The button-up shirt might seem like a humble basic, but designers are ensuring that it’s anything but. Labels like Monse and Monique Lhuillier offer up twists on the classic, adding a touch of sequins here, some lace there. But for the ultimate remix, we’ve found a trio of shirts that take the poplin button-up shirt and turn it on its ear. These one-shoulder tops wear like your usual go-to, but they’re so much more. Think of them as the uptown sister to your workwear staple. Wear them to a cocktail party or to happy hour for something that’s got that special feel without looking like you’ve tried too hard. It’s the perfect balance of dressed-up and dressed-down — in short, it’s perfect for just about every occasion.
