THE BUTTON UP
Continually classic, the button up has made appearances all throughout history. This style is an essential every college student needs to have in their closet. It has been updated numerous times to reflect upon trends, but there are still some cuts that will always be in style.
Exactly what it is. A simple button-up. Get this style in basic colors such as black, white, and navy. Be sure to find a flattering fit, because this is the most basic part of your wardrobe.
Good for a night out or a casual day. Extremely light-weight, loose, and comfortable. Throw on a pair of leggings or skinny jeans and head out the door. This is a very low maintenance look.
THE SHIRT DRESS
Warm seasons call for a little leg showing, and the shirt dress is the perfect way to do it. The shirt dress can help keep things easy because of its light material and respectful length. Good for a lunch date or a shopping excursion.
THE OPEN SHOULDER
This is an extremely trendy update on the button-up, but very cute nonetheless. In this style, the sleeves have a patch cut out on your upper arm. Most of the time this style is made of a very, very light material and usually sheer.
