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.
Six Ways to Wear a Striped Button Up Top
WITH LONG CARDIGAN & DISTRESSED JEANS
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.
WITH JEANS & OVER THE KNEE BOOTS
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.
WITH BLACK LEGGINGS & DENIM JACKET
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.
GRAY JEANS & HEELS
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 FAUX LEATHER PENCIL SKIRT
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.
WITH LIGHT BLUE JEANS & LOAFERS
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.
