Madonna And Kylie Minogue Work French Maid Chic

Madonna and Kylie Minogue have both stepped out in crisp white oversized shirts under black sheath dresses, sparking what we reckon is a huge trend for autumn/winter.

Madonna wore her L’Wren Scott number in Venice for the W.E. photocall, while Kylie Minogue donned her monochrome outfit for a meeting with her management in London yesterday.
Although this look resembles that of a French maid crossed with a convent nun, take inspiration from both Madonna and Kylie Minogue and pair with really high heels (Madge’s YSL Tributes are bang on), and while the weather is still above freezing, bare legs to stop it from looking prudish.
This look also stormed the Louis Vuitton AW11 catwalk and starched crisp collars adorned many of the runway looks over at Miu Miu. So get rifling through your wardrobe and dig out an LBD and the crispest shirt you can find! RS
  • Keep collars crisp and pointy to nail this look – a shirt with a Peter Pan collar will give a completely different feel.
  • Let the cuffs of the shirt poke out from under the sleeve of your dress, roll them back like Kylie for a smarter finish.
  • Stick to a longer hemline to keep the look demure and office appropriate.
  • Work this collar under a jumper too for when the weather turns colder.
