Fashion Do: Oversized Button-Down Shirts
In keeping with the menswear trend this winter, celebs have recently been seen sporting oversized button-down shirts. (Above: Karolina Kurkova; Mary-Kate Olsen; Rhianna; Sienna Miller). I love this trend because it is undeniably classic and for some reason I find it to be rather sexy. As seen above, the oversized button-down can be worn in many different ways tucked into a pencil skirt (my favorite), over leggings, tucked into denim shorts (another of my faves), and with skinny jeans. The key is not let the shirt's large size overpower your frame. Keep whatever you wear on the bottom fitted. If you are interested in trying out this trend, below are some options for you to choose from: BCBG back-hem striped blouse for $138 available on www.bcbg.com; Elizabeth & James "Laurent" shirt on sale for $206.50 down from $295 available on www.shopbop.com; Helmut Lang shirting "Bayamo" blouse on sale for $185.50 down from $265 available on www.shopbop.com; Patterson J.
