White Shirt Mania 白襯衫控

Can’t remember since when I start this obsession with white shirt!

Maybe it all starts from those days when I had to travel big time. I love traveling light and thus something that could help me be versatile in all occasions becomes my first choice naturally. As white shirt yellows quickly, it becomes a habit to keep looking for replacements and collect them. Thanks to its easy-to-add-on nature just like white T-Shirt, fashion brands love to keep white shirt as collection essential. There are always tons of choices for white shirt across brands- from the perpetual plain, simple style, to the seasonal fashion twists to the avant-garde design. One can never get bored upon shopping white shirts!

不記得是從何時開始, 我上了白襯衫的癮!

也許是從那段我當空中飛人的歲月開始的吧. 那段時間, 每個月至少得出兩趟差, 要不去巴黎採購, 要不在亞洲巡店開會. 我習慣輕裝簡行, 因此一件能幫我搞定各種場合需求, 搭配性極強的白襯衫, 自然就成為我的首選. 也因為白襯衫容易變黃, 所以, 不知不覺我養成了只要看到有趣的白襯衫一定下手的習慣. 那種癮頭就像是古代皇帝, 雖然妻妾成千, 卻不斷想要壯大後宮的行為. 也幸虧白襯衫就像白T恤, 有可塑性極強的特性, 所以自然成為各大品牌每季必備的產品. 從經典的基本款, 到每季的流行樣式, 到一些前衛品牌宣揚個性主張的獨特設計, 白襯衫的選擇總是讓你眼花撩亂, 永遠會有驚喜的發現.

What I love the most about white shirt is that you can’t go wrong with it. The fabric of a white shirt has its personality already- cotton is soft, comfortable and omnipresent; linen is light and chilled; silk gives elegant touch; poly-cotton (65% cotton, 35% polyester) and polyester are with good structure. Its versatility comes from what you wear with it- a sharp trouser, a bold and  colorful skirt or a 70s-inspired bohemian denim jeans. It shows different attitude depending on whether you tuck it in, let it hang loose or tie it with knots. Moreover, a white shirt also brightens complexion by reflecting light, which makes it an easy “age-defying” solution to all ages.

白襯衫最酷的一點, 就是你很難穿著它出錯. 不同材質的白襯衫, 本身已具不同的個性. 比方說, 全棉的柔軟舒適, 能迎合所有樣式; 全麻質地輕盈, 既休閒又有文青感; 絲質優雅; 棉和聚酯纖維混紡硬挺, 不易起皺. 白襯衫造型多變, 搭什麼都行. 你可以搭配俐落的褲裝, 款式鮮豔大膽的裙裝, 或70年代波希米亞風的流蘇牛仔褲. 而你怎麼穿這件白襯衫, 塞不塞進褲頭, 扣幾顆扣子, 在腰部打個結, 都會展現截然不同的時尚態度. 另外, 最酷的一點就是, 白襯衫是最便宜的打光神器. 不同的布料有不同的反光效果, 因此, 不同年齡的人穿它都能顯得容光煥發.

Everyone knows how to wear white shirts in a basic way. To make a simple silhouette more stylish and interesting, one can be creative in details: for example, half tuck-in, sleeve rolled, unbuttoned or wearing with bold and colorful accessories. Or try something bold on the bottom.

我相信白襯衫的基本搭配大家都會, 所以我想分享, 如何讓白襯衫的造型簡單之餘,又時尚有趣. 重點在於細節的掌握. 比方說, 將白襯衫塞一半進褲頭, 一半外露, 或者捲起袖子, 會有種率性的時尚感. 刻意不扣上排幾顆扣子, 或者將白襯衫下緣打結, 可以創造視覺上的多層次, 展現不過份刻意的性感. 另外, 利用顏色鮮豔的飾品(手袋, 鞋子, 絲巾, 多層次或大件項鍊等) 或下半身穿著大膽的線條或圖案, 都會讓人眼前一亮.

If a white shirt has been quite distinctive already, the rest can just goes simple. Of course, if you’re a styling expert, playing with the silhouette would be fun. Layering is always a good tactic!

如果你的白襯衫本身已有強烈設計感, 那麼其他的搭配可以輕輕帶過, 不須喧賓奪主. 當然, 如果你是搭配高手, 自然可以利用多層次穿搭, 或者選擇一些線條強烈的下半身, 讓你的整體輪廓流動感更強, 主張更強烈.

Have fun with your white shirts in this summer- let it brighten you up with style!

白襯衫可說是為夏季而生的主角. 這個夏天, 試試用白襯衫讓自己既時髦又容光煥發吧!
