Six Ways to Wear a Striped Button Up Top

A striped button up top is a great staple to have in your closet.  You can easily dress it up for work or down for a more casual affair.  Today’s six ways to wear a striped button up top includes three casual outfits and three work outfits. For the three casual, I’m showing a popular fall outfit, super casual look, and a look with OTK boots.  For work, I’m hitting all work dress levels including casual Friday, business casual, and a simple office look.

My striped top is a tunic length which is perfect for pairing with leggings.  To change up the look of my top, I opted to tie it at the waist in a few of the looks.  This option can help add definition to your waist.  The longer length of the top makes it super easy to tie into a cute knot.

Cardigan, jeans and booties is a classic fall look.  Since my cardigan is long, I opted to tie the top at my waist to showcase different lengths in my layers.

Since my boots are over the knee, I went with a tie at the waist.  The shorter look of the top helps make my legs look a little longer with the over the knee boots.  It’s a fun little petite trick of mine.

The best thing about tunics is how perfect they mix with black leggings.  The striped button up style gives a bit more of put together look to the leggings.  I added in a denim jacket for a layered fall outfit.

For a more business casual jeans outfit, I paired this striped tunic with a gray pair of skinny jeans and heels.  The height of my heel works well with the tunic length. The untucked top and gray jeans give a deconstructed casual office vibe.

With a quick tie at the waist, this top is a perfect pairing with a pencil skirt for the office.  I tucked the ends of the tie up in the shirt to create the look of a tucked in shirt.  This works great with a faux leather skirt when a tucked in shirt may show off a line or bunching in your skirt.

For casual Friday in the office, a pair of skinny jeans and loafers are perfect.  Since I’m petite and wearing flats, I opted to tie my shirt at the waist to help make the overall outfit look more put together and prevent me from looking shorter.
