The White Button Down

Let’s face it—your classic white button down, though unrivalled against the other easy and comfortable pieces in your closet could use a style update. It’s a versatile item that can be paired with pretty much anything, so why it is that we often wear it to work so simply with a skirt or pair of pants? We’re over being boring with our styling. Why not wear it to the beach open over a swimsuit? How about tying it in a knot and wearing it over your favorite sundress? Better yet, wear it underneath your favorite dress on a chilly night. Wear your button down with your favorite pair of cut-offs to add a little edge to the classic item, or tie the shirt around your waist for a relaxed nineties vibe. Whatever way you choose to style it, the white shirt definitely deserves some time outside of office hours. Click through above to shop some of our favorite styles…
