How To Style a Collared Shirt

I have several collared shirts in my closet–and I can honestly tell you I haven’t used them in years. A couple of days ago I took them out and decided to throw together some outfits based on some looks I saw recently and fell in love with.  Take a look at the photos for some cool looks using a collared shirt.

Rihanna

Lets face it, RiRi looks good in everything.  However, the last thing I would have imagined her to wear is a proper looking collared shirt, BUT she pulls it off!  She edges up the collared shirt (love that she rolled up sleeves to make it less preppy) with some ripped jeans, sexy stilettos, and red lips.  This is a perfect night out look or even a date!! Effortlessly sexy? Check.

Jessica Alba

I love Jessica Alba–she’s been a fave of my since her days on Dark Angel.  She also has amazing style!  She took a striped collared shirt, tucked it in some high-waisted white trousers and paired it with nude wedges.  This is a great work or school look–you look chic, put together and very stylish.

Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo always looks so chic and this outfit does not disappoint.  She took a simple white collared shirt and made it look less done up knotting the bottom, and paired it with some fun green and black printed shorts.  A simple white woven belt and some cheetah print flats take this white collared shirt and make it a fun, summery, casual day look.  It’s still sexy but in a very understated way.
