I always try to, when making shirts, make them as low maintenance as I possibly can. So blouse collars, abscence of cuffs, and in this instance it is taken from a man's shirt style so I havn't needed any buttons. I think this gives it a nice minimal look (and minimal effort, yes!)
I love wide leg trousers, again because of ease of wear, so comfortable to get into them after days of leg restriction in skinny's. I have loved the ankle swingers popping up on quite a few of the A/W shows. To be done soon I think!
