Button-ups are one of the most versatile articles of clothing out there. They can be worn formal or everyday, tucked in or loose, fancy or casual. They’re worth owning a closet-full! In fact, I do.
One of the cutest ways to wear a button-up is under a shirt or sweater. Pairing the right button-up with the right shirt is as easy as counting to 1-2-3. Here is my best advice for wearing button-ups and shirts/sweaters together:
This red shirt goes extremely well with black-and-white polka-dots. Red + polka-dots go together almost better than cream and coffee. Wait a minute . . . I’m almost second guessing that.

Polka-dot button-up – The Limited
Necklace – Kohl’s
Bracelet bangle – Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary Gift Shop
The pink and grey go together very, very well. The itty-bitty stripes in the button-up add just the right amount of detail, for me that is.

Grey, striped button-up – One Step Up
Jean skirt – Gap
This grey sweater is the perfect thing for a button-up. The v-neck begs for a collar and the comfy-ness of the sweater screams for the crisp-ness of a button-up. The grey sweater and black-and-white striped button-up result in a very simple, classy look. Wear a brown belt, a funky colored scarf and bottom (skirt, jeans, etc.), and brown boots for a twist in color and style.

Now for the tiny details. The bottom of the sweater adds a lot of interest. Make sure it’s sticking out for a balance in layers.
The sleeves can either be rolled up, tucked away, or just sticking out. They’re all lovely!
