fave work outfit

I love white button downs.

top and skirt from H&M


Great tips from for button-downs:

1. Beneath the white shirt: Wear a bra that matches your skin tone, and a white camisole, no matter how convinced you are that no one can see through it.

2. It should fit you at the bust. If the shirt is gaping, size up.

3. If you wear it untucked, it should hit mid-hip and should never be longer than your suit jacket.

4. Collars should stay on the inside of the suit jacket, not splayed on the outside.

5. Try not to put your white shirts in the dryer to avoid yellowing.


  1. Good tips! Why can't you wear a nude camisole instead? Then the shirt will appear evenly white. Nice skirt... what tips do you have for work skirts?

  2. I find that the white camisole underneath makes the shirt look really white. I guess you can experiment with a nude camisole.

    I will look around for tips on work skirts and see which ones are worth posting.

  3. Lookie what I found. The Chicago bar held a What Not to Wear Fashion show! Tips for ya!
