Style File: Button Up
No longer nerdy, it's suddenly cool to button the top button.
There has been a slow and steady drumbeat that is being seen in menswear and women’s wear alike. It’s both a bit controversial and polarizing. Buttoning your top button was once only something done as a joke playing the part of a “nerd” for Halloween or worn by Pee Wee Herman. But now we are now seeing it constantly at Tory Burch shows and most Italian menswear lines. It creates a very clean line with elegance and sophistication. Even at J. Crew, we are seeing the trend with a necklace added under the collar. I have styled quite a few women lately for portraits and have suggested they try the trend and it always works. Love it or hate it. It’s here. Give it a try. It’s only a button.
