Fashionistas have asked us, "How can I maximize custom clothing buttons to make my staple wardrobe items pop?" We're big fans of fashion staples that can be interwoven to design a dynamite personal wardrobe. However, staple clothing that can be easily matched with anything is, by definition, stuck in total Plain Jane mode. Luckily, you can maximize buttons to give your wardrobe more pizazz! We asked our Button Avenue sewing divas to share seven ways they work wardrobe magic using custom made buttons for clothes.
Gotta have an amazingly tailored pair of black pants. Not too casual, not too tight, not too dressy, just right—especially when you add the right custom made buttons for clothes. Change out the waist button from something common to something captivating with this sunny, brass shank Golden Girl.
Definitely need a rockin' pair of designer jeans that rep the latest trend. Skinny legs are still in, but we're holding out hope for a 70s bell comeback. Ready to make them pop? It's astonishing how jeans can flip from functional to fly just by changing out the waist snap with these impressive oval, hand carved horn Read Between The Lines custom clothing buttons.
Another must-have wardrobe staple is a casual shirt. Think pullover tops in this season's choicest reds, blues, greens and yellows. Sew a button at the neckline near the shoulder, or one button on each hip at the bottom hem for adorable pizazz. For this approach, we love the fresh, natural look of these carved bone Bull's Eye custom-made clothing buttons.
As a counterbalance to your casual shirt, get a dress shirt too. We recommend something loose and luscious in a light color. Add a pop of richness with fancy tortoise or plaid-patterned custom sewing buttons like our Oxford and Columbia.
Bottoms? Check. Tops? Check. Now on to dresses. Find a casual dress that's comfortable and lightweight. Take this opportunity to add more color and potentially a pattern to your wardrobe that you can enhance with buttons. This Playful Style shank has a floral shape with an essence of spring and summer cheer.
As a counterbalance to your casual dress, get a dressy one too. We're picturing something above the knee with a tantalizing fit in black, white or silver. Add a charming pop with these enchanting Effortless Chic floral buttons in a vertical row of four or five at the small of your back.
The Perfect Jacket
And finally, the piece de la deliciousness, the perfect jacket. It should land somewhere squarely between dressy and casual. A jean jacket? Too casual. A velvet bolero? Too dressy. An ultra-thin suede moto? Jackpot. Experiment with neutral colors that complement your plain tops and bottoms. And for the buttons, get Fearless pizazz!
