Personal Style | Fab Werkwear Series: The Classic White Shirt & Linkup

Hello Beauties!

I am so excited about this month's workwear series!  I shared what inspired me to do this series in this post and from the positive feedback I have received online, I know that this will be inspirational for us all.  I encourage all of you to share your looks by linking up here each Monday and/or sharing through social media using the hashtag, #fabwerkwear.  This week's challenge is the classic white shirt.

The funny thing about the classic white shirt is that so many different companies are putting their own spin on them.  I picked up this white shirt last summer from Ann Taylor and immediately fell in love with the sequin feature that apparently didn't photograph.  It's light enough to wear during the summer yet easily able to be layered for cooler months.

Style Tip:  The classic white shirt is definitely a staple for your closet.  They sell them at affordable stores such as Walmart and Target to high end retailers.  You can even thrift them, but be careful of yellow stains under the arms.  There are so many ways that you can style a white button up shirt from wearing them alone, with a statement necklace underneath, with suit, under a sweater, etc.  To see more for this style staple, be sure to follow my new Fab Workwear Pinterest board.

For today's look, I opted to wear it with this unintentional suit.  I found these fabulous wide leg pants on Simply Be's clearance section last year.  I loved the shape from the moment I put them on.  A few weeks ago, I found the blazer on clearance on Target's website.  Although the colors looked similar, I wasn't sure if they would match up in person.  The moment the blazer arrived, I paired them side by side and we had a pretty good match!  The best part is that this unintentional suit was under $50.
