I don’t need more, but I almost always see the one style variation I don’t have…they vary by:
- peplum or nah
- comfy or crisp
- darts or nah
- sleeve length/absence
Button ups can easily be boring so I aim for excess with my accessories…there will almost always be a statement necklace, huge brooch, or bold scarf.
Portofinos from Express – when they are on sale – are a fave…I can count on the Original Fit to work with muscled-up shoulders and lats. Honestly, they make pretty good button up blouses in general. They work well with:
- leggings in a pinch
- under looser cardis/sweaters
- tucked or half tucked or un-tucked
- belted or nah
- [they are semi-sheer so layering is a must]
As with any button up, they just need a little extra via accessories…
I like pieces that let me do what I want, when I want. I’m just that way. I hate when a thing can only be worn in this one way; in this one outfit; to this one place. SNORE and wasted money.
