Here are some of my favorite styling tricks to take your shirt from simple to chic. Use these styling tips to update your classic button up shirt in an instant!
The Casual Half Tuck
Nothing is more cool, effortless, and stylish than the half tucked shirt. To get the look, unbutton the last 1-2 buttons of your shirt. Take one side of your shirt and tuck it in the front, from the button to the side seam. Leave the back hanging out.
The Trendy Top Off-duty style is all about comfort, and that why an un-tucked shirt with relaxed, rolled sleeves works well on the weekend. Give your sleeves 1-2 rolls so when your arms are down, they rest just between your elbow and wrist. It doesn’t have to be perfect, rolled sleeves don’t have to be symmetrical. What matters most about this top-button shirting trick is the type of shirt you style it on. Sheer, soft fabrics and interesting maxi length button-up shirts work best because they keep the look trendy and feminine
The classic full-tuck. Let’s face it, the style speaks for itself, you should already know how to do this one by now.
The best part about the button-up shirt? It’s an outfit investment! Buy one and wear it forever. This is a must have item for this Spring.
