Top Form

Michael Kors

Spring's bold menswear inspired shirts pack a graphic jolt with dots, lines, blocks, grids and stripes, giving new meaning to the term shape-shifting.  Once a power suit cliche, this classic reveals its playful side.  Totally chic with a pencil skirt, effortlessly cool with skinny jeans- a button-up top is a closet staple to cherish. 

Just Keep These Few Things in Mind:

1. The Outfit

For a tailored, office appropriate look, pair with a pencil skirt and fitted blazer. Crisp fabrics, like cotton or spandex are ideal for the office because they hold their shape.  On weekends, let the top go untucked with black leather skinnies or jeans and a statement necklace.

2. The Fit

Think slim, but not tight.  You shouldn't be able to grab more than two inches of fabric when you pull the shirt away from your body.

3. The Design

Traditional patterns, like stripes, work for 9-5. But, if you want to loosen things up a bit try small florals or colorblocking.
