Nothing is better than a crisp cotton poplin white shirt, but there are options beyond your basic button-down. Both of these Toteme shirts appeal to me because they have modern silhouettes that make them a focal point of your outfit, not just a base layer. Plus they are not super expensive (I do not believe in sinking a lot of money into white shirts since they yellow and stain over time). With jeans and sneakers they work on the weekend, switch your shoe to a slide or low heel, it’s dressy enough for work or a night out. Left shirt, $270 , right shirt, $210.
