Suit, no --> Button up

I always like to see how different people incorporate this or that trend in their wardrobe. And of course if I notice something new channelling on the runways  or something not-so-new but which I totally adore seen on the streets, I’m immediately rushing  to dig into my closet to find out whether I can somehow interpret the trend I like. The website WhoWhatWear running by the two unbelievably talented and definitely strikingly stylish ladies, Katherine Power and Hillary Kerr is a huge source of inspiration and most up-to-date information about the world of fashion. Few weeks ago “button ups” took a spot of their story. I can’t agree more with the WWW team that a button-up is an absolute essential for any wardrobe due to its versatility. It can be transformed to adopt any season’s trend. I totally adore how all these fashionable ladies chosen for the style board wore this “must-have” piece.
Soooo, logically… I went to my bottomless closet to see what do I have there. After spending quite some quality time going through my stuff I found a few cute pieces which are definitely my life-savers.
1.      Zara deep blue silk shirt
2.      Asos butterflies silky shirt
3.      Zara classy white silk shirt
4.      Sinequanone  deep purple silk bow shirt
5.      Zara ruffled collar silk shirt
These button-ups are irreplaceable for me. Whether I wear one of them tucked into a pair of tailored pants or flowing with a pair of skinny jeans, whether I add it to a pencil skirt or shirts in a bright hue, whether I keep it laidback or layer a few necklaces to give a boho vibe – a button-up always looks incredibly stylish and adds the perfect amount of sophistication to any outfit.
As you’ve probably noticed I tend to have more simple, classy pieces in one color, though I totally enjoy creating a youthful and fun outfit by wearing a patterned button-up.
Well, if my message is not clear yet I just say it out loud: Go and Get One! And QUICK!

                                                                                   One of my fav button ups

Меня всегда завораживает то, как люди по-разному адаптируют ту или иную тенденцию моды под свой стиль. Одна и та же вещь преображается до неузнаваемости в зависимости от человека или наряда. Часто, какая-либо деталь или тренд поражает мое воображение, я сразу бегу к своему шкафу и, зарывшись в него с головой, пытаюсь понять, могу ли я интерпретировать приглянувшуюся мне вещь под свой образ. Вдохновением является все: показы моды, страницы журналов, реклама, архитектура, безумно влияет на меня street style и несметное количество блогов и интернет сайтов.
Сайт, созданный двумя архи стильными и талантливыми девушками, Katherine Power и Hillary Kerr, -неисчерпаемый источник, идей и последних трендов. Несколько недель назад под их модный прицел попали рубашки, обычные рубашки. Кажется, что в них особенного? Я не могу не согласиться с редакторами WWW, что рубашка – одна из самых необходимых вещей в гардеробе, наверное, в большей степени благодаря ее универсальности, сходству с хамелеоном. Ее можно адоптировать под любую тенденцию моды, стиль и вкус.
Логично, что после такого воодушевляющего описания , я бодрым шагом направилась к своему шкафу, чтобы посмотреть, что скрывают его недры.  После достаточно длительного времени, бесспорно проведенного с толком, в нем нашлось несколько интересных экземпляров. 
1.      Zara темно-синяя шелковая рубашка
2.      Asos шелковая рубашка с узором в виде бабочек
3.      Zara классическая белая шелковая рубашка
4.      Sinequanone  фиолетовая рубашка с бантом
5.      Zara рубашка с волнистым  воротником
Эти рубашки незаметными для меня. Волшебная палочка, ковер-самолет и шапка-невидимка вместе взятые не выручают так, как эти тоненькие шелковые предметы. Заправленная ли в брюки или джинсы, в сочетании с юбкой-карандаш или яркими шортами, застегнутая на все пуговицы или фривольно выправленная, рубашка добавляет именно ту необходимую долю  утонченности и классики наряду.
В моем гардеробе преобладают однотонные рубашки, простого покроя. Хотя мне нравится свежий и немного игривый образ, создаваемый рубашками с замысловатым узором или ярким рисунком.
