STYLE GURU STYLE: Not Just for Business

Button-down tops are known for their timeless place in fashion. They are usually worn for more of a professional look, seen in places like the office. Button-downs give a sense of sophistication and accomplishment. However, lately this trend has been featured in more than just the workplace. It’s been seen on the runways and streets in more unique textures, patterns, and styles. This trend is perfect for the transition from those cold winter months to the start of the spring season.

For my look today, I styled an off-the-shoulder button-down top. This was the main focus of my outfit because it was a unique spin on the classic stripped button-down. I paired this top with some black skinny jeans and a pair of brown sandals. If it’s still colder where you live, the sandals could be swapped out for a pair of booties or sneakers. I added a lace choker and a silver layered ring to add a little spin to my look.

Overall, this look could be worn more casually to class or out with some friends. It can be done more professionally with a jacket or sweater and some heels swapped in and out with the pieces already found in the outfit. It still gives off that work attire, but with the accessories, it shows that it is more laid back and relaxed. Button-downs, along with many timeless fashion pieces, are coming back into trend, showing that they just aren’t for the business professionals anymore.
