REASON #1: THEY ARE INSANELY COMFORTABLE Their loose-fitted silhouette makes it extremely comfortable and airy. On busy days, when I'm sure I'll be running around from meeting to lecture to meeting to lecture, I throw on my trusty white button up, a pair of high-waisted dark wash denims and some brogues or oxfords for a polished look that doesn't sacrifice comfort.
DISCLAIMER: You don't need to be committed romantic relationship for this to work. All you need is a man with a shirt to steal or some money and the menswear section. I am a single pringle so I stole my little brother's button up. Creative Direction: Vanessa W. Akibate, @thegreymustard Photography: Trevor Gomo, @trevor3t
REASON #3: THEY GO WITH EVERYTHING You could wear a boyfriend button-up with anything from heels and a dress to sneakers and denim. They go from day to night, grunge to minimal, office to the artist's studio. Seriously, there are boundless outfit options that come with just this one piece of clothing. They should be a staple in everyone closets
REASON #2: THEY ARE SEXY On their own or with some shorts underneath, boyfriend button ups are extremely sexy. To dial back the sex-appeal and make them more everyday appropriate for the shy or reserved girl, slip a mini or midi silk or cotton dress over it and pair the oufit with some strappy heels, slides or platform sneakers to complete the look.
