Some things you wear just a few times and then toss to the back of the closet. Not the white shirt. It's a staple, a wardrobe basic that makes the rounds.On its own, the white shirt may not seem very interesting, but itsbeauty lies in how readily it complements a variety of moods. Casual and comfortable when worn as an oversized peasant shirt -- tucked in, wrapped or tied in front; strictly business, starched and stiff-collared, giving TV's Murphy Brown her edge.The white shirt can be borrowed from the closet of the man in the house or purchased from one of the haute houses -- say, $550 at Chanel.

You could say William J. "Billy the Kid" Johnson's style is a knockout. Literally. The Baltimore native is a professional super middle-weight boxer. But that's only one of several hats he wears. Johnson manages the local offices for Velocity Express, which makes deliveries for NeighborCare pharmacies, and he owns B-Quick Bail Bonds. On top of all that, Johnson is one of the top players in the World Poker Tour Amateur Poker League; he's trying for a seat at the World Series of Poker. When we caught up with him, he was practicing in the Radisson Plaza Lord Baltimore Hotel ballroom during the American Lung Association's Casino Night.

A white shirt chases the blues away.Ask any man.A quick shower, shave and pristine shirt fresh from the laundry and he's ready to tackle the world. No compromises, no gray areas with white. Even laundry products which promise to keep white at its brightest echo that note of optimism -- Cheer, Bold, Fresh Start, Yes.Yes! The one positive step women can take now to give the wardrobe a jolt is to invest in a white shirt. Not an ordinary oxford, but a top that makes dramatic use of traditional masculine details.

Shirts and ties are always in season, but occasionally it's nice to see a man venture out of the business wear box. Some go ultra-casual, with T-shirts and slim jeans (not necessarily my favorite idea of work wear); others try suits with collarless shirts for a more New York, beatnik appeal. I'm a fan of the office attire here - a bright-colored, striped shirt and slacks - because it says I take my job seriously, but I can have fun with my clothes. And anything that deviates from the blue-shirt-and-khakis uniform is all right with me.

This is the season for the crisp white shirt, which, incidentally, has never really gone out of fashion. It's classic and sexy, simple and clean. But there's a danger in wearing the staple: if not done right, it's not so much a basic as it is boring. Alexis MacDonald shows us how to do the white shirt justice, with just a hint of a crisp blouse peeking through under a slim, black sweater and fun-colored pants. Her accessories (animal print and classic) jazz up the look. And even her ponytail looks fresh with a headband added.

Flap your cuffs and say you believe in fashion! The woman who hasn't yet locked on to the idea that the white shirt with a droopy cuff is fall's key wardrobe element has a lot of catching up and shopping to do. They're on store mannequins, in the ads and all over the fat September fashion magazines. Their very number and variety would have the fashion innocents believing that this is going to be fall's easy update. Guess again.This year's white shirt is "important." That's fashion maven talk for "you can't fake it."

My boyfriend likes cuff links, but I'm not crazy about many of his choices. What are the criteria for cuff links in good taste?Te ugliest cuff links I ever remember seeing were gracing the wrist of a CEO who should have known better. Gracing is not the right word. They were dominating the wrist of this otherwise well-dressed man.The near quarter-size cuff links were blue carved Wedgwood china disks that would have filled any little girl with delight as dinner plates in her doll house. Despite the beautiful color and fine workmanship, their enormous size made them monstrosities.

This summer's strongest trends -- long, sweeping 1940s-style dresses and vests, and head-to-toe white -- have an ease that fits the season where simplicity is key. Animal-print shades give a glamorous finish, and soft hats provide a gentle touch of romance.The strong '40s flavor surfacing in summer fashions will be strengthened by fall. Meanwhile, enjoy ankle-length silk or rayon dresses that skim rather than squeeze the body. Styles this summer feature short or cap sleeves, or in the case of sun dresses, pretty crisscross straps in the back.

It's simple. It's clean. It's part of everyone's wardrobe.The ubiquitous white T-shirt sits in your drawer or hangs in your closet, and you reach for it like an old friend. It's comfortable, it's easy to wear, and you don't have to think twice when you put it on. It works with jeans. It works under a fancy suit. It works as the perfect billboard for your favorite charity or rock band. A no-brainer.But Alice Harris, author and former fashion publicist, has thought a great deal about this wardrobe staple and shares her observations in "The White T" (HarperCollins, $45)

Stylist Paul Skotarczak believes a visit to a beauty salon should be an experience of renewal -- a chance to sit back, find new confidence and emerge for the better.He may have discovered the key to reflection during his years as a semi-cloistered monk of the Black Franciscan order, where he also studied for his degree in philosophy. Although his time as a monk was a rich spiritual experience, he says, he wanted more."I thought it possible to touch and influence more people by being in the world," he says.

Baltimore County police officers working night shifts will be trading in their shirts today -- switching from bright whites to subdued blues that they say will make them a less conspicuous target for a criminal aiming a gun.Although no studies or documented incidents suggest that officers wearing white shirts are shot more often, department officials say that perception has led to the change."

Take one look at Stu Scesney -- the suspenders, the Donald Duck tie, the Reeboks -- and you immediately think . . . casting agent? The president of the Talent Factory, a Cockeysville-based company specializing in photography, design and casting, doesn't exactly look the part of slick executive.But he believes his casual, sometimes goofy attire works in his favor. "They always say, 'Dress for success,' " says Mr. Scesney, 29, who lives in Cockeysville. "In my situation, where everyone dresses in a suit, I'm known for not doing that."
