7 Fresh Ways to Wear Button-Up Shirts

Button-ups are likely already a staple in your wardrobe, but if you are like us, it's starting to feel like time to reinvent them. To get inspiration, we checked in with a handful of our favorite style bloggers to get some fresh ideas for how to style and wear this classic shirt. Check out (and shop!) the looks we are lusting after below... 

Feminine & Polished

Sometimes a little ruffle goes a long way to reinvent a classic. We love the way @happilygrey styled this feminine white button-up with a cord A-line skirt and some chunky, bright statement boots.

Tied Around the Waist

This look might give you a bit of a flashback to middle school, but add some skinny jeans and a pair of bright red heels like @weworewhat and you'll instantly elevate the flannel-shirt-around-the-waist look to 2016-chic.

With a Long Pencil Skirt

The menswear-inspired, striped button-up is such an essential in any woman's closet and will look chic with just about anything – jeans, trousers, skirts, whatever! But for something a little less expected, take a page from @Sarah_nait and pair your (tucked-in!) shirt with a long, pencil skirt.

Under a Chunky Sweater

A collared shirt under a sweater may not sound like a new look, but opt for an extra-chunky knit, green cargos and a jean jacket around your waist like @blaireadiebee – and your outfit couldn't look fresher!

Double Denim

Denim on denim is so hot right now! We are particularly obsessed with @intoyourcloset's take on the trend. The light washed denim mini skirt and button-up paired with animal print loafers make for a look that beautifully juxtaposes masculine/feminine and effortless/polished.

With a Leather Vest

Adding a little leather is sure way to shake up an otherwise classic outfit. @retroflame knows how to achieve the perfect balance of edgy and soft by mixing a leather moto vest with a feminine button-up shirt, retro bell bottoms, and a structured, traditional bag.

With Nothing Underneath

The Risky Business costume isn't just for Halloween anymore. The @manrepeller shows us how to rock the white button-up sans pants without looking like a outfit malfunction. Just don't forget the gold accessories and platform heels!
