great White Shirt with–count them nine incarnations–(going on ten shortly).

Perpetual pinners, we pulled some fetching Pinterest pics to inspire ways you can style that essential wardrobe staple. And for those who collect our GWSs we have a sneak preview of The Striped Ribbon Trimmed GWS set to break on the site in early February 2016.

These pics remind us of our first GWS, the No. 1 (classic front). Versatile and easy to wear in myriad ways.

Want the look of a white shirt that's shorter in the front, longer in the back? Try our Long Tail Shirt.

Carmen Diaz wears a linen button-down shirt, close to our GWS, No. 5 (white linen). Loving the golden bangles.

This piece looks like a cross between two styles of ours... GWS No. 7 (a tuxedo style shirt with pleat front) and GWS No. 3 with a classic front and French cuffs. Love the ease and casual way it's styled.

Like two pockets? Try our GWS No. 4 with a covered front (button) placket and two front pockets.

Like a boyfriend-style, oversized look? Try the His is Hers Original Shirt

And Lesli wears our new Striped Ribbon Trimmed GWS with a wide striped ribbon sewn down the back of the collar and a narrow, single-stripe ribbon sewn on each cuff's placket.

Goodnight Gorgeous!

With temperatures dropping as December descends, we've got plenty of soft flannel pajama separates at the ready! Why not mix and match your favorite patterns and treat yourself or give the gift of cozy sleep and comfort to another this holiday season.While as you might know, our His is Hers® Flannel Shirt does double-duty as [...]

Wise Words

For years, long before we pinned wise words spoken by some enlightened someone, I jotted those inspiring words uttered by another–past or present– in a quote journal. Today, as technology gives us a digital journal of sorts (Pinterest), I've combed the site to share a few quotes I find intriguing. At least for this moment in [...]
