5 Variations of a Button-Down that you’ve Got to Have

Button down shirts for women are great because they can be stylish and professional for work, and made casual and sexy for after work drinks at the bar with friends. This season we’re seeing a new take on button down shirts. We’ve gone beyond stripes, plaid, polka dots, and solid colors to shirts with more structure, more detail, and more feminine touches.

1. Bow Button Down Shirt

Nothing says feminine chic more than a big, structural bow.

Too many ruffles can be a little off-putting, but this Banana Republic shirt has just enough to give it a little extra dose of style.

3. Puffed Sleeves

This button down is a little more risky, but it you pair it with a solid pencil skirt for work, you could make “weird” a lot more “chic.”

4. Get Swept up in this wrapped button Down

This sexy wrapped button down is perfect for any age and any style. Dress it down with leggings or dress it up with a skirt. Either way, you’ll distinguish yourself from the million other button downs in the office.

Get the West Coast Working Girl Look

When I was a kid, I always dreamed of having a job where I could dress fancy, crazy, and ultra chic.  Being an East Coaster, style always meant dresses, skirts, and high heels.  Style was often synonymous with “dressing up.”

Living on the West Coast for several years now has taught me that looking ultra chic and wildly stylish can be done in a more casual way.  In fact, combining typically “dressy” items with our casual “favorites” can result in some very cool looks.

Pairing fancy and fem pieces with a ripped pair of jeans can surprisingly take you from morning to night.

That 90’s grunge look that keeps popping up, like those leather moto jackets or those plaid shirts, can all be made appropriate for work when paired with the right classic and chic pieces.

When funky meets fem, you’ve got yourself some serious style!

Molly
