Some days just call for a menswear-inspired piece. Whether it’s cold and blustery outside or you have a meeting where you have to impress, a sleek shirt will convey poise and power the moment you walk in the door. I don’t normally look for work clothes at Madewell, but their Dotted Tux Shirt made me take a second look.
The sleek black paneling on the bib gives this shirt enough polish to carry you through several outfits. Pair it with a high-waisted skirt, like above, or to really get into the menswear-inspired look, pair it with some high-waisted black pants to really make an entrance. I love Madewell’s styling with a pop of color–it really makes this shirt pop! On the weekends, toss the Dotted Tux Shirt on over your favorite pair of slightly distressed jeans and a pair of killer boots (I’m loving these) for an unexpected, preppy look.
