There are so many looks that you can pull off using a button down shirt and it all just depends on the accessories that you wear with them as well as the bottoms and the shoes. They are super versatile and can be worn anytime, anywhere. A lot of women I know love a good button down shirt because it’s so easy to wear and it never goes out of style.

If you’re building a wardrobe that you can use for the years to come, it would be wise to invest in a few couple of good quality button down shirts in various colors (granted that you already have the basic and neutral colors, that is). Here are some stylish ways to wear a button down shirt.

  • Cool and casual – if you’re looking for a foolproof way to wear a button down shirt, do a casual look. You can achieve this by wearing your button down shirt with your favorite pair of jeans. Classic denims and a white button down is a really popular combination during spring and summer. Don’t forget to finish up the look with cool and comfy shoes. Heels are great if you want to make your outfit look more polished but if you’re after total comfort, you can opt for ballerina flats or sandals for a girly look or sneakers for a more casual vibe.
