Button-downs aren’t just for the boys. This week, we scoured the fashion blogs to find ladies who demonstrated how to make menswear-inspired tops totally chick-friendly. Here are our top three favorite looks:
1. Karla Deras of Karla's Closet; karlascloset.blogspot.com, @karla_deras.
Pixie-cut sporting Karla Deras played with shapes and colors, mixing a bold blue square patterned silk shirt with a super short mini. Everything is coordinated to match, including the shades, the shoes, and the scarf attached to her black tote. Thoughtfulness at its best!
2. Megan Stewart of Another Day To Dress Up; anotherdaytodressup.blogspot.com.
California-based Megan Stewart paired her black leaf printed button-down with a long vintage Valentino skirt, chunky brown sandals, and a black knit hat. The shirt’s hint of bright orange and outdoorsy print make this a great transition piece to wear from summer to fall.
3. Sarah Boram of The Stylish Heart; thestylishheart.blogspot.com.
This British blogger tucked a Topshop dress into ripped jean shorts to create a menswear button-down shirt effect. We love the details on this top, like the polka dots and dainty round black buttons.
+ Which is your favorite look? Do you wear button-downs like these ladies?
