How To Wear Simple Pieces: The Classic White Button Up

Posted in Fashion by Jessica

So, you look into your closet full of clothes and think, “I have absolutely nothing new to wear.” You may find yourself window shopping more often than being able to buy anything new for your wardrobe (being a college student on a budget I know exactly how that feels…). Nevertheless, there is always something you can do with what you already have; Such as creating several ways you could wear a simple piece in your closet. So here’s a video of five outfits I put together wearing the same classic white button up I purchased from H&M. One simple shirt for $12.90, five different outfits – it’s an awesome deal, right? (I bought 3 different colors!) It’s barely a 3 minute video. I would love to keep my videos quick & straight to the point for your enjoyment and our generations short attention span. (:

In case you missed the subtitles in the video, here’s detailed information about the outfits:

P.S. – You might not want to wear the shirt consecutively.
