WHITE SHIRT REDUX
One of the trends I really love for spring and summer is the creative reinvention of the white button down. Or as the fashion set is calling it, the white shirt redux. For quick clarification–redux means “brought back or revival.” Now I’m not saying that white shirts ever really went anywhere, but I predict we’ll be seeing white shirts worn in a variety of new ways and morphed into unique shapes and silhouettes. You guys know by now that button ups are a staple of mine, and I’m always up for a styling challenge… especially if it involves reinventing a classic!
Designers showed button downs redone in a variety of shapes and styles, showing everything from ruffles to slashes! I got creative with one of my simple white shirts by layering it underneath an old halter top of mine. At first, I had it fully buttoned underneath the halter, but then started futzing with it and somehow ended up with this peekaboo effect that I kind of love!
In order to make this look (semi) work appropriate, I went with a mismatched shorts suit and patent loafers. Also, would you believe me if I told you I got this blue striped halter top 10 years ago when I was an intern at Rebecca Taylor?? This is why I have such a hard time getting rid of clothes!
Would you recreate this look? How do you feel about the white shirt redux trend? Let me know in the comments!
