What’s the difference between “Button-up” and “Button-down”?|Fashion 101² DAY 3

A Button-up shirt is with a separated front that encloses entirely with buttons.

A Button-down shirt is with the front buttons, as well as the buttons on the end of the collars. It was originated around the 20th century with English polo players, who started this style to keep the collars from blowing up into their faces while playing. Then Brooks Brothers introduced this style to Americans. “Button-down” quickly became a classic.

Look 1 Lace Up 

For the first look, I chose the simple creamy flower lace top to compliment the flowers on the skirt. Tucking in the top makes it a more formal look and helps to define the waist line. With this outfit, I chose a pair of black lace heel and bohemian inspired earrings. A perfect outfit for a date night, isn’t it ?Read More »

Your clothes change how people view you.

Right, never judge a book by its cover. But very often, out of all the books in the bookstore, we pick up the book with the most interesting name and cover.
