Menswear Inspired Look for the Office

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’!!
