5 Effortless Ways I Style My New Favorite White Top

As I get older, I'm realizing more and more that no matter how hard I try to pull off the latest Instagram fashion trends, I still gravitate toward more wearable, classic style. So when I got to thinking about what the one staple item in my wardrobe really is, the first thing that came to mind was the bevy of white tops I own. From countless variations of button-downs and structured blouses to classic white T-shirts, I can confidently say that a white top is the pièce de résistance of my wardrobe. This made me think, how can I plan out five different outfits for this season with my new favorite white top? AG's winter collection had my answer.

The Top

 As I mentioned, a white top is the bread and butter of my wardrobe thanks to its ability to make me look chic and effortlessly put-together. This light-knit version from AG has the slightly structured shoulder of a blouse yet is secretly ultra soft and comfortable, which scores major points in my book.  

The Bottoms

Outfit one? Wear with this A-line corduroy miniskirt. If you're L.A.-based like I am, you can brave the "cold" and go bare-legged with a pair of lace-up booties. If you find yourself in a colder climate, this would look great with tights and over-the-knee boots plus a light turtleneck layered in for good measure.

Two words: leopard pants. Add a pair of pumps and some gold jewelry, and you have an outfit ready for any last-minute holiday event.

For a truly effortless look, I always opt for a slightly cropped pair of jeans. It also doesn't hurt that a fitted white blouse lends well to wide-leg jeans and a pair of cool, square-toe ankle boots.

If light-wash denim isn't your thing, AG's wide-leg jeans also come in this darker wash. I can see myself wearing these jeans with a Western-inspired belt and a pair of black cowboy boots.

Did you actually think skinny jeans wouldn't make the cut? The classic combo of black and white is a no-brainer for those Monday mornings when I'm running 20 minutes behind schedule. I simply throw on any one of my many favorite relaxed-fit blazers and zoom into my meetings without having to give my look a second thought. 

 And if I still haven't sold you on the glories of owning a white top, AG has a black version, too.
