Look 1: With printed shorts
Adding playful shorts makes a button up more casual. This look is great for those days when you want a bit more coverage either because it is cooler or to protect your skin from the sun. Or maybe you are visiting grandma and need to add a bit of class to your outfit :)
Look 2: With palazzo pantsPalazzo pants are pretty much the best thing ever created. Have a business casual workplace, therefore making pajamas a no-no? Throw on a pair of palazzos with a button up and you are good to go. Just make sure your pair is a bit more structured! I just got this pair and plan on wearing them often because they just might be the most comfortable thing I own.
Look 3: With white denimWhite on white just screams summer. Its a clean look that can easily go from the workplace to drinks. Add pops of colors with your accessories and you are ready to go! The great thing about a button up is that you can add a statement necklace in multiple ways. With this look, I put it under the collar. For the previous looks, I added a longer one. You can even put a necklace under the collar for a tidy look.
See how versatile a white button up can be? Pair it with practically anything in your closet, and you will be good to go. My biggest tip for a white button up is to hold out for one that fits you just right. I know I struggled to find this one, and I finally found it at Banana Republic during a shopping trip to the Mall of America. If a button up just doesn't work for you, try a popover like this one.
Which look would you like to try this summer?
