They say many designers and fashion editors wear a uniform. A certain combination of clothing that is a mix of form, function and style. I have a uniform too.
Emmanuelle Alt, Editor-in-Chief- Vogue, Paris
For as long as I can remember I have loved button down shirts. It can’t be a tunic or pullover. It has to be a straight up button down. French cuffs? Yeah, I’m fine with that. But I just LOVE a button down– tucked in a variety of ways or not at all. When I’m unsure of what I want to wear, the button down never fails me. It’s my uniform.
Do you have a uniform?
I love a good button down shirt with jeans, slip on sneakers, ballet flats or even heels on some days. The beauty is in the button down. It makes me feel both efficient and sexy all at the same time and with the shift of a button.
Throw a sweater over the top for texture and color. Wear a blazer in velvet or for a pop of color. Floral blazers are big this spring and update the classic look. Rocking neutrals will never wear you wrong.
Adding vintage gold bracelets is both classic and dresses it up.
A swipe of red lip gloss punches up the look while still maintaining a classic look.
