A basic white button-up shirt is a staple piece every woman should have in her wardrobe. You know what’s funny though? I’ve literally NEVER purchased one. Not until I found this one in one of my Le Tote boxes. I loved it immediately because of the extra added details! They give the shirt an elevated vibe and no so basic work blouse that everyone has.

White Button-up Blouse
I’ve always thought nothing looks more chic than a crisp, white button-up blouse. There’s just something about them, I think it’s the versatility! You can wear them alone, or layered underneath a sweater with just the collar sticking out, tuck them in to to a pair of high-waisted trousers or a pencil skirt, the possibilities are literally endless. I’ve always thought they were super chic and such an important piece to have in your wardrobe. That being said, they can be a little basic, and since I like a little more interest or uniqueness in my outfits, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite elevated white button-up blouses!
I really love all of these different white button-up blouses. It’s fun to have be able to elevate your staple wardrobe pieces so that they still seem unique. Some of my favorite ways to elevate a white button-up blouse are by purchasing ones that have simple but unique details. I love the ruffled collar on this one that I got from Le Tote so much, because it adds a feminine vibe to an otherwise masculine shirt. If ruffles are too much for you, find something that has some details on the cuffs, or a bell sleeve can be a great option. Also, try to switch up the way you wear your blouse! Unbutton it halfway, take your arms out of the sleeves, and tie them around you chest as a tube top in hotter weather. Or you can layer a lace bralette underneath and leave the blouse unbuttoned so the details show. You can even try layering a crop top OVER the white button-up for a unique, structured look!
This week I’m excited because I’m only working 3 days #Hallelujah! Are you working a short week this week? Let me know in the comments and have an awesome Monday!
