This is the 6th entry in a 10 part series on Wardrobe Essentials. Be sure to check out parts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5!
Sitting down to write this post feels a little silly, since the white button down is probably the most versatile piece out of all 10 of the wardrobe essentials I’ve been showing you. I really think that a white button down can go with everything and anything. You know, just not nothing, because then you would be sans pants.
Still feeling a little inspired by Coachella, I paired the Uniqlo button down (only $30!) with some cropped and destroyed denim, crazy shoes, an even crazier backpack, and some real 70s glam sunglasses. I would rock this look with some bed head, my shirt half tucked, and some lipstick to glam it up a little.
When I started putting together this collage, I knew one of the looks had to be paired with this pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses. Seriously, they are a little too small in this photo to tell, but trust me, they are the coolest sun shielding eye wear I’ve come across this season. They have a frame that is laser cut metal paired with a blue/green reflective lens. They are on my wish list indefinitely. Anyway, the outfit you see before you is what came to be after I put the sunglasses with the shirt. I would wear the shirt in an unexpected way with this outfit; like tying it as a crop top or criss-crossing the front of it as it is tucked into the skirt (which has become popular recently).
This look is about as girly as you will ever see me suggest. But I loved the print on the shorts and then the sparkly accouterments just accumulated from there.
What do you guys think? How do you wear your white button downs?
