What is the single most important piece of clothing in a woman's wardrobe? According to Chicago-based fashion editor Stacy Wallace-Albert, it's an old standard—the crisp, white button-down shirt. "It has to be fitted, and it must be crisp and perfect at all times," she says.
All too often, white shirts get worn once and linger in the ironing pile. So Stacy embarked on a wash-and-wear quest for the best white shirt. Brooks Brothers' No-Iron Fitted White Shirt emerged as the winner ($89 at Brooks Brothers locations). In fact, Stacy wore hers to the show un-ironed and un-steamed! "This one came out of the dryer last night like this," she says.
