It is pretty obvious and probably juvenile to say this; but, I'm going to go ahead to say it! "I love fashion". Though the intro statement is a tad bit corny, the direction I am going in will soon make sense. I love fashion for three reasons: Original, classic and Reemergence. Trends are repetitive and there is nothing wrong with being inspired by an original idea. Making the idea your own is the trick! It is only February, but I have seen the reemergence of many fashion trends. From the Paris Hilton inspired matching sweat suits, to the throwback band tee shirts- styles are returning for 2018! Trends come and go, but finding ways to switch things up is the benefit of fashion. The most classic of classic looks is the combination of a white button-down and denim. The look has been conventional for the everyday girl for years and I decided to try the trend and make it my own!
A white button-down shirt is essential in the everyday women's closet. EVERY WOMEN NEEDS ONE! No, I am not being dramatic but, I'm going to quickly analyze why. For one, women have to appreciate the versatility of a white button down. The staple is perfect for going to an interview or for professional wear. It is also perfect for a casual day at work or for a weekend brunch. For the trend of 2017-2018 women have been challenged to make the white button-down look her own. This trend is known as "Manipulating". For this look I wanted to find a way to make this classic trend more cultured and sexy. I wanted this to be the outfit you see on a girl in a night out in Los Angeles, and realize that she is SOMEBODY in the industry.
The white button down came from a surprise find at Forever 21. That's right Forever 21 is where I found this cute chic shirt. Now manipulating button ups takes a lot of talent. It takes creative direction, designing skills and perseverance. Luckily, for those who do not have that or the time every morning to make shift your button up, Forever 21 has this shirt option. The button up is naturally a mid drift and has the tie section automatically added onto it. Thus creating, the illusion like I hand stitched and folded the classic button down to a sexy chic crop top. It is safe to say, that this shirt is my absolute favorite! Next to the look is the hip hugging boyfriend jeans from Eden Sky, an LA based online boutique. I am guilty of wearing these pants a lot because they are my classic jeans. Every women, even men have those pants that they love wearing because they go with everything and fit you all in the right places. To add some sex appeal to the boyfriend jeans add a cute belt to expose those curves of yours. Closing the look is my classic black ankle boots from Forever 21.
The secret of wearing a classic button up and denim is all in the accessories. The accessories controls the flow of the wardrobe. To switch up the classic style I added the black belt with gold trim, my gold chains courtesy of Honey B Gold and my classic black Fendi shades.
Style is all about twists and turns, taking the original and making it your own! I encourage every person with interest in fashion to take the challenge of trying a classic outfit like white and denim and making it your own.
