How to Wear a Striped Shirt from Work to Weekend

I basically live in button down shirts. Every season, I add new ones to my wardrobe. They’re just so versatile! For spring, I added a striped button down shirt. Vertical stripes help elongate the body, which makes you look taller. Here is how to wear a striped shirt from work to weekend.

For the office, I like pairing striped button down shirts with trousers to make a work friendly outfit. I often reach for these white pants when I have meetings in spring and summer. Since the yellow is a bold color, I kept the rest of my accessories neutral with classic nude pumps and a matching bag.

On weekends, I dress down my button down shirts with denim shorts. You can wears sneakers, or a comfy slide like my nude block heel sandals.

If yellow isn’t your thing, both outfits would work with any color striped button down shirt. Here are a few online that I’m liking right now, including mine in white and blue…

A striped button down shirt is also an easy piece to take from work to dinner. After a day of meetings in my striped button down and white pants, I met my friends for dinner at The Draycott. It was such a pleasant surprise that my top perfectly matched their yellow chairs. I love a good matchy-matchy photo moment!

We took the more casual outfit example around the corner at Palisades Village. I’ve talked about this Los Angeles spot before. It’s one of my favorite places to visit when I’m on the Westside. They have so many cute shops, restaurants and even a movie theater! I definitely recommend visiting if you’re in the area!

On a side note, I got a comment on Instagram that I’m constantly showing off these distressed denim shorts. I know I wear them a lot but they’re just my favorite shorts. I try to show how to wear pieces multiple ways instead of just showcasing new looks all the time. I’m curious what type of content you like the best? Let me know in the comments below!
