White was a MAJOR trend at New York Fashion Week for Spring 2014. At the core of this trend comes the revival of the classic white shirt. This is one trend is one we can really get behind because there are so many approaches on how to wear a classic white button down that mirror the trends seen on the runways for this year. Here are a few of our favorites that keep in mind the rising temperatures and busy schedules we have here in Dallas.
The Knot: A hot trend right now is the tea-length skirt. We are seeing a ton of fabulous skirts coming through our doors, but what’s the best way to style up these long-lost cousins of the mini skirt? With a classic white button down, of course. Take a look above and you’ll see a great example of how to make this outfit more playful by creating a knot to tie off the bottom of your shirt. Paired with a longer skirt, this will give you the chic classic look with a casual playful edge. Jazz up that old white button down shirt that has had to hide under all your work blazers all winter with this slight twist on styling.
The Chic Boyfriend: We love boyfriend jeans for spring and summer. They are roomy and comfortable. Pair them with a more feminine piece like a sheer white blouse to keep your wardrobe ready for the warmer temperatures while still looking put together. This look will be complete when you throw on that pair of fabulous leopard or neon orange heels you’ve been waiting for the perfect outfit to wear them with.
The Monochromatic: One of our very favorite Spring & Summer runway trends was the monochromatic look many designers incorporated into their collections. At the core of every monochrome look was the classic white shirt. We love the monochrome look because we know many of our clients are on the go constantly. Taking a look from day to night is an important function of the looks in this trend and we think every woman can easily stay in style by using their classic white shirt as a base. Take a sleeveless white button down and layer it under a more sheer white or black button down blouse that has no collar. Pair with an embellished skirt for an easy office look that can also take you into your dinner party.
At Clothes Circuit, we have an amazing selection of white blouses for you to select from from lines like J. Crew, Banana Republic, Anne Fontaine, Elizabeth & James, Worth, Talbots, and Chico’s (to name few!). And if you’re in need of a few items to style up your classic white button down, we’ve got you covered there too. You’ll never know what treasures you may discover that will make your off the runway look one of a kind.
