Looking back at old photos from a few years ago could have you gasping at your outfit choices and make you think “did I really go out of the house in that?” Fashion changes throughout the years and everyone’s style preferences tend to change along with it. Styles may come back from the past, but in new and innovative ways. And lately the new trend seems to be taking classic styles and revamping them to fit the latest era.
For the white button up, a classic shirt in any women’s closet, that upgrade has just begun. This shirt is safe and reliable for any occasion; the office, lunch with friends or strolling around the park. There are many different ways to switch up and wear this classic shirt.
But now this simple look is being updated to fit the new age of fashion. This reworked shirt is back in season but with a twist. On the latest spring runways the shirt was transformed in many different ways, in which many may think are weird.
The shirt was seen wrapped around models bodies, stuck up over their shoulder, and made enlarged so that it was sweeping against the floor. The brand Monse, worn by celebrities such as Lupita Nyong’o, feels that draped shirting is the newest trend soon to be sweeping across the nation. The point of the new look is to take the shirt away from seen as “preppy” and form it into a new context.
Other designers have also come up with different ways to reinvent the classic look by adding different types of volume and details. The new designs provide an artful twist to a rather modest and boring piece. The new reworked shirt possesses a look that can be transformed from daytime at work to night time out for some drinks. The styling options are now endless.
Designers are beginning to make the shirt “exciting again” and people can expect to see it reworked in stores all over. But don’t just go looking or the classic white shirt, instead you will see stripes, wrapping, knots, and big statement sleeves.
