Creating fall outfits centered around a white shirt and a pair of jeans is a frequent topic among bloggers of all ages. A button up the front shirt isn’t right for everyone. They can add bulk, and when you layer them, the collar always wants to go its way, and let’s not forget to mention those pesky buttons that gap open at all the wrong places. My solution is to wear a scoop neck, sleek, slim-fitting top, and a pair of dark wash jeans with a smooth pull-on waistband instead of a zipper.

The fabric should skim your body and be thin enough not to add bulk as you layer over it.
