I used to think of button-downs as polished and preppy, the easy answer to a look that’s clean and classic. But enter 2017, and the simple button-down has come undone. We spotted the trend all over the Spring ’17 runways, referring to the pulled-apart shirt as “wardrobe disruption.” While the pieces you’ll see are still tailored, they’re purposefully ripped at the shoulder, slashed down the arm, or intended to wrap (not button-up at all). They have an asymmetrical, off-kilter fit. In short, they mess up your outfit — but in the best possible way.

Whether it can be an oversized sleeve that extends beyond the hands, lending your silhouette geometric shape, or loose sashes that hang from your cuffs to the ground, there are so many ways to leave the classic top behind. Read on to look the single most popular piece girls will be ‘gramming in the coming months, and get an early start by adding it to your wardrobe.
