Helllooo friends! Today I’m excited to announce the first installment of a monthly series on building a better wardrobe. Each month I will highlight a wardrobe basic that every woman should have in her closet. My hope is that by the end of 2019 we will all have a foundation of basics in our closet. Today is all about the white button down blouse.
To be perfectly honest with you, until this Fall I did not have a white blouse in my closet. I can’t even remember the last time I did. Why is the white blouse important? In a classic cut, a white button down blouse is the foundation of any woman’s office attire. Since I haven’t worked in an office in a decade, that probably explains why I haven’t had one in recent years.
But a white blouse is a classic, versatile piece that can be dressed up or down and layered up. Even if you are not putting on a button down shirt under a power suit and heels every day it’s still an essential piece to building a better wardrobe. Here are two examples of how to wear a white button down blouse that are perfect for casual settings.
Dressed Down In Jeans
You can wear your white shirt tucked into a pair of jeans or knotted in front. In this instance I wore mine with distressed denim. Because I was in a casual work environment I added in heels and a luxe teddy coat to balance out the distressing in the jeans. A white button down would also look great with dark wash or black jeans, booties, or fashion sneakers.
A white button down blouse is perfect for layering under other accessories like scarves or cardigans. Swap different accessories in and out and your outfit instantly changes.
I’ve included my top white button down blouse picks in the widget below. Pick one up and let’s get started on building a better wardrobe together in 2019.
