Celebs are breaking out their white button-ups left and right
“The 1” summer trend you need to hop on? A white button-up, and particularly, one that’s cropped à la Taylor Swift.
In between stops on her Eras Tour, the 33-year-old singer is spending time in New York City, and she’s serving plenty of noteworthy looks: Last month, she carried an ultra-practical crossbody bag, last week, she wore beige summer sneakers, and this week, she wore a plain and simple shirt style that literally anyone can easily pull off.
Swift’s long-sleeve white button-up top was cropped and gathered at the waist, and along with her black criss-crossed waistband shorts she had on, hails from the brand R13. The shirt has a heftier price tag, coming in at $450, and both the shirt and shorts are available at Nordstrom. To round out the look, she added a brown bag and $190 coordinating leather sandals that were part of a collaboration between brands A. Emery and Matteau.

Turns out, the “Cruel Summer” singer isn’t the only one who’s had the idea to wear a white button-up shirt — Swift’s was just a bit cooler, as in it was ideal to be worn during a warmer day. Last month, both Jennifer Garner and Gisele Bündchen wore full-length versions of the classic white button-up shirt, or at least that’s what we think since they both wore them tucked in. Jennifer Lopez, Camila Cabello, Katie Holmes, and Florence Pugh have also worn the versatile style.
Not to be confused with a button-down, which generally has an extra set of buttons on the collar to fasten them down, a button-up is an everyday basic that you can wear with practically everything: Layer it on top of dresses, wear it over your swimsuit, or even throw it on post-yoga.

There is a common misconception with crop tops: not all of them require you to show off your midriff. Swift didn’t, and with this cotton shirt from Everlane, you certainly don’t have to either. It’s long enough to keep you covered, but still short enough to show off a unique waistband or a classic belt, too. It also has an oversized fit, one that won’t immediately show sweat stains, and a pocket in front.
Describing it as an “easy spring essential,” one shopper said it’s “so soft and light” and “a more sophisticated way to wear the cropped trend.” A second shopper commented on the material: “The cotton somehow feels both substantial and featherweight — beautifully smooth and light and… silky.”

A long-sleeve shirt might be doable for most of the summer, but there’s inevitably going to be at least one day when you need a shirt with shorter sleeves. In those instances, opt for the Y-Neck Button-Up Shirt from Madewell, which has a uniquely shaped collar and short sleeves, and it is crafted from a summer-friendly cotton material.
It’s not technically cropped, but it’s definitely shorter than some of the oversized options we’ve seen on A-listers. Plus, you can always twist it and tuck it under your bra or camisole for your own DIY crop top.

Just as wool is to winter, linen is to summer. There’s also this on-sale cropped linen shirt from Banana Republic Factory that gathers at the wrist instead of at the waist.
You can also grab a pair of sandals similar to the pair the singer had on, too. The straps will keep them from sliding off, and they look comfortable enough to wear to dinners, concerts, and more. Take a page out of Swift’s book, and keep scrolling to shop for more white button-ups,
