Fashion and style, albeit two slightly different concepts, are perfect expressive outlets for the wild hearts. Style takes fashion and converts it into something personalized, unique, and meaningful. Together, they form a special synergy that lets the wearer run free with creativity, and that’s the part that intrigues me the most about fashion. A dress can be worn as a blouse. A shirt can be worn backwards. That’s just the proverbial tip of the iceberg, but you get the idea.
When I came across this contrast trim top, I knew I wanted to put my own spin on it. The built-in collar and balloon cuffed sleeves already differentiate this button-down collared shirt from others, but I envisioned taking it a step further. Turning it backwards so that the buttons faced the back was a simple yet effective move. Whichever way it was designed to be worn, I’m just delighted that I can wear it in multiple styles… and this applies to all of my other button-down shirts too.
With white collared tips peeking in the front and buttons streaming down the back, this collared shirt easily transformed into a feminine yet bold closet staple. Cue the final touch of draping a men’s bomber jacket over the outfit just casually enough to make a sartorial statement as well as to add one slight extra barrier against the February chill of New York City, and this outfit became the epitome of a chic marriage between fashion and style.
