9 Stunning Ways to Style a White Shirt, Inspired by Bollywood Celebrities

by Naina 12 Dec 2023

Bollywood inspired clothes for women

 

We always say that a humble white shirt may be the single most versatile piece in your closet, and time and again we see it being styled in new and creative ways that blows us away. It’s the perfect addition to every capsule wardrobe – its tailored look makes it appear dressy, and its simplicity lends to its versatility. Dress it up or down – it works for almost every occasion. It’s no wonder that our collection of white shirts has been immensely popular within our #ShayeTribe – and the love we’ve received for it has inspired us to create white shirts for women in a variety of styles and silhouettes – so you can find one that you love!

We already know that it makes for great formal workwear – pair it with a pencil skirt or trousers and you’re ready to hustle. But we’re bringing you some fun style inspiration from your favourite bollywood divas for the white satin shirt, so you can elevate your everyday:

 

1. With Distressed White Denims

Priyanka chopra

As seen here on our beloved PC, the international superstar known for her bold and iconic fashion choices, a white button down shirt paired with distressed white skinnies, nude heels and a handbag. This white on white look yells edgy chic, and we’ve here for it. We love the little embroidery detail on the shirt too. You can shop our embroidered white shirt here.

2. As a Shrug

The incredible Sara Ali Khan nails her airport look in a white tank top,  adorable cutoff shorts and a white button down shirt as a shrug. We also love Kareena Kapoor Khan AKA Bebo’s look – white tank, jeans and a white shirt as a shrug paired with those bold black wayfarers is the perfect effortless, actress off-duty look! When it comes to fashion, Bebo can do no wrong!

3. With a Corset or Bustier

One way to elevate your white shirt and jeans outfit is to wear it with a corset or bustier on top, as seen here on the ethereal Deepika Padukone and Jahnvi Kapoor. Deepika’s black bustier gives it a contrast that makes it stand out and Jahnvi’s white on white look makes it seem more subtle and preppy. It’s stylish, bold and almost slightly risqué – exactly what you’re going for if you want to make a statement. This is a great look to wear for dinner and drinks with your girls or a lunch date with your boo.

4. With a Mini Skirt

The perfect partner to your mini skirt, the white collar shirt will make sure you look dressed up while letting the skirt shine. We see so many of our favourites actresses sporting this look – and here we see the beautiful Katrina Kaif and the upcoming fashion it-girl Ananya Pandey absolutely killing it! This look is edgy, stylish and perfect for house parties, a brunch date or a vacation look. You can check out our collection of skirts online at Shaye.

5. With a Sari

We love the blend of Indian ethnic with a crisp white shirt and what’s more Indian than a beautiful sari? This combination is edgy, daring and gives your saree a modern spin! Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s look is just so cool and fashion forward, and makes such a style statement.

6. With a lehenga Skirt

On that indo-western love note, we absolutely love pairing the white shirt with a gorgeous Indian lehenga. This fusion outfit is bold, edgy and perfect for a cocktail sangeet event or a mehendi function. Karisma Kapoor rocks a sleeveless white with a blue brocade pleated skirt and wait for it… white sneakers! LOVE it. Never missing the mark, Aditi Rao Hydari absolutely slays in a white shirt tied up at the waist with a purple lehenga inspired skirt and gorgeous statement earrings. Our cropped white shirt is ideal for this look.

7. As a Beach Cover Up

Katrina Kaif shows us how it’s done! A white button down shirt is the perfect swimsuit cover up! Simply throw it on unbuttoned over your swimsuit after your swim (you can also button up a few buttons if you prefer) and you can lounge around comfortably while looking so chic.

8. With a Statement Skirt

The amazing thing about a white shirt is that it goes with everything, while taking away nothing from what it’s being paired with. Which is why it’s great to pair with your statement bottoms – the whole look is elevated without clashing. Whether it’s Deepu’s charming vintage skirt and black heels – a look that’s more formal or Sonam’s silver metallic skirt and shoes with a lower neckline and a stunning necklace to go with it – a look that’s more laid back and chill, a white shirt work perfectly in both cases.

9. To ‘Dress’ Up your Jeans or Shorts

One way to elevate your everyday style is to pair a beautiful white shirt over your basic jeans or shorts. It looks effortlessly chic and gives you a lot of room to play and accessories if you like. Sonam’s look with an oversized white shirt, blue jeans and statement black flats with that bold plum lip is perfect for an evening out with friends. Malaika Arora keeps it cool in her white shirt paired with shorts and gold brogue shoes – a look that’s perfect for a holiday or day out with friends.
