Fall Trend: All Buttoned Up

 This season, shirts underwent a rework - classic, clean cut shirts were buttoned up to the top, providing a womanly, sophisticated look. Teamed with tailored blazers, chunky knits and full skirts, the overall impression was feminine with a touch of old school glamour. The easiest way to get this look is to dig out a classic white shirt (the one we all have at the back of our wardrobes) and team it with an over-sized slouchy sweater, or pair with tailored trousers and heels for a look reminiscent of what appeared on the catwalks at Chloé.

While many designers gave the buttoned up shirt look their own stamp (vampy at Preen, womanly at Dries van Noten, layered at Karen Walker), the overall impression was a step away from the disheveled looks which have captured our hearts of late, and a return to more clean lines teamed with simplistic, well made pieces. Here is a look at where the trend appeared and how to wear it.

How to Wear the Look

1 - this is a blouse which is sewn together with a chunky cardigan -  the best part of this is that it's two pieces in one. 

2 - This season hemlines dropped to below the knee, and this is the perfect length for winter - just add some knee-high socks and boots.

3 - these suede boots by Fendi are a perfect fit with this look, and would look equally chic dolled up with a floral dress or worn to work with tailored slacks.

4 - small but long chain purses are back in vogue - this one by Lanvin features one of this season's most prominent bag prints - leopard print.
