If I could only wear one top for the rest of my life it would undoubtedly be a button down shirt. For me, nothing looks more polished and put together than a crisp white button down. Not only do they look polished, but they’re also so comfortable and incredibly versatile. I really think of my button downs as some of the most important pieces in my wardrobe.
As a result, I’ve done my research on where to get the best buttons down shirts for any outfit or occasion. I have plenty in my closet that I never wear because the fit or fabric or drape just isn’t right. So to save you the time (and closet space!), I’ve rounded up what I think are the absolute best button down shirts, how to wear them and where to get them:
WITH JEANS & FLATS
For a cute daytime look I’ll wear this button down untucked (or half tucked) with skinny jeans, flats and a great bag.
AT THE OFFICE
For work, I’ll fully tuck this slim button down into a pair of black kick-flare pants, paired with heels and a leather jacket.
BY THE POOL
An oversized linen button down is the only coverup I wear by the pool. If it gets extra hot out, I’ll wear it unbuttoned or tied up.
TO DRESS UP
This silky button down is the best top for a formal two-piece outfit. I’ll tuck it into high-waisted wide-leg pants or a statement skirt, paired with heels, a clutch and some extra jewelry.
And all of these certainly don’t have to only be white! I just got a bunch from all the categories above in lavender, blue, navy and pink.
Happy Friday, friends! Thank you for reading.
