#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.

You know we love a good monogram, so Marieclaire St John’s customizable DRESSHIRT ($445) is a no-brainer.

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).
