Button-up shirts are having a serious moment. The polished style has been a workwear wardrobe essential for decades, but over the past few months, celebrities have been showcasing just how versatile button-up shirts really are.
Katie Holmes has been spotted running errands in NYC in breezy linen button-ups, Jennifer Lopez wore an emerald green version while house hunting with Ben Affleck in California, and Meghan Markle sported a crisp white button-down while cheering on Prince Harry in a recent polo match. Clearly, the timeless take on office-attire-turned-streetwear knows no bounds.
As proved by Duff’s button-up shirt, silk immediately elevates any clothing item from basic to luxury. Plus, instead of following Drew Barrymore spirit Meghan Markle’s lead by opting for bold blue and white stripes – the ultimate preppy pick – the Younger star went with a more understated pattern: brown pinstripes.

But if you prefer more breathable fabrics like cotton or linen, there are plenty of button-up shirts similar to Duff’s that are more sweat-resistant and affordable, like this $ 50 pink pick from Nordstrom.
You can pair pinstripe button-up shirts with wide-legged trousers and heels for the office and cargo pants or denim shorts and sneakers for daytime summer activities. It’s rare to find a piece of clothing that’s both office-appropriate and trendy, so take advantage of this closet chameleon and ride the button-up shirt wave while it’s still going strong.
