#TBT: Supermodels’ White Button-Downs
When Steven Meisel shot this supermodel gang for Vogue Italia in the ‘90s, eye-catching attire was absolutely not needed. Rather than compete with the beauty of Christy, Amber, Linda, Naomi, et al, a plain white oxford complimented that flawless bone structure. The result was an incredibly sexy image that was heavy on the bedroom vibes.
Over two decades later, a simple white button-down shirt is still a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Whether you pair it with boyfriend jeans, classic cigarette dress pants, or even a ball gown skirt, you’ll inevitably wear it time and time again. Even better, many designers are updating this timeless silhouette with mild alterations. Here are our top picks:
Better than stealing from your actual lover, Frame Le Boyfriend Cotton Oxford Shirt ($180) is cut for a woman’s body while still offering the generous fit you covet from their shirts.
The Thomas Mason for J. Crew Strech Shirt ($158) is about as classic as classic can get.
The modern silhouette paired with the side-ties adds a contemporary twist to the Tibi Oxford Dolman Tie Shirt ($275).
All play, zero business: T by Alexander Wang Cotton Oxford Crop Shirt ($250).
Show off your Pilates-whittled waist in the Tome Pique Gathered Waist Shirt ($595).
