TRANSFORMING THE TOP

September 4, 2016

Fall’s latest trend is all about the exaggerated shirt. With oversized bell sleeves, off-the-shoulder cuts, and asymmetrical knots—Fashion is lusting over reimaginations of the classic button-down shirt. But you don’t need to go on a shopping spree to get this look. With a little tucking and twisting, you can transform your simple shirt into an enticing top.

My personal favorite shirt-hack is to take the classic white button down, turn it backwards, and undo the top few buttons for an off-the-shoulder fit. Easy, peasy.

    This is stunning, especially with the pleated skirt. I tried pulling off this trick but it didn’t work as effortlessly for me :-P Practice makes perfect, I guess!

    I saw a shirt at Zara with an extra large collar that was meant exactly for this purpose.
    You pull this trend off so well and your shirt is really cool!
