Until recently, I didn't have any white button-down shirts. I think I was always too deterred by the high possibility of frontal gappage to purchase any. But something in me clicked (er... buttoned?) I guess, and for better or worse, now I can't stop buying them.
I spotted this one at Topshop this weekend and, despite the fact that I already own about four different versions of it, I couldn't help myself. The broderie and lace detailing is so pretty (I'd suggest clicking the link below to see the full peekaboo effect on a model), plus it works equally well tucked in or tied up for some Gwyneth in The Talented Mr. Ripley-type vibes. I feel like it's honestly more of a summer shirt, but there's something about wearing a warm-weather top when it's freezing cold outside that kind of tricks your mind into thinking spring's on its way. Hey, I'll take it!
Cotton broderie shirt, $72, available at Topshop.
