While white shirts only used to be worn in the office, they are now a fashion staple and celebrity favourite.

This staple piece of clothing can be worn with shorts or jeans for a casual look or teamed with a skirt for a more feminine feel.

You can also dress up this everyday classic with your choice of jewellery if you’re planning on wearing a white shirt on a hot date.

Elizabeth Olsen, youngster sister of the fashionista twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, transformed her white shirt for the red carpet by opting for a statement necklace, as pictured on Heat World.

She finished her outfit with an orange skirt, flat sandals and a relaxed up-do.

Olsen can currently be seen in Martha Macy May Marlene, in which she plays someone trying to readjust to life after escaping an abusive cult.

Alternatively you can achieve a supermodel look with your white shirt a la Miranda Kerr who teamed hers with a tweed skirt, high heels and several rings.
