My wardrobe is decidedly filled with neutrals– black, white, navy, camel, and a bit of grey. I do wear color, but on the day to day, I prefer neutrals accented with great accessories. One of my wardrobe staples is white shirts. I own an embarrassing number of them in various incarnations. I love wearing a tuxedo style button down with great jewelry for evening. In fact, while I was in Los Angeles for Legends of La Cienega last week, I wore this Claridge + King Pique Popover in the day and for that evening’s festivities, I changed into the white Tibi Off the Shoulder Tunic pictured above. I loved how easy and effortless it felt and realized that my shoulders might be my favorite asset! It’s a great way to show a little skin when you’re modest like I am. I love the relaxed fit of the tunic and the pretty ties at the sleeves. I have a feeling I will be wearing this top quite a bit this summer and for years to come. I’m even contemplating buying it in black now.

I paired my top with a great pair of black pants from A Bientot, a pair of AERIN Python Sandals, the same Gucci Soho Disco Bag pictured here (so versatile– I love this bag!), and I finished the look off with plain gold hoop earrings, a great turquoise cabochon ring, and a gold cuff from A Bientot. I have pulled together a similar look below, using a few different pieces.

The great thing about a white shirt is that it goes with absolutely everything! This got me thinking about how I would wear the same top for daytime and I think it would look great with blue jeans or white jeans as I’ve pictured here. You could pair it with gold or tan flat sandals and a tan leather bag or straw tote and it would look fantastic.  How would you wear this top? Do you prefer the evening or the daytime look?
