WIW: Crisp White Shirt Tunic!

Hi Ladies,

Needless to say I am MUCH happier with today's efforts:)

I have long been enamoured with the concept of the crisp white shirt but very rarely does it work for me.  I found this one in June.  It's from Sussan and it has a sheer back and sleeves (to the cuff) and a nice little collar.  My intention is to layer with it. I really don't expect to wear it on its own.  I have a number of black items that I think will layer over the tunic well. One in particular will cover the body but reveal the sheer sleeves.

Today I wore it for the first time.  This is a work outfit and I was facilitating training for most of the day.

The outfit is:

New Cover Crinkly Black Jacket
Sussan Sheer Back Tunic/Shirt
Zara Leggings
Hush Puppie Ankle Boots
Sandler Snow Leopard Handbag 
Rimmel Salon Pro "Punk Rock"

I put the outfit together with no intention of removing the jacket:)  But I thought I would show you the sheer back. I will probably buy a fitted seamless white slip to wear under the tunic in future.. so please excuse how it looks. Or I may try my black one underneath, sometimes the all black under layer can work with white.

And I included my cute Snow Leopard bag in the hope that it might detract from the other bags... those ones under my eyes :) Bit of a sleepless night due to a full on thunder and rain store at 3.00 a.m.:)

What do you think?  Better effort than yesterday??  I really enjoyed this, and liked it as much at the end of the day as I did when I put it on this morning.

Thanks for looking.
xxx Deborah

    This is a gorgeous outfit. Great layering....love the effect of black and white.

    Gorgeous bag, Deb...and no, I don't see the bags under your eyes. You look lovely and polished as ever :) Love the earrings too

    I really really love that crisp white on you, Deborah. With the black jacket it looks fantastic! I have a white tunic top and have been wearing it on its own, but I will try it under a jacket too. I like it layered.

  • LucyRose replied 5 years ago

    Your outfits always floor me. So cool! I love how you manage to layer without adding bulk. 

  • Word Lily replied 5 years ago

    The tunic works for you here, for sure, yay!

    (Is it completely off base that I'm surprised by the jacket's front tie? If so, just ignore me.)

    Gorgeous shirt, and fab layering.  Is this the top that you are hoping to use with the cropped sweater? 

  • Helen11 replied 5 years ago

    Love the sheer sleeves of the shirt. Your whole look is fabulous, and the snow leopard bag gorgeous . Will you show us the tunic over a black base layer, too? I'd love to see how it works.

    Oh, I love it Deb! Such a great fit and shape for you. I really like the sheer effect. That's a great animal print bag too. Like the nail polish! I use Salon Pro too :)

    This is my unicorn - a white tunic shirt that I like and looks good on me.  I love the whole look. 

  • Lyn D. replied 5 years ago

    This is the way to wear a white shirt without it looking too 'stuffy'!
    I think the longer length is great :)

  • Style Fan replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeous.  What bags under your eyes?

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    Yes!  This is the "Deborah" way to wear black and white!  Gorgeous!

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    This may be my favorite of your outfits to date. Stunning.

  • Lucy replied 5 years ago

    Absolutely LOVE this. Dare I say one of my fav's ever! Just gorgeous as is, and topped off perfectly by that bag.

  • Firecracker replied 5 years ago

    Wow--amazing outfit. I like the white shirt-tunic! And those leggings!

  • Cococat replied 5 years ago

    It's lovely Deborah. (thinking that it's late night shopping and I might have to sneak off to Sussan to be a copy cat again...lol)

  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    Thanks so much ladies:)

    CocoC, be my guest :)  Heres a link http://www.sussan.com.au/sheer.....hirt-white but I note they are sold out with only size 8 left.  For your info, I bought the 12.. and it wasn't on sale :( lol

    Wow, wow! What a great white button down! Best of all of white shirt's worlds! Crisp and structured, transparent, flowy and drapey! Extra long and flattering! OMG! Couldn't have thought there even exists a button down so functional and clever like this!!!! wow! Love it!

  • lyn67 replied 4 years ago

    Came back to say, if the back is that sheer,  a black cami could look very interesting, indeed! Subtle but fancy, I would say:-).
