Malene Birger White Greville Shirt (My-Wardrobe, $78)

The white button down shirt is a classic for a reason.  To choose the right one, you need to look for a crisp fabric that isn’t see through, good quality buttons and a strong collar.  Nothing looks worse than a cheaply made white shirt with permanently-wrinkled cuffs and collar.

    I can't recommend this shirt enough. It's the only thing I own from Brooks Brothers. It has remained bright white, in good shape, and wrinkle-free despite many washes. You may want a dressier white blouse for some occasions, but this has saved my life many times when I couldn't get to the dry cleaners. https://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Section_Id=691&Product_Id=1231514&Parent_Id=302&default_color=White

    I second J. Those Brooks Brothers non-Iron shirts are the very best.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
