One of my favorite classic looks consists of a simple sweater over a button-up shirt. I’ve been trying to pull this off for years, but I am often unsuccessful. I have a large chest, which isn’t really button-up friendly. I usually can’t button shirts up all the way, because there are awkward gaps where the shirt is busting open in between buttons. And then, when you pull a sweater over this, it just looks like a mess.

Designers and retailers have become more accommodating to this common issue over the years by making shirts more curve friendly or making a single shirt that combines the two in one, and both are good options. But I had a different idea – trying changing up the type of collared shirt underneath. 

This collared shirt is different in two ways. First, it is made of polyester, not cotton, which is a much more flexible fabric. Cotton can be stiff and awkward when layering. And, it is sleeveless, which means no bulking or lumpiness down the arm. This definitely a smoother and more comfortable option. 

I hope you found this post helpful, and let me know your thoughts below!
