The White Shirt: What Makes it so Sexy?

Marilyn MonroeWhat is it about this everyday article of clothing that makes it so sexy? It’s all in the way you wear it and the story you let it tell.

There are so many ways we humans communicate: we use words and the tones of our voices, we gesture, we cast glances.  The way we dress also says something about who we are and what we want.  People are usually most conscious of the communicative potential of what they wear for a job interview or a first date, but why not use this power more often, more consciously?  What’s your story anyway?

Now, for women.  Imagine a beautiful woman padding around a luxurious bedroom wearing nothing but a man’s white dress shirt.  Think of Bridget Bardot or Marilyn Monroe: women who wore the white shirt with unselfconscious sensuality.  This is the woman who rises touseled from bed and covers herself with her lover’s dress shirt discarded from the night before.
