trend watch: BUTTON DOWN AND JEANS

A simple button down and a great pair of jeans is a must have!  You can vary the look with different cuts and washes of denim.  Plus you can change your look from day to night or casual to a little dressed up with different shoes and accessories!  Check out these celeb looks and find out how you can steal them...

Kate Bosworth buttoned up her shirt all the way and tucked it into a pair of trouser jeans with outside front pockets.  She layered a necklace under her collar and finished the look off with wedges and a great bag!

- Saya Necklace by Samanca - $180 / $52
- Tyla Wedge by Dolce Vita - $79


Zoe Saldana tucked her button down into a pair of low rise flare jeans.  She threw on a cross body bag and was ready for an active day out and about!

There is nothing more classic than a button-down and jeans. They make a great, casual combination.

One of my favorite looks ever! It's classic, but not in a boring way. It's put together without looking like it's trying too hard. This will be my fall uniform!

JustPatience said...

Nothing ever looks bad on Zoe. Love her. The button downs are classics. Love it when paired with button down shirts.

XoXo,

Not Just A Pretty Dress said...

I definitely like this trend, especially how Kate Bosworth channeled it. However, while I'm in favour of tucking the shirt into jeans/trousers, I don't like to button up the shirt all the way. Looks too much...

Alessandra Mazzini said...

I rather Katie's and Zoe's looks! I'm gonna try that for sure!
