What: Buttoned-to-the-top shirts and blouses look immediately prim with a dash of coy schoolgirl mischievousness. From crisp, cotton shirt collars, slick leather or silk bows, portraits are framed with this easy styling tweak.
Where:
Proenza Schouler, Paul and Joe, Cacharel, Chloe and Christopher Kane.
Why: The time is right for a return to uniform dressing, why not the school uniform? Rebel against plunged-to-there necklines of recent past by unexpectedly buttoning up.
How: Best worn with menswear fluid bottoms, 90’s graphic novelty denim or, in it’s purest form, a kilty-type mini A-line skirt. Oh, and don’t forget to tuck in your top and pair with regulation penny loafers, tassels optional. Class dismissed.
