Boot cut pants are back and are hot as ever especially the high waist ones. They come in different fabrics obviously and can be paired smartly with a puff arm blouse for an office chic look like Nimi Nwofor in the look above.
- Off the shoulder (OTS) button down shirts
Fashionistas have found another use for button down shirt, rocking them as Off The Shoulder blouses. If you want to achieve this look, you’ll want to start by using a button down that is a bit oversize on you. The bigger the shirt, the more room you have with the fabric. Unbutton a few of the top buttons so you can lay the collar off your shoulders. Tuck in the bottom into your skirt like Lisa Folawiyo in the above Photo and you are good to go once you get it sitting the way you feel comfortable.
