On Tuesday I shared 3 ways to wear your white button up, and today I want to share three more looks. The possibilities are nearly endless with a basic white shirt like this, and they really are an essential for every woman’s closet, so if you don’t have one, seriously go get one.
First up, Layered With a Sweater. This is such a perfect fall layering piece — throw it under any of your sweaters and either roll the sleeves up, or keep them down and have the wrists puffed (like I did here). You can also leave the collar unbuttoned (like I did here), or button it all the way up for a more preppy look. Try it with oversized sweaters, thick and thin sweaters, or three quarter or short sleeved sweaters.
Next, Tied Up. I’ve only started doing this to my shirts in the last few months because before that I felt like it looked too “cowgirl.” But as long as you’re wearing modern, feminine pieces (and not cowboy boots), it doesn’t look cowgirl at all. Plus, it’s a great trick for remixing those oversized button up blouses. Try it over maxi dresses or shorter dresses.
And lastly, layered under a dress. During the cooler months you can still get some good use out of your sleeveless dresses by layering button ups under them. I typically go for a chambray button up, but a white button up creates a whole different look, both evening and work appropriate. Plus, I love the little hint of sparkle tucked under the collar. You could also wear it under sleeveless maxi dress, or sleeveless tops.
