Women’s formal shirts are essential for creating a polished and professional look. At Ella Hopfeldt, the dress shirt brand for women, we specialise in classic formal shirts that are designed to elevate your everyday style.

Whether you are looking for a luxurious French cuff shirt or a classic dress shirt that makes you look sharp and sophisticated, you will find many appealing designs in our collection.

French Cuffs are a Statement Making Look

French cuff shirts are the most formal and the dressiest shirts a woman can own. French cuffs are double length cuffs featuring extra fabric that is folded back upon itself and then fastened with cufflinks. These shirts are ideal for anyone looking to add a little glamour to their everyday office attire.

In place of buttons that normally fasten the cuffs of a shirt, button-ups with French cuffs require cufflinks to fasten. These small accessories add an air of sophistication and style to your look while providing the perfect opportunity to showcase your sense of fashion.

Ella Hopfeldt’s collection of women’s French cuff shirts features shirts made from the finest cotton. The material oozes luxury and refinement and its natural shine lends an air of elegance to the shirts. It is soft to the touch, gentle on the skin and easy to maintain. This kind of fabric ensures that the shirt holds its shape and color even after many washes.

The French cuff shirts are available in classic tones including white, light blue, pink and navy.
