A sartorial blank canvas, the white shirt is the artful, timeless go-to for modern girls everywhere

Inspired by Witchery's philanthropic initiative with the White Shirt Campaign, (all proceeds go to the Ovarian Cancer Fund's continuing research for early prevention) we got to thinking about the white shirt and its transformative ability to make the wearer look instantly smart, fresh and chic.

While most of us have a basic button down in our wardrobes, - and if don't, you should - designers are putting twists on the classic style, opting for innovative fabrics and adding intrigue with surface details.
