Break out of your basic button-ups by selecting shirts with fresh details. Two things to look for?

1.) Texture – You might not find extreme variation in texture for button-ups – think of woven textiles, chambray, or leather accents for something functional but still interesting.

2.) Trends – Unique prints and patterns tend to reflect new trends. This shirt is a great take on color-blocking.

Gravitating towards a white v-neck and jeans will always be instinctive but that doesn’t mean the combo can’t be updated. Vary your look by adding a few other elements.

  • Tie a button-up – Tying a long sleeve shirt around your waist shouldn’t remind you of your mother during the 80s anymore. Tie it where a belt would lie for an easy way to incorporate more color or prints and carrying an extra layer in tow.
  • Colorful Sneakers – Casual sneakers might seem like an obvious addition to a jeans and a white tee, but a sneaker in a cool color palette makes your kicks a well-deserving object of attention.
  • Your Favorite Watch – Complete your look with a can’t-miss watch – I love the classic look of this silver chain watch.

Our annual trip to the pumpkin patch is one of the activities our family looks forward to most. When the weather is so beautiful it is hard not to want to be outside all the time. I always love to take advantage of these few weeks of perfect fall weather right before the cold front moves in. One piece I always reach for is a basic, comfortable hoodie. It’s all you need on a fall day.
