It seems to me that I am always on the hunt for a perfectly styled classic white button down blouse. Every wardrobe should have one. Being petite, it’s not easy to find just the right fit. Often they can be too long or too boxy for a petite frame. When shopping for a classic white button down, I look for a few specific things first.
Color. The white should be just right, not too blue which can appear cool and gray, but not too yellow either as that can look creamy and dull.
Collar. The collar needs to sit nicely folded and have a good shape if you are in the mood to flip it up. A collar that is too large will be too much when standing tall while a collar to0 small won’t add the pop.
Cuff. The cuffs need to be the right size in length and width. You want a cuff that will fold up nicely without being too snug, but loose enough to give you room to move. Jenna Lyons has perfected the cuffed sleeve.
