Over the years, we have seen countless ways to style and accessorise a simple shirt and we know for a fact that there’s more than one way to wear a button-down. We have the classic, which is the front knot, the very stylish half tuck and recently, for a few seasons now, we have seen the button up! Since then we’ve been on the lookout for some new shirt styling inspirations.

Well, just when we thought that there wasn’t another way to go when it came to styling a basic button down shirt, street fashionistas are serving us some serious inspiration. Its called the ‘Wrap and Tuck’ and I’m sure you guys are going to love it. Ok, I admit, this isn’t exactly a new style, AUDREY HEPBURN did it back in the day, but the trend is making a big come back.

Because you haven’t buttoned up all the buttons on the shirt, the neck of the shirt tends to get a bit deep. You can use safety pins or button one of the top buttons to secure it in place, like i did, so that you prevent any wardrobe malfunctions.

I love statement neck pieces, and they go so well with this styling tip because the neck of the shirt does get a bit deep, allowing you to load up on cool accessories. This styling trick works well on oversized shirts as there is more fabric to play around with.

This trick is simple enough that anyone can do it, but it’s still stylish and just a cool, new way to wear a shirt. That’s the best kind of trend, if you ask me. Even one of your “work” tops can become after-hours appropriate with this trick. It’s a great way to switch up your style for a night out with friends. Thus

proving that even the most basic of basics can become fashion forward with some great styling.
