If there’s a staple that can be found in any girl’s wardrobe, my best guess is that it would be a basic white button down. It’s hands-down one of the most versitle pieces a woman can own – from dressing it up under a suit blazer to dressing it down with a pair of boyfriend denim. It’s my go-to item in my closet for easily achieving that effortless “I just woke up but still look chic” style that Parisian women seem to be born with.
Over the past several years of cycling through white button-up after white button-up, I decided it was time to shake things up. After all, who said a white button-up had to be boring? A white blouse can still serve as a staple in your closet while having a little bit of character. Experiment with ruffles, lace, and necklines, all while maintaining that effortlessly chic aesthetic. I’m loving the retro feel of this one (yes, it even has shoulder pads).
