wardrobe essentials: button up shirt10/10/2016
I’ve yet to come across another equally effective way of dressing up in a totally relaxed manner. For me, it’s always been button up shirt way or no way. There is a reason why these pieces of our wardrobes are considered elegant and above all – appropriate for the most important occasions. Weddings? Check. Work? Check. Anything in between those two? Check & check. Button up shirts are these pillars that hold together everything you might’ve put on yourself that day. They can be paired with the most ripped pair of bleached jeans and guess what? Those classic shirts would still make you look incredibly well put-together.
Rushing to a black tie event? Pick a silk button up shirt, toss a pearl necklace around your neck on your way out the door and enjoy the elegance you’re exuding. Conversely, they have the ability to transform into such a casual piece if worn in such a setting. Unbutton the first three buttons from the top and roll up the sleeves. Head to the beach with a book in one hand and your shoes in the other – you’ll witness the magic that is the power of a classic button up shirt.
