Let’s face it. Some closet
essentials are plain boring. The classy blazer, the little black dress,
the pantsuit, the pencil skirt, the list goes on. But I am girl that is
up for any stylistic challenge. So when Upper Canada Mall invited me to
be part of their launch of Style Sessions and suggested I style the
classy white button down shirt I was sold! Give me a challenge and I
will make sure I turn your outfit from basic to modern chic.
problem we all have with the white button down shirt is that the
options are endless, so we tend to get overwhelmed not knowing where to
start. First, you have to think about the overall look you want to
achieve. Do you want it to be preppy, classy, bold, casual? Then you can
start visualizing all the accessories and clothing items that will help
to pull that look together. Here are some of my go to items for styling
the white button shirt with:
back to the styling session, I came up with 4 ways to mix and style the
White Shirt; The Classy Look, Bold Look, and then playing around with
layering and accessories. In order to achieve these looks, I had my own
little shopping spree at Upper Canada Mall where I picked up some items
from my favourite stores; Banana Republic, Forever21, Topshop, Aritzia
and Hudson’s Bay. If you are one of those gals that shopping overwhelms
them, why not make a list of all the items you want to wear your white
button shirt with beforehand? That way when you reach the mall you can
minimize the stress of not knowing where to begin. Customer service at
UCM is super friendly and very quick to give a hand if you are in need
of a second opinion.
can see my video below how I took the classy white button down shirt
and styled it according to my own personal style in 4 easy, effortless
ways. Key is to always remember that the white button down shirt is so
versatile you can do anything with it.
am dying to hear what you think of the video, it was definitely an
experience like no other. Also don’t forget to check out the post on Upper Canada Mall blog. Many thanks to Upper Canada Mall for having me
as part of their Style Secrets video series. It was a wonderful
experience, and a great reminder that there is no challenge you cannot
conquer. Even stylistic ones.
