The Parada Edit No.2: 5 Modern Takes on The Classic White Shirt

Celebrity stylist Carlos Alonso-Parada gives an old wardrobe staple a new life.

We asked our favorite celebrity stylist, Carlos Alonso-Parada, to take time off from his busy schedule and play dress-up with us. The proposition: five modern takes utilizing the classic white dress shirt. Carlos showed us several combinations that inspired us to give the old wardrobe staple a new go, and the results are anything but basic.


Keegan wears the white shirt paired with a tweed mini skirt and preppy sequined striped sweater. Gap button-up white shirt; Dior earrings, Saint Laurent sequin sweater, and Balenciaga tweed skirt all Forty Five Ten.


Paired easily with distressed denim and a vintage embroidered jacket for an eclectic vibe. Gap button-up white shirt, Vintage jacket, Brandy Pham earrings, Mark Cross bag at Forty Five Ten, Joe Fresh jeans.


For a touch of cool and a little androgyny, pair with a white suit. Altuzarra jacket and pants at Forty Five Ten, Gap white button-up, Swarovski earrings and ring at Forty Five Ten.


A fresh take on the retro 60’s silhouette. Tomas Maier white button-up at Forty Five Ten, Vintage sunglasses, Derek Lam wool dress at Forty Five Ten.


Our personal favorite, paired with the young and modern wide-leg pants. Tomas Maier white button-up at Forty Five Ten, vintage horn rings at Vintage Martini, Rosie Assoulin pants at Forty Five Ten.
