For this look I was being really weird about my top. Honestly I settled on my hair, makeup, shorts, and shoes about half an hour before I found the top I wanted. Does that ever happen to you guys? You’re just so close to a full outfit, and then just can;t quite make it happen? *ugh* It’s so annoying.
Finally I went for a basic white tee (with a cute graphic of course), and was just looking for a final layer to pull it all together. I started with my denim jacket, but decided I wasn’t feeling denim-on-denim for today. Then I loved my leather jacket, but it was just too hot for this 100 degree day. That’s when I grabbed my thing H&M button down – but there were so many ways to wear it #thestruggle.
1.) Wearing a Button-Up Around the Waist
Most recently Desi Perkins (like the best Youtube Beauty Guru) has been rocking this casual look, and I love it! It totally reminds me of being in elementary school and I’m falling in love with the style all over again! The best part is how practical it is for Texas. Since the shirt will cover ya booty, your legs won’t stick to chairs *praise the heavens*. Not to mention, everywhere in the south blasts AC like cray, so outside it’s 100, and inside I swear its 50.
2.) Wearing a Button-Up Draped Over Your Shoulders
This style is sooooo chic right now *I’m looking at you Kim K*. As pointless as it looks, while I was trying it out I actually found it very comfortable! It’s just enough to keep you warm indoors, and even if it’s only a little breezy you’ll stay cool!
3.) Wearing a Button-Up as a Jacket
The last is pretty obvious but surprisingly nice! Wearing a button-up as a jacket has been ‘a thing’ in men’s fashion since like forever, so it gives your look a bit of a tomboy feel *yay*. Plus it’s nice and warm!
So those are the three trendiest ways to wear a button-up! All three of these looks I rocked all in one day so it gave my outfit a really nice sense of versatility, and most importantly, comfortable!
Have fun, and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram or Twitter trying out these style @dressingdevon!
