6 Ways to Spice up your White Button-Up

Helloooo my loves! What’s everyone getting up to this Easter long weekend? I was fortunate enough to get it off work, so I’m planning to hit up the Plenty Warehouse Sale, gym, film, clean my apartment, go to a friend’s bday dinner and if it’s sunny on Sunday go hiking or golfing!:)

Today I wanted to share 6 ways you can spice up your classic white button-up! I’m sure many of you already own one, but if you don’t ladies, I recommend you pick one up ASAP this Spring. Look for one that is a little over-sized with a soft fabric. If yours is a little stiff, try throwing it in the dryer for a bit. Not too long though, you don’t want it to shrink. ;) Alright, let’s jump into my 6 styling TIPS!

Tip 1: Tie it in a knot. This will give you that casual/ laid-back look! Plus if you want to show a little skin for those warmer days it’s perfect! ;)

Tip 2: Rock the half tuck. I LOVEEE this look! It’s so effortless and put together. Just unbutton the last 2-3 buttons and tuck one side in- I prefer the side without the buttons!



Tip 3: Roll up the sleeves. Seems pretty basic, but it’ll give you a more relaxed feel to your outfit.

Tip 4: Add some arm candy! Now that you’ve rolled up your sleeves, your wrist is looking a little bare, so a nice stack of jewelry is always a good idea! My go-to lately has been my Marc Bale watch and The Peach Box bangle! They pair so nicely together, and I have been obsessed with silver accessories lately! I think I have switched sides hehe (sorry gold!) PS: Both Marc Bale and The Peach Box have 30% OFF right now for the Easter weekend! Use their code Easter-Flash-30 :)

Tip 5: Throw on a sexy bralette under your button-up. I’m wearing one of those 2 strap bralettes just to have it peak through a little! #HELLO ;)


Tip 6: Style it with edgier pieces. Think leather jackets (vest in my case), ripped jeans, leather skirt, oversized denim jackets, chunky ankle boots, etc.
