For most of us, the majority of the week’s hours are spent at an office. For some reason or another, however, we don’t consistently put in the same effort for dressing up as we would for, say, a date or dinner out with the girls. Perhaps because it’s difficult to come up with a slam dunk look five days in a row, but whatever the reason, we can all agree that wearing something that makes you look good and feel confident in the workplace is a smart idea.
That brings us to the topic of today’s market roundup. The last handful of seasons we’ve seen a slew of reworked button-down shirts across the board. When we say reworked, we mean anything slightly re-tinkered to make it different from the norm. This ranges from a ruffled neckline to voluminous bell sleeves, and we think it’s oh-so-cool looking. We also happen to think that investing in a few reworked shirts is the quickest way to take your standard office uniform to the next level. See below to shop our favorites right now, and be sure to tell us what you think of this funky trend in the comments below.
