All wardrobes need a combination of basics (wardrobe workhorses) and interest pieces. I often get so excited about adding garments that have that "wow" factor: print, colour, texture, shine; that I can fall into the trap of neglecting some of the pieces that lay the foundation or building blocks for some fabulous outfit creation. Recently, I added a silky white button-up to my wardrobe (I purchased the H&M one you'll find in the linked catalog below) and I have been amazed how frequently it's already been worn. It works well under dresses (such as slip or tank style), sweatshirts or sweaters, or paired with a printed trouser or pencil skirt. I also love the way it looks when done in a monochromatic look such as with a midi skirt or jeans. The possibilities are endless!
While I do love the look of a crisp, white button-up, the silkier version allows for layering without bulk. Some of these are such an affordable price-point, it won't break the bank to have two white button ups in your closet...remember, it's all about cost-per-wear and making the most with what is already hanging in your closet. I've rounded up a few that are in stores at the moment in this catalog.
