The Button Up that is Everything but Basic

Alright y’all, I love a good button up. They are such an effortless & timeless piece to have in your wardrobe. Button ups are appropriate for just about any occasion and can be worn with everything!
For example: In the summer you can wear a button up with your favorite pair of denim shorts and converse. Don’t feel like tucking in your blouse to work or a family dinner? Pull over your coziest sweater and leave both your collar and shirt out.
You’re probably thinking, ‘button ups are also boring & basic’ – basic as in plain. I used to think that too, especially in grade school. But button ups don’t have to be basic – trust me when I say a little print, added texture and even length, can go a long way in upgrading your look.

 This button up from Forever 21 is everything but basic. The print catches your eyes, but it’s subtle. The color combo is black & ivory, which is just enough to make a statement, but it’s not overbearing to look at with the added flecks. The blouse is all one length, so I can leave it untucked and I won’t look lazy! I could tuck it in if I wore it with a pair of high-waisted jeans or a skirt…
I wore this outfit to class, but I would even wear it to Sunday brunch! If I’m going for drinks, I’d wear a black moto jacket on top, but if I was going to a concert in the park, I’d wear a cardigan.
The blouse is definitely work appropriate – If you’re going for a business casual look, wear it over jeans. If your workplace has a more formal dress code, I would wear it tucked into high-waisted black slacks or a skirt with tights.

See! The options are endless with a button up, and it doesn’t have to be b a s i c. How do you style your button ups?
