Trend Watch: When It Comes To Buttoning, We're Going All The Way!

Oh fashion, how fickle it can be! We were just talking about the disappearing neckline, and now every time we turn around someone amazing-looking is wearing a blouse buttoned up to the chin (think Linda Carter before she turned into Wonder Woman). This nine-to-five staple definitely got a dose of cool on the spring 2010 runways—designers layered them, belted them, adorned them with jewels, and gave this geek-chic trend a sophisticated edge. First socks with sandals, now this. Could posh pocket-protectors be the Next Big Thing to lust for?
