A button-up blouse can be a serious work horse in your closet. Wear it untucked with shorts, belted with with a pencil skirt, tucked into a skirt or pants for an always polished and classic look. On it’s own, or under a blazer, it’s perfect.
But, who says that a button-up has to be basic? With embellishments showing up in a big way as we head into fall, check out the attention to detail in the following button-ups that are sure to update your wardrobe.
I was first inspired to write this post when I was shopping at Flavour. If you have not stepped into this store, or it’s been a while, check it out. It’s a trendy boutique with some great options for many ages. And, I’m crazy gaga over their jewelry options. Where have I been all these years not shopping at Flavour? Thank you, readers, for turning me onto it.
Inspired, I headed over to Levy’s to find some more button-ups with a little somethin’ somethin’…
So, are you thinking that perhaps your man needs to step it up a bit with his button-up and khakis uniform? (Standard issue for many, though not all men.) Never fear, some shirts do exist that push the envelope, but not too far.
We found several shirts for men at Levy’s and Flavour. These two shirts are photographed at Flavour – they have a men’s shop as well.
Hope you are inspired to revisit the button-up in an inventive way.
