Button-Up Shirt

Go for sexy look

The button up shirt of old is known to be formal and a bit boring. These days, if you want to look sexier in your button up, go for shapely ones that are made of silk. This will ensure a more seductive feel as you wear it.

Maximize its shape

You can take advantage of the unique shape of a button-up shirt, which makes it a favorite wear for any woman. Whether you wear it with layered clothing, or as a main outfit; a button up will perfectly deliver the look that you want to exude for the day. This is the reason why button up shirts for women are known to be the more sophisticated version of the shirt.

Wear a sleeveless button-up

Go chic and stylish with a white-colored and sleeveless button up shirt. You can make it sassier by tying a small knot at the end. No need to buy one as you can do it yourself. Just make sure that you cut cleanly along the seams of the sleeves. Replace the old buttons with bigger ones to optimize your shirt’s look.

Change to oversized button-ups

Traditional button-up shirts can be a stuffy wear. Try to veer away from the slouchy, classical version by going for an oversized shirt that’s made in light silk or linen. This is a perfect top to match a pair of skinny pants and flat, black booties. Wear a sleek, fitting jacket and bold jewelry such as a big ring or chain of necklace to complete your new look.

Add life to your office button-up shirt

It is a usual company wear, which is why it tends to become commonplace. You can make your white button-up more exciting and in tune with fashion trends by using a cute cardigan or wearing some pretty pumps. Since it’s meant for office wear, keep the outfit simple; but you can tinker with the colors and style in other aspects, specifically the accessories.

How to Wear Old Clothing Trends in a Stylish Way

Reviving old fashion trends can be a serious art – but it’s worth doing; since if it is executed properly, you will find yourself looking cool and fashionable without looking outmoded, or even gaudy. Remember that trends of the old can be an attention-grabber, especially to the younger set; hence you must keep it to the minimum.

Indeed, you might have used old yet trendy clothes that had seen the days – they’re just inside your closet and waiting to be revived. The 80’s trends are quite loud, and so while they are popular, others would want to stay away from them. The 90’s fashion trends are more subdued compared to the decades previous to it – which is why a lot of women prefer to reuse some of their 90’s clothing and make them modern and fresh.

Old Clothing Trends

Here are easy steps to using old fashion trends and transforming them into fresher versions:

Properly match baggy clothes

Nowadays, you can’t don baggy pants or shirts without being criticized to be wearing ill-fitting clothes. To keep a baggy jacket up-to-date, you must at least wear a simple white cotton shirt underneath. If you do this, it will minimize the attraction that the jacket already gains from onlookers. You can try matching loose jackets or shirts with the in-clothing of today, such as a pair of pencil cut pants.

Transform bland colors

Colors of old shirts or blouses eventually fade away. You can do some perking up on these worn out clothing items by dying them with bright new hues. By doing this, you give the clothing a refreshing look, making it look brand new again. While shirts of previous trends are perfect in the 70’s, especially if the sleeves are folded up many times; you can make them trendy again these days by matching them with polo and jackets.

Vintage Accessories

Finally, whereas the fashion trends before are mixing and matching vintage accessories with formal wear, the current popular style among women is to use vintage necklaces and bracelets with simple apparel, like neutral colored blouses and straight cut skirts. Vintage accessories are great in transforming even the most ordinary look into something fabulous.

Print clothing – once is enough

Prints make a bold statement. Hence, be reminded not to overdo the wearing of prints unless you want to look like a fashion disaster. For instance, if you wear a leopard print blouse, this is enough print in your ensemble. Make everything else simple to complement it perfectly. For an animal print top, match this with simple shorts. Cap off with minimal or even no accessory.

Minimize Accessories

It must be known that prints in dresses are loud – they catch people’s attention. If you love that the focus is on you, printed dress will do the trick. However, you must be minimal with accessories. The best accessories are small simple items – whether the print on your dress is small-sized, or bold and blaring ones.

Large-sized women must go for small prints

This has been a universal rule ever since; if you have a wide body, go for small-sized prints as they will make you appear smaller. On the other hand, large bold prints will make you look wider; and so, this is the best prints for women that have skinny frames. If you’re petite and thin, take advantage of big prints to achieve the illusion of a fuller body.

Choose prints on proper cut and styled dresses

When wearing animal prints, avoid cuts that reveal much of your body. Likewise, shun from printed dresses that are ill-fitting. Pick one that’s knee-length and properly fits you; this will offer a simple yet fashionable statement.

Finally, when wearing printed clothes, you must avoid loose or baggy ones as they will make you bigger than you really are. The right print dress, when worn properly, can help you to flaunt your curves. Go for ones that fit you perfectly as well.
