The Shirt That’s Taking Over in 2021

Happy Thursday, ladies! I am still trying to get used to saying and writing 2021. It’s hard to believe we are already three weeks into the new year.

I’m super excited to see the classic, white button-down shirt making a strong comeback this year; it’s taking over in 2021

The white shirt is a wardrobe staple; it’s simple and chic. Hollywood icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly wore them loose with capri pants or tucked into skirts.

To say this shirt has been around a while would be an understatement.

I recently purchased a white button-down from EVEREVE. It has side slits, hangs longer in the back, and has a soft feel. (More white button-downs below at different price points.)

First, I styled a casual look with jeans and sneakers. I left the shirt out, but you could tuck it in or tie it at the waist for some different looks.

Next, I layered a crew neck sweater over the white shirt.

Lastly, I dressed the shirt up with a colorful coat and a pair of heels. This is probably my favorite way to style it.

I love a coat, and this one from Kohl’s is on sale for $59.99.

These square toe heels are a beautiful color. They’re regularly $129, but they’re 60% off at Nordstrom.

Somebody ran outside (boots on the wrong feet) to get in on the action.

She kissed my lips so she could have some lip color on her lips. She is all girl!

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty For the Heart~~ There is something magical about facing your fears. When you show up and do the thing, have the hard conversation, or face the issue, and you realize the dread was far worse than the fear.

You realize that the enemy doesn’t try to stop you because you’re incapable or unworthy, rather, he is terrified of how fast you’ll run once you remove the weights from your ankles.

Because You + Jesus, wild and free? UNSTOPPABLE!

So, face your fears. Decide to believe that His favor over you is enough to take a step forward.

Your confidence is in JESUS. -Cleerly Stated

Have a blessed day!

  1. Ok I know the post was about the white shirt, but that pink coat stole the show!! If I had a kohl’s or they shipped to Canada I would be ordering that!!! Love seeing Miss Claire with you I feel like she’ll be getting into the action every chance she gets .., so 🥰

  2. First I think we can all relate to the BFTH today, so thank you for sharing.
    I love a white shirt but can’t seem to find one in petite that works for me. I ordered one from Loft a few months ago but it was too short in the front so I can to return it. Love those sneakers!

  3. I love that coat and just ordered it! I forget that I have several white button up tops. I tend to think of them as dressy, but of course I could wear them every day. I will pull them out! And the photos with your sweet g’girl are adorable. Thanks so much, Cyndee!

    1. I’ve been reading articles re trends 2021. One I see repeatedly is the white button down shirt but it is styled oversized, think wearing your hubby’s shirt. I think I’ll stick to the more traditional style as you have here.
      Are you going to do an upcoming trend post as interpreted by someone mature?

  4. Ok I know the post was all about the white shirt but that pink coat sure stole the show! If we had kohl’s in Canada or they shipped here I’d be ordering that coat! Love seeing Miss Claire she’s so sweet:) I do need a white classic shirt 😉

  5. I love a white shirt. I have several of them. I hate how my makeup always gets on my collar. How do you prevent this if you do? I know I can’t be only one with this issue. Thank you for your response.

    1. The coat is gorgeous on you! In the comments on here everyone calls it pink but online says red. Is it coral? What color would you describe it as?

  6. Oh my goodness. You must have read my mind. Just yesterday I was looking for a white button down online as I want one but thinking long enough to be able to wear with black leggings with jean jacket on top. I almost emailed you to see if you could do a post 🙂 lol. I love the one you styled awhile back with the plaid vest and leopard sneakers but you said it wrinkled. Anyway, perfect timing and looking forward to checking out these you posted. Thanks. I love a white top of any kind.

  7. Thanks for sharing your video on how you are doing your eyeliner. I don’t get on Instagram often. I did my eye make up today as you do and love it!

  8. I love a white button down shirt. I’m glad I always keep several in my closet but might have to purchase a couple of news ones!

  9. You do not look like the grandmother. Rather, you look like her mother! What a sweet photo. How cute that she was in such a hurry, she put the wrong shoes on her feet!

  10. That’s interesting to hear. I haven’t seen any white shirts through the fashion bloggers I follow on social media. I thought the 2021 shirt is the shacket. It’s everywhere I look! I just ordered one from Amazon.
