The updated dress shirt

Poplin shirts

1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | 8. | 9.

Poplin dress shirts -- mainly of the button-down variety -- have long been part of the 9-5 attire game. The classic white one has been included in every must-have roundup I think I've ever seen (and that's whether you have a desk job or not) and there's no denying they've earned their wardrobe staple status. But recently we've seen them get a little bit of a makeover and it's something you're going to be noticing more and more.

Forget the classic style you're used to. The updated version is asymmetrical, oversized, shoulder-baring and accented with bows, ties and ruffles. If you're part of the daily grind where pencil skirts and starched collars reign, some of these styles are a great way to breathe life into your office look without turning too many heads. But don't get me wrong, these dress shirts aren't just work wear. They're also great to pair with skinny jeans for a polished night-out look.

I wore an off the shoulder version in yesterday's post, and I can't wait to add more to my collection. This one and this one are my favorites from the ones above!

Top | Jeans | Pumps (also similar here) | Bag (love the gray version, too!) | Sunglasses

I feel like it's been for.ev.er since I've been able to comfortably wear jeans because of how hot it's been, so when I woke up to temperatures in the low 70s I knew it was time to test drive a pre-fall look. Anything off the shoulder is going to be a great transitional piece, and I especially love this blue and white pinstripe top. It was lightweight enough for the lingering summer heat that eventually arrived later in the day and still paired perfectly with black distressed skinnies, another one of my wardrobe favorites. The best part, though, is that it's only $15!

This top is also part of another trend I'm loving right now that I'll be highlighting in tomorrow's post: the updated oxford. New life has been given to these classic pieces over the past few months and I guarantee it's something you're going to want to have in your closet!

Link Love

-I've been eyeing this dress all summer and it just went on major sale. I can definitely see myself layering my favorite faux leather jacket over it for date night once the weather gets a little cooler.

-I spotted this pendant necklace on someone I passed on the street in D.C. and just knew it had to be a J. Crew piece. I was pretty proud of myself for tracking it down and was even happier when I saw the price!

-Blush is definitely considered a neutral in my book and I absolutely love this gorgeous blouse. It would be a great piece to have for the summer to fall transition.

-I can't get enough of the lace-up trend and this dress with the oversized detailing is so cute!

-The faux leather/suede combo on this crossbody is so good in person! It comes in both black or brown and either would be perfect as an every day fall bag.

-One of my favorite dresses of the summer has been restocked! It comes in both white and mint and has POCKETS. So comfy, too!

-I'm currently stalking these studded heels with the hope that they'll go on sale. I'm obsessed with the studs!

-The classic white Adidas sneaker you've been seeing everywhere just got a serious upgrade. How can I resist the gold and white combo?

-I've been using this marble iPhone case for months and finally found it online! And at $8 it's definitely a cheap thrill.

-Velvet is on track to be one of the hottest fall trends and this bomber jacket (another must-have!) is a super fun way to add it to your wardrobe. Plus it's on sale and in stock in all sizes!
