STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Knot it Up

Over the decades, the white button-down has deservedly earned its place as a closet must-have. Whether worn by itself with a pair of dark skinnies or tucked into your favorite skirt, this classic never gets old – it’s versatile, crisp and perfectly chic. With that being said, today’s look is all about finding ways to reinvent this beloved top and finding new ways to bring it into this new season.

Although this look is so impeccably put together from head-to-toe, it was the knot at the bottom that really caught my attention. Instead of buttoning the shirt up or leaving it completely open, this Fashionista’s decision to tie the ends makes for a distinctive character that is refreshingly cool. Yes, it is a throwback to the 1980s, but she keeps the outfit modern with the clean lines of her tank, cropped jeans and oxfords. And, lastly, it would be an injustice to not mention her statement-worthy hair. A great presence comes from utilizing every outlet to be creative and unique and that is exactly what she has done.

If there is one retailer’s aesthetic that this Fashionista epitomizes it would have to be Vince, which offers a complete line of luxe staples with a fresh sensibility. Their oversized silk blouse would make a great addition to any wardrobe, as well as their shrunked striped classic shirt. The faded stripe and relaxed fit make it look like an item that you have loved for years. Also, check out J.Crew for their signature shirts, such as this stretch perfect shirt. The extra-soft fabric would allow you to tie a knot and achieve a look as classic and confident as this Fashionista.
