We all know we need a good white button down in our closet – it may be the most frequently mentioned wardrobe staple. There’s a reason for that: When I finally found a well-fitting classic shirt (the Ebro from Universal Standard), I realized just how many different ways I can wear it. So when I started to see creative twists on the classic silhouette, I knew I had to expand my collection.
Layered under a blazer, this could work for even the most conservative office, but worn on its own, it is truly a statement piece. I was heading to an art opening for the Elomi Portrait Project, so I paired it with leather pants (another fall trend) and neon mules for a downtown vibe. I actually ended up wearing my strapless bra from Elomi to the event without even thinking about the brand – it is just the most comfortable one I own. Altogether, the look felt very *me*, and I love that these types of pieces are available in plus and cut to fit curves.
Asymmetric button down shirt: Eloquii (true to size)
Leather pants: Ellos (note: You may want to size up one on these, but no more than that – because they are real leather, they will stretch out)
Neon mules: Zara
