3 ways to wear a white button up

happy tuesday friends! today i have an excellent treat for you. alison from puppies and pretties is guest posting to show you 3 ways to wear a white button up.  someone needs to give fashion advice over here, because we both know it isn't going to be me.  take it away alison! 3 ways white button up Hi Lot 48 readers! I've been reevaluating my closet as of late (see this post) and I realized I haven't worn this white button up in ages. While a button up like this is often relegated to the corporate office, there are so many different ways to wear one, even in the summer. Any item that can take me from the office to after work activities with a small change (or none at all!) is a winner in my book. So lets take a look at my three looks in depth. PS: I've linked to the items I'm wearing or super similar items!

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 pants

Palazzo 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 denim

White 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?
I hope you come visit me at Puppies & Pretties!
