Trend Spotting: All Buttoned Up

Nerd-chic button-downs buttoned up were all over the fall runways (like at the adorable Timo Weiland presentation, left), and lest you mock the look, let me tell you: My very own collar is buttoned all the way up today and I’ve received several compliments and I don’t even think they were being sarcastic! (I paired mine with a motorcycle jacket, kind of a fun juxtaposition.) It feels like kind of a fresh way to wear an old white shirt, and it looks especially great layered under a sweater or a jacket. Bonus: There’s something about having your collar fastened that makes you look totally put-together, even if you kind of got dressed in the dark this morning. Ahem. [Refinery 29]
