One shirt, two styles: party glam and office chic

If yesterday you found that wearing the same piece of clothing in totally opposing contexts would clash with the clearly cut principles of style, today times have rather changed. Designers and stylists have made these changes possible to offer us great diversity, full and efficient use of each and everyone’s wardrobe.

The simple white shirt (ok, ours is golden-collared; our choice aimed at an even more dramatic effect, but the difference does not lie in this particular detail) can be the focal point helping you to achieve strikingly new outfits to match completely different occasions. Whoever has it in their wardrobe can mix it in as many ways as styles are known or not known yet.

Adorned with most brash accessories, the white shirt can be the optimal dosage to balance the strong impact of a party glamour getup.

On the other hand, it can just as well make the most, in a subtle way, of a monochromatic jacket fit for office or a negotiation meeting.

PS: And yes, gold is still in. And, basically, anything with a metallic tinge which glitters as far as the eye can see is still in. For a full hip effect, you may insert such clothing items in the office outfit as well. In a balanced dosage of brashness, it is true. Anyways, let’s dare rather than be a bore.
