You know that one item of clothing you own that you only wear one way with the same head-to-toe accessories and outfit every time? Today I’m inspiring you to find creative ways to re-wear your clothes and make multiple outfits from one key piece!
The spotlight piece for today’s post is a lovely ombre button up from Abercrombie and Fitch. (Yes, that throwback teen store actually has super cute clothes that no longer sport the moose logo or the enormous A&F lettering.) I like how light and flowy this top feels on my body and I love how the blue ombre resembles a watercolor canvas. The ruffle detailing on the sleeves and neckline is also a refreshing change from the standard cuffs and collar. PLUS it’s on clearance right now for $23.20! Yass.
Button up shirts are super versatile because of the plethora of ways you can wear and style them. You can button, unbutton, tuck, untuck, and tie them to create different vibes depending on the day and your mood. Check out the multitude of ways I’ve styled this one shirt below!
This look is for the days you roll out of bed and just don’t want to think about what you have to wear. It’s simple and casual – just jeans and a shirt with some fun, comfy keds.
The key to this one is selecting the right shirt tuck to fit your style and mood. Here are a couple of different tuck methods that I like to play around with!
I love completely changing up a shirt by un-buttoning the bottom and tying it into a cropped shirt. Pair it with a chino shorts, a panama hat, and strappy block heels, and you’ve got yourself a completely different summer look.
Full disclosure – this hat was purchased from the kids section at Gap. Yep. It was definitely not the first time I’ve purchased from the kids section at a store and it certainly won’t be the last. The one I’m wearing is in a size L/XL and I feel like I have an average adult sized head…if anything it might be slightly bigger than average. My point is, if my head can fit in a kid’s hat, yours can too. shirt: Abercrombie and Fitch
shorts: J.Crew Factory
shoes: American Eagle (same)

Casual Graphic Tee
Pairing a button up with a graphic tee is a great way to add layers to an outfit. This pairing is especially great for summer outings that go on throughout the night, where you may want an extra thin layer to keep you warmer when the sun goes down.
By the way, I’m absolutely in love with these scalloped denim shorts from H&M. They are high waisted and super flattering on the booty. (Sorry I didn’t snap you a pick of the rear.) Don’t forget these run in European sizes! I’m wearing a size 4 here and it’s still a tad small.
I also need to give a shoutout to these Adidas sneakers. I like the perforated stripes that are less in-your-face-Adidas-logo, unlike the black striped ones that are so popular at the moment. Also, these shoes use the Adidas cloudfoam in the soles, which makes you literally feel like you’re walking on clouds when you’re wearing them. They also come in pink and black!
