I call this look “the hot SOHO mom who just dropped her kids off at pre-school” (which reminds me of Tammy Hembrow btw), and Charles Gross would hundo-p back me up on this one! This Cali-inspired, classic white button-down + denim combo is worn by many celebrities, models, and It girls such as Miranda Kerr, Kendall Jenner, Alexa Chung, the Olsen sisters, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Victoria Beckham, Karlie Kloss, Jaime King… and the list goes on. Similar to many other looks I’ve posted, this outfit can also be easily dressed up or down by just a change of shoes or purse. If you’re ever in need of white button-down outfit inspo, simply do a google image search of celebs in white button-down’s for more pairing ideas!
Deets of this laid-back yet chic look: white button-down from Zara, high-rise light-washed denim shorts from Hollister, necklace from Follie Follie, and aviator sunglasses from Ray-Ban. I personally adore the versatility of this outfit and can confirm that it is practical and suitable for many different occasions. This picture was in fact taken before I left the house for training at a camp (I opted for a more casual purse and sneakers – the Le Pliage Large Shoulder Tote in the colour Navy from Long Champ and Stan Smith‘s in Navy) and ran some errands afterwards. If you can’t already tell from my other outfits, versatility is something I really try to put an effort into because it goes hand-in-hand with budgeting, but also because I hate being overdressed or underdressed for the wrong occasions.
Side note: If you’re extra-petite like me, Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch make great bottoms that actually fit right. I find that their sizing tends to be a tad smaller-than-average, which caters to middle school/ high school students, teenagers in general and smaller people like myself!
