The White Button Up: The Shirt That Keep You Chic In Every Season

white button up


A white button up is a wardrobe staple that will carry you through every season and every outfit crisis that comes your way. I mean, it is the definition of chic and effortless! You know those days when you’re feeling “ugh” and you’re convinced you have nothing to wear in your closet? Those are the days when I reach for a white button up; it never fails to look good, even on those hot mess kind of days. A white button up is a wardrobe staple that I have in several styles, everything from crisp cotton to soft and silky, that way I can rotate them around and not feel like I’m wearing the same one every time, even though sometimes I do.

 

During the warmer months, I love styling a crisp white button up with shorts and pair of heels or wedges, it’s a combo that makes me feel super feminine without going overkill on the girlie vibes, although the amount of pink I’m wearing may be contradictory to that statement. I like to keep things interesting by leaving some buttons undone so that a lace bralette can peek through. Don’t be afraid to show a bit of skin! When it comes to fit, I prefer an oversized feel for my choice of button up because that in itself can make a statement. White button ups look darling draped off the shoulders, tucked into your favorite pair of shorts or jeans, or just worn loose and flowy.

 

As we transition into the cooler months, I reach for a silky white button up to bring an element of class to my outfit. Whether it’s layered under leather jacket for a bit of edge or an oversized blazer for a chic look, you can’t go wrong. Styling it with a skirt and boots is also a winning combo for Fall, especially here in Sacramento, as we wait for the temperature to catch up with the season. I will definitely be bringing a white button up along with me when I travel to London for a friends wedding next month. Classic pieces like the white button up are my jam throughout the year and I hope you start adding them to your wardrobe too!

    In my opinion, a white button down shirt is probably the most versatile piece of clothing in the wardrobe. It goes well with absolutely anything, in any weather.

      I couldn’t agree with you more! It’s so nice to have something in my closet that I can always count on to look fab!
