Scroll through my Pinterest feed, and you’ll see tons of fashionable girls in white button-down shirts. Every now and then, I come across the all-in-one top jeans or trousers – or can be paired with a satin skirt for a more sophisticated vibe. As obsessed with these ‘fits’, I’ve never actually bought a white button-up – until now.
A big part of my job is scouring Old Navy for products that are destined to be bestsellerso I decided to give the mark Long-sleeve shirt for oversized boyfriends ($35) a try. The price is right and it has lots of great reviews – including one praising the shirt as “too comfortable”. I value comfort as much as aesthetics, so you can bet that’s what convinced me to add the product to my cart.
When it arrived, I (obviously) had to wear it right away. I tried the French clasp with a pair of my favorite blues flared jeans; As a finishing touch to my simple yet stylish fit, I added a gold necklace and earrings. Naturally, I took a few pictures while my corgi dog stared at me.
Verdict: while I’m a bit sad I didn’t invest in a white button earlier, I’m glad I’ve officially changed that. It helps that this is the most comfortable button I’ve ever tried – all the shirts I’ve tested in the past have been either too tight or too tight in places where it shouldn’t be.
If you’re also obsessed with this shirt, you’ll be happy to know that it’s also available in yellow and blue (known as Sun Worship and Flax) – both great for spring. .
A final note: act fast if you want to add this button to your wardrobe. It’s highly rated on the brand’s website – it has a near-perfect five-star rating – and is known to sell out alarmingly fast. Since I don’t have a crystal ball to predict when and when the brand will be replenished, my advice is to make the moves while you can.
