6 Twists on the Classic Buttondown Shirt.
They may not be flashy like metallic midis or luxe like velvet boots, but classic button-down shirts are the unsung heroes of our wardrobe. Think about it: What else works as well with ripped jeans as it does with a pencil skirt? This season, shirting is finally getting its due, with refreshed takes on the classic silhouette. Here are six we love.
Contrasting stripes and extra-high cuffs give extra polish to this irregular shape (unlike those times we just buttoned our shirt wrong). The asymmetrical patchwork shirt when paired with a velvet mini skirt and ankle boots along side a statement clutch gives an edgy spice to this look.
Youthful embroidery is everywhere right now, and we love the classic Girl Scout vibes it adds to a starched oxford. Give this trendy piece a retro vibe by pairing with mom-jeans and nude stilettos, an addition could be to put in a cross-body bag.
A simple but oh-so-elegant update, bell sleeves make an otherwise demure fit feel extra breezy. Give this look a cooperate feel by pairing with fitted work pants and a flat shoes.
No manicure? No problem! This style has you (literally) covered. Just avoid reaching across the dinner table at all costs. Pair this with a fitted slip dress or switch it up and pair with a ripped jean for a casual look.
Comfy, versatile and waist-cinching, all at once. We just found our go-to weekend top. Paired with the perfect wide-legged trouser, a heeled sandals and clutch purse, we are set for a weekend lunch date.
The button-down’s usually prim placket gets turned on its side for a peekaboo effect.
