This button down was my fathers, I know it sounds weird, but sometimes the best place to find outfits is in your fathers closet. This button down is an old Versace from way before I was even born. Danielle snagged it before I could because she has a better eye than I do. Anyway, this button down was a lot bigger than most, and if you belt it, it turns out to be a fantastic dress.
Who knew your dad could be fashionable? My father is in the fashion industry so mine is a different story, but even if your father is a lawyer, doctor, realtor, etc. you can always find something fashionable in his closet. Button downs are always the best pull, but make sure it’s not a stiff intense button down they’d wear to work, but more so one that is comfortable and big. After you pair it with a belt, you must always roll up the sleeves! Never forget that.
I paired it with thigh highs to pull it together, and I am wearing a black mens h&m belt. I have noted before in past posts, mens belts are so much better. They fit better, and usually have more holes in them, which helps if you want to use the belt high waisted or low.
Try it out this weekend!
