Blame it on Balmain, but the fashionable eye is seeing buttons, everywhere. From tip to toe, button-laden garb is gracing every fashionista, and for good reason. Buttons simply add that stamp of ‘chic’; reminiscent of that Parisian pizzazz, they are quintessentially French and oh-so à la mode.
This season, the bigger (button) the better – with almost novelty-size shapes playing out. Either amp up your button behaviour, or pare it down – either way, bare the button.
Hot off the fashion press, this slick bustier is a muted take on bold buttons. In a creamy biscuit colour and atypical to the usual gold; six black buttons sit front and centre to make this the perfect buttoned bustier.
Witchery Asymmetric Button Henley Top
For a unique slant on the trend (literally), this top laughs in the face of its straight counterparts, and opts for a suave row of asymmetrical gold buttons. Take that straighty-one-eighties.
You can almost hear the “oui, oui’s” and smell the buttery croissants; this skirt is evocative of Parisian streets and French chic. A buttoned take on the classic pencil skirt, ten golden buttons sparkle this into a standout piece.
Misha Collection Carmela Playsuit
For the ultimate glam, look no further than this Misha Collection playsuit. Recently donned by the babein’ Jourdan Dunn, the stark white buttons are dramatic in their size, but not in their colour, blending in to the backdrop of the same colour.
Zimmermann Havoc Stud Flare Pant
Trust Zimmermann to make the perfect pant, and then embellish it with perfectly placed gold buttons. These fabulous flowing slacks are wide legged with a hint of flare, as bold gold rivets line scooped pockets, making for a tremendous trouser.
Now, these are buttons. In real-life these gigantic, resin, mottled seafoam and aqua buttons are nothing short of incredible. Despite the rather hefty price-tag, this is a statement skirt well worth your pennies.
This coat – now on sale thank you very much – is the perfect snug cover-up with a spike of glamour thanks to its gilded double-breasted buttons.
