3, 4 Ways To Style Your White Button-down Shirt

"Elegance is not standing out but being remembered"- Giorgio Armani

Because 1, 2 Ways To Style Your White Button-down Shirt was such a favorite, we're back with another one!

It can not be over emphasized. A white button-down shirt is the real deal. Its tailored shape brings elegance to both casual and formal ensembles alike.

There really aren't a lot of wardrobe essentials that we lean on more than this statement piece. I know I said that about the basic white tee and maybe a couple of other fashion items, but stay with me here. Okay?

This time I decided to take it up a notch (or I'd like to think that's what I did).

In the first look which is my favorite of the two, I have on an Ankara pinafore over my white button-down shirt. This had me reminiscing on my secondary school days
 Funny enough, I couldn't wait to graduate from Junior Secondary just so I could get out of wearing pinafores. Now they're stylish. Yay! Fashion. 

For the second look which is also my favorite look (Lol. I'm allowed to have two favorite looks, yeah?), I drew inspiration from the American preppy style.
 I paired my white button-down shirt with grey pants and a green college cashmere cardigan.

Both looks are very wok appropriate among other things.

Now, I'd like to think that about everyone of our readers would have bought a White Button-down Shirt by now. Yes? How have you styled it? Do let us know in the comment section.

It's Tee

  2. I love the pinafore....I think I'll try it out����

  3. Really love the one paired with the Ankara gown. I do have a button down shirt and I once paired with my dashiki turned out nice tho but I didn't take blog worthy pictures. Keep Slay-Spiring!!!

  4. You smile is so infectious. I love how you always miss Ankara with other fabrics.

  5. i love the first look. I would really love to see what the back looks like.

  6. I'm crushing on the pinafore. I know it's about the shirt but I can't take my eyes off that pinafore. So fitted and well-tailored. Nice nice.

  7. I'm definitely sewing a pinafore next...both looks are mouth-watering. I agree with work-appropriate but maybe on a Friday.

 I feel the need to apologize in advance for the number of Ankara outfits that you'll find here. After garri (well, any form of swallow really) and soup, my next favorite thing is Ankara, closely followed by retro prints.
In this post, we're styling a basic white button-down shirt in two refreshing ways.
Now, a white button-down shirt is a wardrobe essential. Like a little black dress or a pair of very flattering jeeans, it is a fashion must-have.
It is chic through all seasons, for all ages and it works for about just every event.
For the first look, I tucked my white button-down shirt into an Ankara pencil, midi length skirt for a tailored appeal.
This simple ensemble can work for the office on a Monday or a Friday as the case may be.
Aiming for a more casual feel in the second look, I decided to pair my white button-down shirt with a pair of…

Dressing Appropriately for Your Body Type

"The dress should follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress" - Hubert de Givenchy
Hello everyone! Long time no see. I'm sorry, life has been, well, life.
Over the months, I've gotten E-mails with questions in the line of "Oh this looks so good, do you think it would look good on me too". Then, there's my friend and flat mate Ehimen who doesn't wear any colors except black because she thinks they''ll make her look big. I thought about these and I decided to put together a little guide to help you dress appropriately for your body type.
Now, essentially, there are four body types; the hour glass, the apple, the banana and the pear.

THE HOURGLASS You know you're hourglass when you're extremely curvy with a tiny waist.
Work towards highlighting your curves and not hiding them. You can achieve this via belts.
For bottoms, wear a lot of pencil skirts and wide-legged pants.

Wrap dresses are perfect.
For tops, …
