The classic womens’ button down shirt, tunic and shirtdress are timeless wardrobe staples. It’s no wonder, as these styles are easy to dress up or down, can be worn any season and appeal to women of many ages.
To be reassured by their versatility and timelessness, one needs only to look into the wardrobes of minimalists and capsule wardrobe enthusiasts, to see these pieces in their vital closet arsenal. Yet I believe that the true value comes when combining this lasting style with a superior fabric, and made by environmentally conscious brands.
Now your have longevity personified!
