Think about a white button-down as your canvas. Either dress one up with a black skirt, tights and booties à la Freida Pinto. Or wear un-buttoned with a cool graphic tee and distressed jeans for a casual weekend look. Just note that a silk option (and a little bit of Spandex for comfort) won't bunch up at the buttons as much, and will last much longer than a regular cotton shirt.
