Option 1:  Column White with Untucked Blouse

Sometimes it’s okay to just leave your shirt untucked. Here, I have styled a white top with white pants (white “column”) to create a slimming look. I then layered a neutral long cardigan over top to create a soothing neutral outfit or coastal grandmother outfit.  Shop this outfit here.

(White Blouse + White Pants = Column Dressing to Look Thinner/Longer) + Neutral Cardigan = Coastal Grandmother Style

Option 3:  Untucked Button Up Shirt

One way to look modern – rather than matronly – is to leave your button up shirt untucked…but make sure the button up is TAILORED.  Here, I have paired an untucked sleeveless button up (it has darts in the front and back to draw it in) for a simple chic everyday outfit.
