A few weeks back, I asked what your biggest challenge was when it came to style or fashion, and SO many of you responded (thank you!!). in 2020, I want to help you with those challenges! Today we are going to talk about how to wear a women’s button up top.
I am so excited to share this new HOW TO STYLE series with you guys. I always ask myself is “How can I help other Uptown readers? It may be fashion, beauty, or motherhood. But I want to make sure I’m not sharing just a cute outfit, but I want to be here to service and help with ideas, inspiration, or little nuggets.
So let’s talk about button up tops, and how to wear a women’s button up top. The first thing to talk about is the different kind of button up tops.
You will find about three different types of fit. You will have your regular fit, slim fit, and boyfriend fit (boyfriend fit usually means just oversized). There are also tons of different textiles, you can have chambray, cotton, flannel, and the list goes on.
One more thing I want to note is to pay close attention to how your button up tops fit. If the buttons are gapping, you need to go up a size. Also, note there is a difference between button up and button down tops. Buttondown tops mean the collars have buttons.

CAN YOU WEAR A BUTTON UP WITH SHORTS?
This is my kind of style! Easy breezy! Perfect for running around with the kids, but again, still chic and fashion-forward. This outfit is your classic denim on denim look, but with denim shorts. For this look, any type of denim wash works, you can play around with different colored denim too!

HOW TO WEAR DENIM ON DENIM:
Still keeping the denim on denim look, all I did for this second look was add high waist leg trousers to elongate the legs, and to break up the denim on denim look, I added a skinny leopard belt. Perfect date night look if you ask me!

HOW TO WEAR DIFFERENT COLORED DENIM:
Have you noticed a trend here?! Denim on denim, but different colors this time. If you ever get stuck in the, I have nothing to wear situation, denim on denim ALWAYS works. Add a blazer and heels, and you have a casual work look. You can dress it down with sneakers, and you have a casual weekend look.

BUTTON UP TOP STYLED WITH A BLAZER:
I love how instantly a blazer adds sophistication like nobodies business. Again, you can add heels here for an office look. You can wear your button-up top fully tucked in with a belt, or untuck it for more of a casual look.
outfit details: sweater / top / skirt / boots
HOW TO LAYER YOUR BUTTON UP TOP:
Have you ever seen a cropped sweater and thought, “oh, that’s so cute, but I could never wear a cropped sweater.” Well, don’t rule it out just yet! You can use a button-up top as I did here to layer it underneath. #yourewelcome
outfit details: jacket / top / leggings / shoe
OVERSIZED BUTTON UP TOP WITH LEGGINGS:
This look is specifically for all my legging lovers. I don’t ever recommend wearing leggings as pants, I like to always wear leggings with something oversized that covers my butt. My advice to pull off a button-up top with leggings is to make sure it’s an oversized fit. I added the denim jacket to complete the look.
