How To Wear A Button Up

howtowearabuttonup 1

It was just a matter of time before I did a How To featuring my favorite article of clothing… in general, I prefer to lift button ups off of my dad or brother and then wear them to death.

The star shirt is from the Urban Outfitters Men’s Department, the red one¬†underneath my Madewell leather jacket is from Old Navy, the plaid one underneath my grandma’s monogrammed sweater is from my brother c/o of J.Crew, the polka dot shirt my mom got from Land’s End Canvas, the chambray one is Rag & Bone and worn over a Gap henley, and the “wishful thinking” shirt is from J.Crew, worn over a Victoria’s Secret string bikini and Forever 21 booty-licious shorts.

And if you haven’t already scoped these, here is How to Wear a Scarf, How to Wear a Tee, and¬†How to Wear Jeans.

Lastly, clicky clicky here to follow me on Bloglovin‘.

    Great ideas! This is random, but I just have to say, I’m glad someone else calls it a button up. So many people I know say “button down” or “button front.”

    This is such a beautiful piece! Not only is it a great styling reference, but it’s really well done artistically. Talk about two birds. Love it.
