I’ve had this light blue poplin shirt since the beginning of spring, but I’ve had a hard time figuring out how to style it.
Sounds kind of laughable, right? I mean, it’s a basic and lovely button down — you wouldn’t think it would be that hard to style.
But for some reason, none of the outfits I put together nailed the look I was going for.
You know writer’s block? Well, this felt like stylist’s block.
Until this look!
I think the key is contrast — contrast between the light blue shirt and the slightly darker denim wash + contrast between the light blue shirt with that bright white tank. Also — tan accessories! I haven’t worn these tan flip flops in a looooong time, opting for black ones instead. But I decided it was time to pull them out again. And it turns out, I love that shade of tan with that lighter blue.
Now, of course, this isn’t the only way to style this button down — but it was exactly what I needed to get past this bout of stylist’s block.
Have you ever experienced this type of block with a certain piece in your wardrobe? What helped you get past it? Or are you still in it? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
