While on a recent trip to Tuscany, as always

I am struck by the never ending beauty

of landscape,  art,  architecture and fashion.

In evidence was that singular garment,

the crisp white shirt

CWS

which seems to herald

 Spring’s expected soothing warmth and

Summer’s hotly anticipated intense sunshine

There is something luxuriously decadent about the CWS

sun drenched day scenario:

wearing a white shirt of fine cotton cloth

the soft feel against the skin and

add to this sensation

 the warmth of a sun kissed day

Bliss.

A closet staple, which can be worn in its many guises:

cropped, flowing, sleeved or not, collared or not …

casual with jeans or partnered with a long evening skirt.

The crisp white shirt can be styled with anything

for any occasion,  for any time of day …

a wardrobe must, a wardrobe main- to- stay
