Raise your hand if the thought of shopping for button ups makes you wanna lie down and take a nap… Whether it’s that annoying AF chest gap that looks like you’re about to pop, a ridiculous waist grazing length that flashes skin every time you reach for something on the top shelf, or you feel like there’s a 75% chance you’re going to hulk out of the shoulders, we know better than anyone how hard it can be to find the shirt of your dreams. Well, consider us the OK Cupid of tailored tops cuz we’re breakin’ it down button up style thanks to 3 of our fave humans.

WILDFANG

This was definitely my favorite of the three shirts. The lightweight material made it not feel tight or uncomfortable, there was no sign of dreaded chest gap and plenty of room in the hips. However, since I’m blessed in the height department, I would probably size up to an XL just for the added length.

KARDO

My go-to trick when picking out a button up is the hug test: if I can feel tightness or pulling in the arms and shoulders, I know I’m probably not going to love it for everyday wear. The Kardo was a bit more constricting than I’d prefer, but the quality and sturdiness of fabric are perfect for fall.

PEAU DE LOUP

I’m obsessed with the length of this style. For us taller girls, button ups tend to be way too short and hit at the widest part of our hips giving a boxy look up top (not my fave), but the PDL was on the money in terms of length. There was a bit of chest gap happening, but I love the length so much I’d wear it unbuttoned with a tee underneath.

I officially want all my button ups to be made out of 100% bamboo—so light and airy! I can tell that this shirt was tailored for a woman’s body; It was perfectly roomy in all the right places without looking slouchy or sloppy. I especially love the put-together, professional vibes of the fit combined with the cheekiness of the pattern.

KARDO

This button up fits true to size and was perfect for my body type: a great fit in the shoulders and bust, and didn’t bunch up around my hips—WOOHOO! There is nothing worse than a button up that fits everywhere except around your hips, so I am definitely adding this shirt into heavy rotation.

PEAU DE LOUP

I’m really digging this super-soft flannel for fall. It was a little snug around the hips and didn’t lay completely flat at the bust so I’d probably size up to a medium if I wanted to wear it closed. Hell, I might even go up a few sizes to rock it around my waist or for an oversized-flannel look.

WILDFANG

I’m into the pattern and short sleeves of this shirt and would totally style it with some jeans and rad sneakers. I think my body type is usually better suited for a straighter, more traditional cut but I could see myself wearing this unbuttoned for a more laid-back look.

KARDO

This is much slimmer in the waist than I prefer so I can’t see myself wearing it on its own. Fortunately, it’s long enough to be tucked in, so I’d definitely use this as my go-to button up for under a blazer. Plus, the look and the feel of the fabric give it a much dressier vibe.

PEAU DE LOUP

This fit is LEGIT. The length and fitted tailoring in the shoulders is by far the most comfortable for me. It is cut long and slim but not tight, which is basically winning the button up lottery if you ask me. BONUS: the hidden interior pocket is a super-fun added detail that sets this shirt apart.
