That the white shirt is a genuine wardrobe essential is not up for debate—it's easily the hardest working item for all our favourite influencers, stylists, and celebrities. If the fresh breath of spring has you itching to add yet another iteration to your closet, you'll be happy to hear that Karen Millen has released a capsule collection of white shirts, The White Shirt Campaign. Yes, nothing but crisp white cotton designed for every conceivable style tribe. What a dream!
