Pair the white shirt with a fitted high waist pencil skirt to get this sexy but formal look.

Keep jewelry minimal and finish off with a pair of pointed courts in any color of your choice. This look can be worn in the office, to attend meetings and formal lunch dates. Adding extreme accessories will allow you to pull it off for an evening event. The skirt in this look is from the Vonne Couture’s “Tambour Africain” 2013 collection.

Heavy bangles, strappy white shoes and a satin pair of black pants jazz up this simple look. You can wear this look to evening events and is a great option for those who want a different look for a cocktail party.

For a fun and warm look, wear a pair of comfy shorts and put on a bright colored cardigan or blazer. Match this look with a pair of your favorite comfy shoes and you’re ready to hit the park, mall or casual lunch date with friends.

Overalls or a simple fitted dress transform this shirt to a cool pinafore-esque attire. Make it cooler by adding a pair of converse sneakers. But if you’re a true fashionista, you’d want to spice it up with maybe one major accessory such as a hair clip, bracelet or a beaded necklace. A perfect look for those in the creative industries.

For a night out in your favorite white shirt, loosen the first few and last buttons and tie the bottom of the shirt up. With your sexiest pair of leggings, and hot sandals, this outfit is perfect for those wanting to sizzle in the club or bar without having to show too much flesh. Adding an embellished waistcoat and red lip adds even more drama. The pants in this look is from Vonne Couture’s “Tambour Africain” 2013 collection.

      this is the typical naija mentality that drives me up the wall….stylists can also do casual every day styling as well as red carpet etc…..a stylist’s job is to put pieces together in a stylish way and accessorize properly.

      having said that, i’m not too impressed with her accessories. Not a totally polished presentation.

    There is so much more you can do with a white shirt, you can pair with skinny jeans and a leather Jacket. Also the shirt looks quite ill fitting especially the arms, a classic white shirt should be tailored to your body. This should help with styling.

    Not everyone is a “fashionista” so this feature has its benefits. I enjoyed it and I know I will try the shirt and dress combo as I would never have thought to try it. I don’t think the idea here is to replicate everything she has done, but it is supposed to give you an idea of how to wear yours. So look, and keep the criticism to a minimum especially if it is not constructive.. What are we supposed to make of the fact that you find it “boring”? and oooh I love her legs. She has a runner’s leg.. no?

    Classic white shirt? Laughs. It’s obvious she doesn’t know what that is. This is more like a white blouse. It’s got puffy sleeves, free flowing body, a high neck and flat pleats.

    That said I like the one with the pencil skirt.

    Not too bad, but a white shirt can definitely be more versatile than this
