1 Button Up, 10+ Ways
One of the most frustrating things is when there is a clothing item that I can only think to style one way. In fact, nine times out of ten, I won’t buy it if that’s the case. I’m all about making sure I can get plenty of use out of that one piece. Bonus points if it can be worn in multiple seasons, and double bonus points if it can be styled over ten ways. [Triple bonus points if it’s on sale, and quadruple bonus points if Shawn isn’t home when the UPS man arrives with it.]
I’m always trying to think outside the box for new ways that I can style existing pieces in my closet. A common piece in a working woman’s wardrobe is a button up shirt. If there was ever a question about whether or not this could be a versatile item, we’re crushing any of those concerns today.
So, today we’re taking one, classic, white button up shirt, and styling it over ten ways for work. Board meetings, Tuesday client calls, or casual Fridays- a button up shirt can easily work for all of the above. If deciding what to wear for work was giving you a problem before, hopefully you’ve got a few of these items in your closet and you’ll come away with some new ideas on ways to style them!
For those of you that are looking for a new button-up to add to your wardrobe, or maybe a new sweater or vest to layer with, Macy’sFall Fashion Event & Fall Home Sale is running now through September 30th. Many items are 20% off with code FALL, which makes it the perfect time to stock up on basic pieces that can be worn multiple ways. Plus, Macy’s has free shipping on orders $99 or more, or free shipping on EVERY order as long as you add a beauty item!
Without further ado, let’s take a look at all the ways we can give a button up new life in the office, with items you probably already have in your closet. I present to you over ten ways to style a button up shirt for work!

When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
