How to style the corporate kind of boring white shirt (without being boring)

Cláudia Diniz

It is the harsh reality ladies. January has come to it’s fair end so let’s present our proper goodbyes.

The first month of 2018 is pretty much done and February is up next, already right across the street, showing it’s seductive look and (hopefully) warmer days. Still and for what it is worth, January was a very frenetic month in terms of professional and personal affairs.

As a super packed month, I can not emphasize enough the fact of having 1 zillion meetings outside the office, plus the countless hours at the office, jumping from chair to chair in a desperate attempt to prevent root growth. Yes, was a very intensive momentum, was as always, everything happened as it should and I wouldn’t have it in any other way – for now

The thing is, I don’t like to take things on a very serious note, so I always try to take down a notch and always dress like my entire outfit was screaming “Why so serious” to people, do you get me?

Unfortunately, being a so called “influencer” has it’s advantages – and as everything in life, also it’s disadvantages – and I am often put to the test in terms of intelligence, perseverance and relevance.

I had arranged a super important meeting and I was not sure if I should focus on my style true identity or if should tame my anger for fashion expression in a sense of not knowing exactly the type of field I would be walking in to.

The question that came to my mind was: is there any piece that really reflects formality in a business environment? Yup, there was. The so traditional and uptied anti-flash white was on my radar, but I definitely wanted to avoid the gummy-board of directors kind of look. In order to accomplish exactly that, I just went for a messy and unfinished twist.

I chose a XL shirt, and honestly, I’ve just might say that you can would be thrilled if I said that you should check more often your boyfriend/brothers/husband’s closet because they have gold there – at least when it comes to tshirts. The larger and looser, the better. And why is that? I love the contrast between the clean and smooth touch of a fresh cotton shirt and a fine cashmere turtleneck sweater, because it immediately make it simpler and not so rigid. Plus, you can always play with the asymmetry by attaching the lower part of the shirt to the belt area and leaving the other loose.

Another myth revolves around the bottom part of the outfit and because twill is so much present in every multinational, I decided to use my cigarette jeans and just denied that exactly.

Are you rolling up your sleeves for the next upcoming month?

Well, you should do that in 3, 2, 1, NOW.
