Button-Up Shirt: Wardrobe Staple

A button-up shirt is a wardrobe must-have for all women. Sheer or bold, quirky print or classic white, tucked-in or out, teamed with your trousers or denims or shorts or a sexy skirt, whatever style or way you wear it, button-up shirts are an essential element of every wardrobe.

What style?
A silky or quirky printed is a must have this season - they will add en edge of sophistication or fun to your look and these versatile pieces can be worn from day to night, office to a cosy dinner and work in all seasons. Pick a silky one to glam up your look and a quirky print to make it more fun.

Let's check how some of our stylish celebs have worn their button-up shirt look.

Rose Byrne looks stylish wearing her georgette white crochet button-up shirt with a yellow skirt. Lace-up stilettoes and a splash of red nail polish was the perfect finishing touch.

You can make a nice white button-up shirt playful with bright something like Rose, or you can make it sexy and stylish with smart shorts as seen on a model at New Zealand Fashion Week 2011. You can wear it at work with a jacket and carry it on for a night party.

Rachel Bilson mismatched her prints to perfection at a TV party in Beverly Hills, where she wore a silky floral shirt with zingy orange trousers and leopard-print courts.

Elizabeth Olsen makes a statement when she wears her slightly sheer white button-up shirt, tucked-out, with bright orange miniskirt and a statement collar necklace.

Current fashion darling, Kate Middleton yet again makes a mark in her fashion credentials wearing a military style button-up cream shirt with navy trim and gold buttons, with matching navy pencil skirt.

Ever stylish and the biggest fashion risk-taker was spotted in a chic look when she paired her bracelet sleeved cream silky shirt with navy trousers. She accessorised it with an oak-coloured satchel and black pumps.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Pick a smart white silky button-up blouse for an interesting look and pair it with smart shorts in a basic neutral (think white, nude) like Kourtney Kardashian. She works her look pretty well, and the black slingbag makes for the perfect accessory.

Nicky Hilton and the ever stylish Alexa Chung wear their printed shirts with shorts in two different ways. Voted as one of the ten Vogue's best dressed woman, Alexa wore her quirky red polka dot red shirt tucked-in with shorts and cutesy red sunglasses, while Nicky wears her oversized floral shirt tucked-out and knotted with shorts. Love both the ladies in their button-up shirt look.

Alexa Chung

Love the double dip of silky printed blouse worn by a model on the runway of Aussie designer Little Joe at The Famous Edit Runway Show as part of Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival Sydney 2011. White was the prime colour of the look and the tan belt and matching shoes completey inched up the style quotient of her ensemble.
