We believe that every closet should have a classic white top. Whether it’s a silk blouse, a crisp cotton Oxford, or a sumptuously soft tee – it’s a wardrobe necessity! With the arrival of a brand new month, we thought we’d go back to basics and give our closets the ultimate refresh. Our muse? The Helmut Lang Swift V-Neck Top.

A white top is truly the most versatile piece you can own. We chose this one for the length and the sexy v-neck. With the right styling, it can transform from basic to bold. We first paired it with distressed denim, lace up suede booties, and a utility vest for a cool-girl, weekend worthy look. For the office, we’d wear it with a patterned pencil skirt and lace-up black pumps. Both looks are vastly different – meaning you could wear this top two days in a row and no one would notice. (Thank you, laundry day!)

Tell us – how would you style this classic white top?
