Women’s Fashion Trend: 10 Ways to Restore Your White Button Up This Spring

It’s that time of the season when you start to look through your closet and everything seems dull and outdated. Before breaking the bank on new threads, we recommend overcoming your stale outlook on your wardrobe by cleverly styling what only appears to be exhausted. With that said, it is always best to go back to the basics. Every young professional lady has a few classic white button downs in their closet, so we have come up with a few ways to make your seemingly unoriginal staple feel like brand new. 

1. Pairing a white blouse with a midi pencil skirt and waist-cinching belt creates a versatile, demure look whether you are at work or out for dinner and drinks. 

 

2. On spring’s cooler days, layering your white button down underneath a dress creates a trendy but still refined semblance.

3. Take cues from the spring’s runway shows including Alexander Wang, Rodarte and Zero + Maria Cornejo for a more contemporary and sensual look by fastening just the top button on your blouse and exposing your midriff. 

4. Keep it classic by matching your white shirt with blue denim. Whether you opt for a boyfriend jean or a slimmer cut, a denim skirt or cut off shorts, nothing looks quite as complete as blue jeans and a white blouse.  

5. Play with proportions by opting for an oversized version. Whether you pair with shorts or belt it as a dress, a bulkier take on the classic staple seems to be all the rage.

6. Accessorizing is always a great way to add vitality to a more primitive piece. Add a statement necklace, stacking bracelets, or even a tie to enliven your look. 

7. ‘Man Repeller’ blogger Leandra Meline shows us the power of layering by combining a mini skirt over jeans, open toed sandals with socks, and pairing her white blouse on top of a sheer long sleeve.  

8. Buttoning your buttons to the very top adds sophistication to your outfit.

9. Choose an all-white ensemble to create a clean, crisp presentation. Try pairing with white jeans, a white skirt or a white version of this season’s wide leg pant look. 

 

10. We love how Alexa Chung toughens up her time-honoured tunic with leather.
