Out of all the shirt styles to develop a crush on this season, we of course had to fall for the one that presents the biggest fashion conundrum — the boxy top. Designers like Rebecca Taylor, Yves Saint Laurent, and Jill Stuart showed them on the Spring runways, and our love affair began. They may seem a bit tricky to wear at first, but we've come up with a few easy, super-chic ways to blend this piece in seamlessly with the rest of your wardrobe. Check out our tips, then click through to see and shop our picks when you keep reading.

Do pair your boxy tee with a pencil skirt. The slimness of the skirt will balance out the boxiness, and it'll create a look that will work just as well for the office as it will for nighttime.

Don't underestimate the power of denim. With a boxy top, denim will always work in your favor. For a hip-length piece, skinny ankle-length jeans will add polish, especially when worn with a pair of chic flats. If your tee is a bit more cropped, opt for a high-waisted, wide-legged pair.

Do have fun with accessories! A long pendant necklace or multiple beaded necklaces will take your look from '80s workout status to a super sophisticated ensemble.
