THE COLLAR ~ Thread Ethic | Modest Fashion

Friday, January 14, 2011


The buttoned up collar is the way chic girls on the street are wearing their button down shirts. Inspiration for this look has come from the runways of designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim to Nicole Miller. Even Urban Outfitters is featuring some chic buttoned up blouses in their Early Spring catalog. The key to making this look work is to keep the collar very small, even tiny. You can wear a blouse like this alone, or under sweaters or dresses and it will give everything an of-the-moment feel.


  1. Thank you girls for being strong about modesty! Most styles are already modest, just as you state, and we just have to put ourselves in it. These styles are definitely so chic and feminine, trendy and casually sophisticated. Thanks for sharing it with everyone.

  2. I really love the small collared button up shirt look! I am inspired to add one to my wardrobe, post pregnancy of course! Thank you, ladies!

  3. I love the buttoned collar myself also, just makes the shirt look complete :).
