Will You Borrow Button-Ups From The Boys?


It’s a new year, and what better way to wipe the slate clean than with a crisp white men’s shirt? For Spring, designers focused on classic sportswear, and they put that perennial favorite, the button-up, front-row and center. At Akris and Dries Van Noten, seriously oversized shirts—worn as a day dress and over a sequined skirt, respectively—riffed on the borrowed-from-the-boyfriend look. Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren based their entire collection on the men’s shirt, though in typical V&R fashion, the results were anything but basic: A cuffed oxford paired with black pants seemed simple enough from the front, but it turned out to have a cascading train in back. There were also plenty of more straightforward options, including Michael Kors‘ untucked take. With so many designers embracing the timeless trend this season, maybe we can live out our Mad Men fantasy (well, one of them, anyway) and keep a stack of pressed shirts in our desk drawer—just like Don Draper.

    White oxford shirts are always appropriate and chic. Those in luxe fabrics and flattering cuts are interesting updates on the classic.

    Over the christmas holidays I was ready to go out, but shockingly shrunk my fave zara blouse. Borrowed my older brother’s white shirt and looked equally as good. I have always loved a button down so am looking forward to spring/summer.

    I think the white shirt is a great trend for this season. There are so many different kinds of whit shirts like military or sheer or with a big tail traveling down the back if you really want to go crazy. Each type of shirt is for a different type of woman so it is for a large range of people and is a great asset to the minimalism trend.
