One essential in my wardrobe that I will never stop buying is Button Up Shirts!! It is one of those wardrobe staples that you will NEVER stop wearing and has such versatility. I wear button up shirts as cover ups at the beach. I love how it gives this Amalfi Coast chicness to your beachside outfit. Wear them with skinny jeans untucked as I've done here for a casual yet polished look. Tucked into high waisted jeans for a Jane Birkin vibe, my favorite! With a pencil skirt for the office... The possibilities are endless!
As far as what fabrics you should own: 1. definitely a chambray, you'll get SO much wear out of this one! A chambray button up is perfect over a summer dress intead of a jacket! 2. A light weight white cotton or linen button up. Classic and will take you from office to weekend wear perfectly. 3. Try something with a pattern or pinstripe like this one from Zara but stick to prints/colors that will still work well with your existing wardrobe.
As always I've rounded up some favorite options at every price point below, happy shopping!
