I consider this button front shirt to be an absolute must-have in my closet. I had one for years before I upgraded to this one, but I didn't know if it would work to recreate Alessandra's look. Her shirt appears to be a lightweight softer fabric, while mine is a bit more structured. I was surprised how well it worked in this outfit though, and "good enough" is my preference if that means being able to use something I already own! Would you wear Alessandra's look?
