Whether you borrow his the next morning, pair it with a power suit or wear it to pickup, the PWS says: Look out bitches, I’m CEO of the boardroom, bedroom and playroom.
What makes a Perfect White Shirt?
• Well-placed buttons (unless you want to play peek-a-boob with strangers).
• Flattering fit. The Oxford’s origins are male, but it doesn’t have to be boxy. One with a little stretch will help you move freely.
• Quality fabric will last longer and won’t be see-through.
• Extra-long in the back so it stays tucked in. So long thong sightings!
Sounds like a tall order, but fear not Girlfriends, we found a few that look equally fierce with a pencil skirt or J Brand jeans.
Who me, iron? No need with Brooks Brothers’ Non-Iron Fitted Dress Shirt, $98 (see below).
