Shirting is having a moment this spring. But we're not talking about just any shirting: We're talking about next-level shirts that will amp up any look in the blink of an eye—for the office, date night, weekend, and beyond! While we love a clean white button-down for layering, can't get enough of a menswear stripe, and know the reliability of a button-down shape well, it's time to step out of the box and try something new.
A cotton button-down is always a classic. But this spring's mighty band of poplins are making a statement: They want to be noticed. Some twist and tie; others boast off-the shoulder silhouettes; still more mix-and-match materials for a style that's anything but ordinary. These new shirting shapes will give your look the extra oomph it needs as you transition your winter wardrobe to spring. For work, top a black skirt with a white shirt that ties, style an off-the-shoulder option with denim on the weekends, and go for a dramatic bell sleeve for a night out on the town. With this spring's take on the timeless shirting classic, you can't go wrong.
