At the beginning of every new year my favorite thing to think about is how I am going to change my style for the new year. What pieces will I add to my wardrobe and what will become a new staple item in my wardrobe? One thing I have already fallen madly in love with this year is button downs. They can be sexy, casual, or formal with a simple change in styling and how many buttons are buttoned 😉
I must admit my new love for button downs may be due to the fact that I work at Madewell where denim and button downs are our thing. In the photo above I am wearing our Oversized Ex-Boyfriend Shirt in star print.
In this blog post I want to share some of my new favorite button downs so you can join my addiction to button downs 😉
Let’s be honest we are ALL (not so) patiently awaiting Spring. This button down is perfect for this transitioning period from cold to spring. It will also be a perfect swimsuit cover up during the summer months. Also who isn’t in love with this yellow color!
I feel like everyone needs a chambray shirt in their life. They look great with black, white, and colored denim. If you have the right pair of jeans, chambray also looks great as a denim on denim look. I love the color of this chambray shirt from J. Crew.
This button down is perfect for my romantic girly girls. It drapes beautifully and would look so elegant paired with a skirt or romantic yet casual paired with skinny jeans and heels for a date. I love the pleats on this top and the ruffled hem on the collar. It’s feminine but also very versatile in styling.
This gorgeous horse pattern has been appearing ALL OVER my instagram feed and I am not mad about it. It is such a unique print and I think it is a great way to rep the new western trend without going too over the top. I would pair this top with a pair of boyfriend jeans and unbutton the top 3 buttons and tuck in half the shirt to give the look a relaxed style.
I bet this blog post has made you fall madly in love with button downs and I hope at least one of these tops is in your online shopping cart 😉 I’ve got a few in mine. As I continue to grow my button down collection I am very eager to see what clothing item will spark my interest next!
Remember to always Love Who You Are.
