NOT SO BASIC

A wardrobe staple and closet essential, the button down is a great go-to for work and everyday wear. While nothing is wrong with wearing it in a classic way, it’s always fun to step outside your comfort zone and style it in a way that stands out among the crowd. Here are a few of my top tips to do just that.

Style your button down with a semi-sheer top underneath, leaving all the buttons unbuttoned except for a couple at the bottom and tucked into into high-waisted pants. Layers are tried and true for adding interest and depth to your look, so when in doubt always think LAYERS!

Let your button down serve double duty and style it as a “light jacket” with a belt cinching in your waist. I love to button it all the way up, pull my hair back and add vintage statement earrings to create more unexpected touches with this styling.
