Crisp cotton shirts are the epitome of formal work wear – they go well with trousers and skirts. But the one thing I dread is the peeping gap between the buttons! It was especially a problem with shirts that weren’t tailored to my measure and only fit me just decently. I would try to find some temporary solutions for it – I would carry safety pins with me and the button line of my shirts were lined with safety pins or fashion tape. They would work but also ruin my shirts!
Also top of mind for Vogue’s editor-in-chief this season is sustainability, thanks in no small part to Stella McCartney’s efforts around the issue. “Stella, obviously, must be feeling so proud and in a way so vindicated right now,” says Wintour of McCartney’s early eco-activism. “This is an issue that Stella had championed for 10, 15, 20 years, and the world is paying attention.”
Now other brands like Marks & Spencers are also beginning to launch this feature: Bursting at the buttons?
It’s such a simple design feature that I can’t believe it’s not present as an essential feature in all womens’ shirts. I hope more women find this feature in our shirts that puts an end to embarrassing peeps!
