It use to be that a white button down shirt was associated with stuffy, straight laced office attire and unimaginative drones who thought fashion was a four letter word. Well those days are gone in a big way, and the white button down has been reinvented into a fashion staple must have. There are many ways to style a white button down shirt—really the sky is the limit, and that is what makes the white button down such a sought after staple. It can be worn with jeans, with trousers, with skirts or shorts. You can dress it down for lunch with friends, or you could dress it up for a night on the town, or you could style it for day at the office. Jeans is definitely one of the more poplar items to pair with a white button down.

This is one of my favorite ways to wear a crop top, because I must admit I don’t really do the bare midriff look, just not my thing. Arielle of Something Navy, did a wonderful job pairing her high-low crop top and navy skirt with this white button down. With summer right around the corner pairing a crisp white button down with shorts is kind of a no brainer, we often see it paired with denim cut offs, but what about a printed cotton pair of shorts? Trish over at Fashion According to the Menu did exactly that and boy does she look great. And what could be better then a pair of great jeans, a simple white shirt and boho hat. Such a simple, easy breezy look that is not only effortless, but super on trend. Krystal from This Time Tomorrow who works as a merchandiser in the shopping and commerce department at Google really pulled it together for this look. I can see why she is a merchandiser.
So, do you own any white button downs? I just purchased my first one—a short sleeved number from Zara and I can’t wait to wear it. How do you wear your [/one_half][one_half][/one_half][/row_fluid] 1 :: 2 :: 3 :: 4 :: 5 :: 6
