One of the most classic pieces of clothing, a White Shirt, can be worn for almost all occasions. Traditionally worn as symbol of wealth by the elite as they could afford to keep it white and clean, it is now a staple wardrobe requirement along the lines of perfect denims and the little black dress.

FrameUp! – Wear the classic shirt in style keeping in mind your body type. For a thin frame person, buying that perfect fitting white shirt can indeed be troublesome; they’re either too large or too long.
