A button up top has been on my “in search of” list as I curate my personal style so when encircled was designing their version of a classic button up, only comfy, I had to give it a try!
Material - The Comfy Button Up
The Comfy Button Up is made with Lenzing Modal. This is a plant based fabric made from the pulp of beech trees. It’s soft and drapey, but more structured than other Modal pieces from encircled, which is a good fit for this style of top.
Does it wrinkle? It can! The first time I wore it out of the shipping package and smashed in my small closet space it was a bit wrinkly. I took a fabric steamer to it and here are the before and after pics. The first picture to the last picture where both sides have been lightly steamed are only 3 minutes apart. Literally. And after years of not wanting to iron things, I have to admit I kind of like the process of taking those few minutes to do something so simple as steaming a garment that I care about and want to keep in good condition for years to come.
Fit - The Comfy Button Up
The Comfy Button Up is designed to be fitted across the shoulders and have a loose, drapey fit over the body and through the sleeves.
I always get XS in encircled tops as I find the sizing generous. I have a petite upper frame and I really don’t like to feel like I’m swimming in fabric, so I generally prefer a fit and flare type of style.
First impressions on theComfy Button Up fit - good fit overall, but could be a little more fitted for my preference. Also, I may have short arms, but I feel the sleeves are a bit long and I want to appreciate the sleeve details more!
With encircled pieces I find the more I wear them the more I love them so I look for that to be the case with this top as well. Learning to style different silhouettes is fun and can be really rewarding as you try new things!
Styling - The Comfy Button Up
Here are some outfits featuringthe Comfy Button Up.
This is a beautiful piece, thoughtfully made, that I will wear and love for years to come, I am sure of it. It’s available in a nice variety of neutrals and colors for the first run so you can find something you will love! I’m still on the hunt for a true, classic button up though. Most likely white or slightly off white. If you have a good rec for a petite, let me know! I just really want the look of that classic collar. I love the look of layering it for different outfits, which just can't be achieved with this piece.
