I’m Syma, Senior Manager of PR here at Aerie, and I am so excited to share my spring getaway essential with you: the white button-up shirt! At Aerie, we call it The Dad Shirt for its oversized menswear fit. This wardrobe staple will never go out of style and has the most classic silhouette. 

If you’re looking to pack light on your next vacay, it will be the perfect item to take with you because it can be worn an endless amount of ways! Here are three ways that I wore mine on my latest getaway:

Casual and Cool

For an easy vacation look, pair the white button-up over a classic gray tank. Then match it back to our Dad Short, another menswear play on our updated sweat short. Keeping it in a neutral color palette makes it dressy enough to grab a bite, go window shopping and explore the city!

Colorblock with Some Flair

Another item you can wear more than one way? Our one-piece swimsuit. I love wearing a one-piece as a bodysuit. It’s another spring getaway essential you can wear beyond the beach! 

I can’t get enough of our crinkle one-piece – it has the most beautiful texture and low back. Pair the suit with our fun flare pants for a color-blocking moment. Throw on the white button-up and take your look from beach to street!

Monochromatic & Sporty

Spring also means the start of bike short season! I live for a matching set, so our OG Groove Bike Short and top needs to be added to your packing list. The lettuce hem and rib texture adds the cutest details. Add our white button up on top to break up the monochromatic look, and finish with a bright sandal for a pop of color. Now you’re ready to hit the boardwalk in style!

Hope these looks give you some packing inspo for your next getaway! Can’t wait to see how you style your white button up. Happy spring, Aerie fam!
