One of the things that I envy the most about menswear is its simplicity. A crisp white shirt, slacks, and belt often are enough to make a man look ‘put together’. I don’t own too many crisp white shirts, often because they don’t seem to be made well for curvy, petite women like me. That is, until I spotted this white shirt from Target:
I love the length because it can be worn with leggings or skinny jeans (as shown), or tucked into slacks like I have done below. I also love the fact that the buttons are covered. I just feel like it makes the shirt look polished. Exposed buttons aren’t necessarily bad, but I definitely prefer the look of hidden buttons better.

If you love the shirt, be sure to use the Cartwheel app in store to get an additional 25% off. If you use your Target Red Card, you can save up to 30% on the purchase of the shirt! Promo ends today, however, so be sure to scoop it up while you can! The slacks are also on super sale at the moment and I believe sizes are limited online, but you may still be able to find them in the stores, so keep an eye out for them! One caveat about these slacks: They are actually meant to be cropped slacks! So, if you’re petite like me, they work wonderfully because you don’t have to have them altered. 😉 Finally, both the belt and bag are sold out (actually, C Wonder went bankrupt, so the belt will likely never be available again), but I linked some alternatives above.
That’s all for now! Happy shopping and hope you all have a wonderful week!
Until next time! Stay ‘Chic’!!
