Great White Shirts at Every Size

You wear it to the office, after-work drinks, and even on the weekend: a classic white shirt is a wardrobe essential. While there are tons of embellished, bow-tied, subtly-printed and wrap-front iterations on the market today, it can be tricky to pick the one that's best for your own physique—i.e., that doesn't result in bunching, gaping or unnecessary boxiness.

As always, we're here to help.

Click through for our favorite anything-but-basic white shirts, all of which buck that "ill-fitting, dart-fronted" stereotype that seems to plague this closet basic. With options in every size from 0 to 24, you're sure to find one you love.
