At this point, the button-up silk shirt is beyond classic. It's what we buy in basic colors, then in patterns, then in our favorite standout shade. It's that piece you stop yourself from buying more of when you realize you already have five. The problem is, though we know its versatility is vast, we tend to style it the same way over and over again: Either as a tunic over leggings or tucked into a pair of suit pants for work.
Get out of the silk shirt rut and start seeing these pieces differently with the looks we've put together below. Jeans and high tops are the perfect way to add some casual-edge to the preppiest silk bow blouse. Add leather and you've got serious model-off-duty style. Consider pairing your neutral top with an eye-popping print mini skirt. Pair it with flats to keep it low key or heels for a night out. If you've got one in a gorgeous jewel tone, add texture and unexpected pieces in black to make it the standout it was meant to be. Get creative and happy silk shirt styling!
