DIY: Classic White Shirt Updated


Alexander Wang Poplin Off-the Shoulder Shirt

When I first saw this shirt coming down Alexander Wang's F09 runway, I knew it would be the perfect DIY. It's such an innovative take on the classic white shirt. I love the deliberately oversized off- the- shoulder look, and the adjustable black straps sneaking out is such a tease! It's such a fun, relaxed, and chic look. Currently selling at $325, wouldn't you rather take 15 minutes of your time and make a similar version?

See below on how I made my version of Wang's shirt:
