The "It" Necklaces For Summer


Statement necklaces are constantly being reinvented each season. We've seen them covered in bling, decked out in an array of metals, and occasionally spikes. This summer's "it" necklaces are taking a walk on the colorful side. They are all about the tassels and pom poms.

These necklaces are festive, bright, and perfect for adding a bit of texture to an outfit. With a hint of boho flare, they add a touch of whimsy to your every day outfits.

Pom poms and tassels are definitely having a moment. You can find them on just about everything this season. Pillows, throws, bedding, purses, and shirts are just a few items we've seen trimmed in these popular adornments.


These necklaces range from simple to highly embellished. So whether you are a minimalist or someone who loves to layer, you are bound to find a style that fits your preference.

How to Wear A Graphic T-Shirt


Looking to add a playful edge to your summer outfits? Try a graphic tee! They are incredibly versatile and add a fun twist to a variety of looks. Graphic t-shirts are not reserved for casual outfits alone, you can absolutely wear them with dressier pieces. Pairing them with a skirt looks classy and sophisticated. We especially love a skirt with a pattern, it adds depth and personality to an outfit.

Don't forget to accessorize! Graphic tees look ultra stylish paired with a statement necklace. Try opting for one with tassels, they are a huge trend right now. We especially love this one from Nordstrom.


One of the best things about a graphic t-shirt is that it's inexpensive and easy to find. So, if you're wanting to spruce up your summer wardrobe, picking up a graphic top is the perfect place to start!

Summers Most Wearable Trend


One of the exciting things about fashion is that there is no right or wrong way to showcase your style. Whether you live in the city, the suburbs, or the country your geographical location should not limit your creativity to express yourself through your wardrobe. One of this summers most sought after trends is Western inspired. You don't have to live out west to appreciate this trend so go ahead and break out those cowboy boots! Just because it's summer doesn't mean that you have to lose the layers. Looking for an easy way to add some personality to your outfit? Try layering with a fringe cardigan or a fringe purse.



 Cowboy boots are a fun way to add some flare to a cute summer dress. So whether you are heading out to lunch with the girls or enjoying music from your favorite concert try complimenting your look with a western touch!

How To Look Fierce in Cobalt


Top Buttons kicks off each season with a stylish photo shoot showcasing some of the latest trends. We love the statement made when choosing a bold color like cobalt for an everyday outfit. Checkout some of the photos from our Summer shoot on how to look fierce in cobalt.

 Accessorizing with calming, warm shades can help tone down the powerful statement cobalt brings to an outfit. You can do this by adding a soft pink or tan necklace as seen here to complete a needed contrast in the overall look.


 Throw on a pair of lightly distressed denim, skinny jeans and your casual outfit is complete!



Cobalt is such a fun color to play around with. It allows us ladies to feel confident and fearless! Two personality traits that come in handy when interning at the office. Throw on a black blazer with a striped top and gold accessories and you are ready to take on the world!

Why You Should Invest In A Lace Dress


A lace dress is always nice to have in your clothing arsenal. It's classy, elegant, and versatile. What we love about this blush dress is that it can easily transition from day to night. During the day it can be worn with casual sandals or even wedges, and at night you can throw on some patent leather pumps for a dressier look. Lace is a wise investment because it's a classic, it will never go out of style. It always looks chic and polished.  Having quality dresses that stand the test of time are essentials to have our closets stocked with.

The Ultimate Color Combo: Blush And White


Ask any fashion expert or fashionista and they will tell you that neutrals are the building blocks of a successful wardrobe. These staples allow you to easily mix and match pieces along with creating a solid base to incorporate colors and patterns. Neutrals are an absolute must have in every girl's closet. IMG_8826

When you think of neutrals, you automatically think black, white or grey, but blush is a neutral that is a wonderful addition to any closet. It’s ultra feminine and can be worn with many color palettes and patterns.

A popular color combination to wear is blush and white. These two neutrals complement each other well and the addition of gold in the accessories adds a bit of glam and polish to the look.


What's your favorite neutral or color combo to wear? Let us know in the comments below!

The Perfect Everyday Summer Look


The best summertime outfits are the ones that are quick and easy to put together and throw on for those last-minute plans. We think Annie illustrates this idea perfectly, and oh-so-adorably. image1

We love pretty summer looks that are low-maintenance. Hair is probably best when kept as natural as possible since heat usually equals frizz! Minimal makeup is also a good idea. This season is the best time of the entire year to let your natural beauty shine and let those sun freckles make their grand appearance. Really all you need is a little powder and a few swipes of waterproof mascara.

We are all about fun accessories here at Top Buttons and love the idea of a few stackable bracelets to subtly dress up an outfit. Right now, we are obsessed with Cotton On's foundation bracelets. They're only $1-$2, which makes stacking them affordable, and best of all, 100% of the proceeds get donated to Cotton On's charity.

Muscle tees add a little edge to a look. Stay comfy and covered by throwing on a bandeau top when choosing a top with sides that dip slightly.


The casual take on denim that is super hot right now is a cute cuff at the bottom. Make sure your jeans are skinny enough so that the cuff is hugging the leg! Converse (Annie is rocking white Chuck Taylors) is a perfect comfortable throw-on sneaker that is fun and timeless.

The Moto Jacket For Summer


The moto jacket was the hot ticket item to keep the chill off this past season. For many, it was a daily staple worn with anything and everything. However, with temperatures rising, it's time to find a lighter alternative that keeps us cool without  sacrificing the edgy factor of the moto jacket. Meet the moto vest, the trendy sleeveless version of the moto jacket. It's lightweight and versatile enough to be a staple in your summer wardrobe. Layering always adds a wow factor to an outfit, this vest is perfect for the warmer months.


Like the moto jacket, this vest comes in a vast variety of colors, prints, and materials. We love chambray because it can basically be worn with anything. We're all about stocking our closets full of pieces that can be styled several different ways. For more vest inspriration and ways to wear them, click here and here.

Get the Look: Kristin Cavallari

This Hills and Laguna Beach star is known for being spotted on the streets wearing some of the hottest trends in the most put-together ways. We love Kristin Cavallari (who is now a mommy of two!) for her simple, classy style and the way she mixes trendy pieces with timeless pieces. She provides wearable looks that are oh-so-cute and oh-so-easy to copy! kristin-cavallari-levis




Move over, little black dress! The LWD is the hottest classic look for this summer. A white dress can be dressed up or down (just like a black dress) and can be mixed with almost any piece. We love the way Kristin wore her white maxi dress with a classic denim jacket.



Drapey pants are making a huge comeback this season. They're adorable, versatile, comfortable (perfect for summer traveling), and come in an endless array of patterns. What's not to love? Kristin dresses her drapey pants up with low heels and a casual white top which matches the pattern in her pants. We also love the idea of going all-out comfortable and pairing them with Birkenstock-style sandals (a hot summer item).



Lastly, Kristin was spotted wearing a simple, yet stunning outfit while shopping on the streets. Her distressed denim adds a casual flair to her leather shoes and black top, adding a subtle edge to her sleek look.

3 Ways To Wear Gingham

The go-to print for spring is gingham. It's a classic that is re-surfacing as a must have pattern to have in your wardrobe this season. Here are a few ways to style this charming, ladylike print. Wear it loose and untucked with a pair of distressed boyfriend shorts. Top it off with a hat, aviators, and clutch and you have an edgy, laid back outfit that's perfect to wear on a casual day out on the town.

Dresses are key this spring. Go beyond the standard gingham print shirt and wear a dress. This one is adorable.

Be daring and pair gingham with another pattern, like floral. A tip for successfully mixing prints is making sure the patterns have a grounding color that flows throughout the look. In this outfit, blue is in the floral top and the pants. The coral shoes complement the color found in the shirt.

Shop Spring's Hottest Trends: Long Vests and Fringe


Long vests and fringe are two popular trends this season. They were all over the Spring/Summer 2015 runways and were two of the bigger hits to grace the catwalk. Long vests are perfect for layering, adding interest to an outfit, and creating a long, lean silhouette. You can achieve a large variety of looks depending on your vest. From minimalist to bohemian, there’s a style that fits every personality.

70's inspired boho looks are huge this season, hence the comeback of fringe. You can find it on just about everything, from skirts to tops to bathing suits. It's fun, carefree, and slightly edgy.

IMG_8006WEB The above look knocks out two trends at once. The lightweight vest with fringe embellishment is the highlight of this outfit. Not to mention the on-trend fedora and chunky sandals.

Classy Boho Style


It’s no secret that we have a deep love for bohemian style at Top Buttons. We always enjoy highlighting an outfit that’s on point whenever we spot one. It's always refreshing to see how people take a popular style and truly make it their own. There are many expressions of boho style, from ultra 70's to romantic-chic. What stands out with Katy’s outfit is that it has a distinct classy, feminine vibe to it. She’s incorporated pearl earrings into her look which adds a classic, refined feel to her outfit.


Kimono’s are more popular than ever this season. This cream kimono with lace and fringe detail is a smart investment as it is a neutral and can be worn with several different pieces in your wardrobe.

Katy’s necklace is the epitome of boho chic and her Alex and Ani bangles add a fun, care-free flare to her overall look.

The Accessory Every Girl Needs This Spring


The one item you need to invest in this spring is (drumroll)....a hat! It is the accessory that adds a definite "wow factor" to an outfit. You can wear hats with shorts, pants, or our personal favorite-- dresses. Besides our trusty mascara, hats are a girls best friend! We can always count on them to make us look chic no matter how bad our hair day is. Priscila's look is simple, yet sophisticated with a sundress, button- up shirt, and sandals. The icing on the cake is the hat, which pulls the outfit together making it look like a glamorous afternoon on the town.

Luckily, you don't have to look too far for the perfect hat these days. Since, they are extremely popular this season,  you can find budget-friendly hats of all styles at Target, H & M, and Forever 21.


Dress: Target (old), similar / Hat: Target  / Shoes: New York And Co (old), similar / Shirt: Ralph Lauren (old), similar

If you've never worn a hat before, this is the time to branch out. Stop by your local Target and  try on a few different styles. From floppy hats to fedoras, there are a ton of options. Not all shapes and sizes will work, but the more you try on, the easier it will be to find one that fits your style.

Will you be wearing a hat this season? If so, what's your favorite style? Let us know in the comments below.

Celebrity Hair Inspiration for Spring 2015


Spring is in full swing and summer is just around the corner. We are turning to celebrities for the scoop on this season's hottest hair trends with an emphasis on styles that are fun, care-free and easy to manage. Last summer, we highlighted the long bob, and are happy to report that it's still trending this season. Celebrities like Lauren Conrad, Lucy Hale and Emma Roberts are all successfully rocking this look. We especially love how they tuck one side behind the ear, which adds a little edge and  shows off their statement earrings.


Taylor Swift was recently spotted at the iHeartRadio Music Awards with a change to her long bob: thick, choppy bangs with lots of volume. Her awards for the night included Artist of the Year and Song of the Year with "Shake it Off" among others. Taylor's music and looks are adored by fans and this night was proof that she still has it.



We haven't forgotten about the long-haired beauties! For long hair, it's all about long layers and subtle ombre (aka, 'sombre'), illustrated perfectly by Minka Kelly (above). 'Sombre' is taking the trendy ombre hair color and making it more subtle and blended by adding layers to frame the face and brightening the ends with a natural color.


Kenza Zouiten is a great example of how long layers combined with subtle ombre can create a care-free, beautiful style for long hair. Bangs blow-dried away from the face matched with a deep side part can help achieve this look.

Get the Look: AnnaSophia Robb's Romper


Soul Surfer star, 21-year-old AnnaSophia Robb took the photo above (which was published in Teen Vogue) while in Florence, Italy. This travel friendly outfit is ideal for spring break traveling and family vacations as we approach the summer months. AnnaSophia's outfit is totally adventure-worthy. With celebrities rocking rompers all over the streets as the weather gets warmer, AnnaSophia wears it best in our book. The romper is a classic piece that has a history dating back to the early 20th century, but is making a huge comeback. Rompers are cute, comfortable and provide coverage while still being cool enough for the summer, or wearable when it's colder in the evenings when paired with a cardigan. We love how AnnaSophia's romper features long sleeves and a button-up look along with a really fun pattern. AnnaSophia accessorizes her plaid romper with a neutral-colored belt, sunglasses, comfortable flats and a long gold pendant necklace. The trick to wearing a romper is choosing one with an interesting pattern or material and having fun pairing it with accessories.

Good news! You can get a look similar to AnnaSophia's, all at Forever 21, and all for under $60.

Blogger Style: Get The Look For Under $100


Boyfriend shorts, panama hats, and striped shirts are just a few of my favorite items for spring and summer. I absolutely love this look worn by style blogger Kat Tanita. It's perfectly casual, yet chic all at once. On a recent stroll through Target, I came across a few items that looked very similar to Kat's look. To my delight, the entire outfit was under $100. This is an amazing deal, especially since the Rag and Bone shorts alone from her look are $209! Although, I love  Rag and Bone, a cheaper alternative is always a plus. Also, there is a promotion going on now through March 28, buy 1 get 1 50% off clothing, shoes, and accessories. That makes this outfit even more affordable!

The Scarf Says It All This Winter


The scarf is by far one of fashion's best accessories. It turns the simplest of outfits into something to talk about. Whether it's just draped around your neck or intricately twisted and wrapped, it's always the loudest statement of the outfit.  


The scarf can be worn in any way during almost any season, depending on the fabric and color. For spring, wear a lightweight, floral-print scarf lightly draped around the neck. For fall and winter, almost anything goes: chunky, knitted, furry, animal print, layered, long, you name it! It's the easiest way to express your individual style and keep you warm on those windy winter days (which are few and far between here in Florida).

If you aren't particularly savvy with the fancy twisting and wrapping techniques, infinity scarves are your best friend. Just throw it around your neck, and the scarf does all the talking. Here, Chelsea is sporting furry, fringy, and printed infinity scarves. Each give the same outfit uniquely different vibes and make their own statements!
