A few months ago, we told you all about the spring and summer trends for 2016. If you remember, white shirt redux was one of them! You have probably noticed white button up shirts in all sorts of different shapes and styles cropping up all over the place lately. There are really so many different types to choose from, but we've picked two different looks to showcase for you here today. We're especially excited because these are great transitional pieces from summer to fall.
I found this dandy of a shirt at H&M recently. As I've mentioned, they've totally been killing it lately. This top actually mixes two trends into one, an off the shoulder shirt with a menswear inspired crisp white shirt. I especially love the button cuff details of this shirt. It's a perfect mix of masculine meets feminine.
To play up the feel of this shirt and to keep things balanced, I went with a menswear meets milkmaid vibe. This shirt is a little on the bulky side, so I paired it with cropped flares so as not to overwhelm the rest of my look.
I also wanted to keep the hair off my shoulders, as well as girly up the look a bit. I styled my hair in a braid crown (tutorial coming soon!) and went with a bold lip and pearl earrings.
Now, let's talk about these shoes. You guys, these shoes are probably the best decision I've ever made in my life. I absolutely love them and can't wait to wear them all fall and winter long! Expect to see these many, many more times. I rounded out the entire outfit with a structured and masculine bag and shades.
I fell in love with this top from Hello Dolly, a favorite local shop of both of ours (see other Hello Dolly pieces we've styled here and here). This fun take on a white button down is made of a more flowy organic material and has a super fun lace off the shoulder detail that wraps around the middle of the top.
The shirt goes really well with skinny jeans and flats for a more casual look, but I also had fun styling this playful '90s-inspired look. To play up that throwback vibe, a button front swingy skirt with daisies nicely balanced out the top. Chunky black heels are a perfect mix of throwback and modern that will go effortlessly from summer to fall.
A matte mauve lip color, and hair twisted back to the side really help reinforce the theme, and a fringe-y blush purse adds to the flowy whimsical nature of the ensemble.
As you can see, white shirts don't have to be boring! There are so many stylish and unique options of white redux tops and endless ways to style them. What are your favorite ways to style a basic white button down?
