Hey people , so todays trend post is as you may have guessed , about Button-Ups !
I am really all for button-ups this Autumn/Winter because I think they are perfect for providing that extra warmth during chilly times and at the same time they lend us that smart casual vibe.The good thing about button-up shirts is even though they are very well-tailored , they can still look feminine with the variety of choices that we get today in the market.
As always I have created a few looks incorporating this trend and hope you all will like the looks I have created for you –
So this first look is a very business oriented look. I would recommend wearing this to business meetings or lunches or anything formal.I used a black blazer and paired it up with a black button-up shirt which is quite the unusual and I like being unusual. To add a pop of colour a paired it up with a blue skater skirt and gold neck pice.The gold neckpiece brings your attention to the shirt which can otherwise get lost in the blackness of the blazer and itself. This look is better off with all black accesorries or else you may look like your trying to hard and the look will lose its sharpness.
This is my favorite look for this trend today. Its quite quirky but I still love this look because of its weird pairing up. I used a grey fitted jersey button-up top and paired it up with a maroon tulle skirt , as maroon is the colour for A/W.This look is very ‘fashion weekish’ and its will definetely make people turn around and look at you in a good way. I like the fitting of this entire outfit and I paired it with a maroon pump to match the skirt because anything else would dull the look.A black bag is a safe choice as it will contrast well with the grey and also the maroon.
This one is a very casual look , you can probably wear this on a movie-date with your boyfriend.Instead of the shirt , I used a button-up cardigan instead and I had to use maroon cause for some reason I feel maroon is the color of this season.To add a little bit of fun I added this floral skater skirt and paired it with a black wedge shoe and beige bag.Black wedges bring out the black in the skirt and beige is a neutral color so it goes well with the look.
This last look is very boyish chic , its for all the tomboys out there , and non-tomboys as well .I used this beautiful cream shade sleeveless button-up and paired it up with camo skinny pants as camo is very on-trend this season..I ‘chic’ed it up with a pair of black pointed pumps and band watch that show off the edginess of the personality and a plain simple black bag.With these accessories most of the attention goes to the outfit.
Bomber Jackets have been around the corner for quite sometime , but I’m still not over it.Throughout this cold season in Dubai , I have been clinging on to my boyfriends 2 yr old bomber !! (which he was about to throw away but I did’nt let him ). I wore it with dresses , long tees , and even long skirts.
These jackets come in so many cool varieties now , you can literally buy one for your work , your dinner date or your casual day at the grocery.
Like always , I have created 3 different looks corresponding to 3 different styles casual , girly and rock chic respectively.
The first outfit is very casual and I love this printed jacket. To bring out some colour in the look I paired it up with coloured denim , instead of the usual blue denim , I used pink cause its my favorite , you can wear what you like.To hold on to he casualness of this look , I used a black handbag and dark green pointed pumps , cause we dont want to look like an ice-cream do we?Add on a cute hairband to dress up your hair .
This is my favorite cause you know my taste is girly, I took a plain , bland jacket and paired it up with this extremely cute floral skirt .This look is very English , so I didnt add much crazy colour twists into it except for the emerald ear studs.The beautiful lace D&G bag and white buckle pumps adds to the final touch for this feminine look.
The third look is ‘rock chic’ inspired.A short bomber paired with a long striped top underneath and just , cool black , casual leggings is all I used for this look.I used a bright patterned bomber jacket to add some character to the look and paired this up with a yellow heroine handbag to match with the jacket and grey oxfords to match with rest of the outfit.Wear cool chunky accesories , dont do it too much maybe a bracelet or a necklace would do just right.
