There is something so simple, so classic about this week’s Fashionista that made me use her as inspiration. My favorite trend right now is a collared shirt, buttoned all the way to the top. Buttoning all of the buttons on your shirt used to be something only nerds would do but since dressing nerdy is now deemed cool, this is a different way to style your top that works for both boys and girls.
My favorite aspect of this Fashionista’s ensemble is the way her collar is adorned with an array of sequins. It’s a small embellishment such as this that adds an aesthetic surprise and makes an otherwise ordinary sheer blouse that much more interesting. She finishes off her outfit with some dark wash skinny jeans and a pair of casual nude suede wedges.
A shirt with an unusual detail on the collar is something you should try to incorporate into your winter wardrobe. Buttoning your shirt all the way to the top really makes the decorations on the collar stand out even more. Try embellishing with pearls with this blouse from Urban Outfitters, or opt for a minimalist look with a simple metal tipped collar from Topshop. You could even make a D.I.Y out of it and revamp a shirt you already own! Guys, try buttoning your standard plaid shirt to the top to emulate a British schoolboy and channel your inner nerd.
Sometimes, all it takes is a little tweaking to make your outfit more interesting. Take a tip from this Fashionista the next time you’re feeling bored with your blouses.
