I endlessly love (and wear!) classic white button-downs, but occasionally I find myself in the mood for one that isn’t so classic, but instead has a detail or two that sets it apart. Like for instance, the ruffles here, which are a bit deeper than you usually see.
And relatedly, I like the spiff tuxedo ruffles on this one.
The drop shoulder and voluminous sleeves on this pleated tunic from Cos give it a romantic vibe.
Meanwhile, the band collar and slightly cropped hem here are rather spiff.
An elegant popover with a just-deep-enough neckline.
This boxy short sleeved button-down looks cool in every respect.
And here’s another good boxy shirt with a clean and flattering A-line silhouette.
A seersucker top with a little extra length, for those times when butt coverage is the order of the day.
The tonal plaid print on this ruffle pintuck top is a nice, subtle touch.
This tie-front top just looks so breezy and cool.
The big front pockets on this utility shirt from Alex Mill are standout.
I’m slowly getting used to the puffy shoulders trend—for others, not for me—and everything else on this top is so straightforward that I feel like one could wear it without feeling like one was in costume.
A sweet, sheer-ish blouse that’d look great with a black bra underneath it.
The barely-there cheetah print here is just kind of fun.
And finally: an embroidered button-down that is so very quietly sexy when paired with a cami.
