Fashion Uniform

Fashion Uniform:
Button-Down Shirt + Midi Skirt + Sandals

It’s chic. It’s classic. And just when you think it’s too buttoned-up, it tucks effortlessly into a modern midi for swishing and swinging and twirling to your heart’s content. Then: Just add sandals. Memorize this formula and you’ll unlock a universe of possibilities for a spring uniform. But you don’t need us to tell you why a crisp white shirt is king or why it works particularly well with the skirt-and-sandals combo. We’ll just show you instead.

  1. LIFE OF THE PARTY

    A clean slate up top keeps the spotlight on the true scene-stealer down below: a pleated skirt that kicks up the festive vibes. Work in a chain-strap bag in the same spicy color family and the effect is amplified.

  1. PALATE CLEANSER

    This is the indisputably elevated combination that softly whispers, “poise” and “pulled-together” for when duty (or off-duty) calls. Ditto the saddlebag. Double ditto that sculptural ring.

  1. DETAIL-ORIENTED

    Yes, they’re simple at first glance, but these separates are executed with the kind of considered details (those colossal cuffs! that sash-like belt!) that catapult the whole thing from chic to chicer. Minimal leather accessories make the perfect add-ons; Staud and ATP Atelier always get it right.
