What seems like ages ago, I used to do a closet staples series here on my blog. It seemed like time to do another, so today I’m sharing one of my favorite closet essentials — the gingham button up.

Gingham is one of those prints that works for all seasons, and a button up in this pattern is the perfect piece because you can wear it so many ways and for all different kinds of weather.

During the summer, I love tying the sleeves around my waist over a shift dress. In the fall, I wear it with a pair of jeans and ankle boots. In the winter, layer it under a sweater. And in the spring, wear it over a dress and button it up but tie the ends into a knot at your stomach.

My very favorite gingham button up is this one from j.crew factory, but I also love this larger check one that’s under $15, and this one that has more of a boyfriend fitThis one has contrasting lining, which creates a pretty little detail, and this one in a lighter blue is so pretty.
