Think you’re not a button down kind of person? Well honey, it might be time to think again. A super-classic piece, a button down is a wardrobe essential for any closet. No matter what your style, you’ll be sure to make use of this versatile item. Not convinced? Stay with me…
If you’re a minimalist with a clean, classic style, keep it simple and effortless by pairing a button down with you favorite jeans.
Looking to mix it up? Tuck a button down into a skirt. Pairing it with a pencil skirt is perfect for work, but they also look great with more casual pieces.
Tying a button up is a fresh way to style your skirts of any type, but it also converts your favorite dresses into a completely new look. Awesome.
Layering up is a great way to add depth to an outfit. Just add a cardigan, sweater, or even a sparkly blouse. Bonus points for pattern mixing!
Popping on a blazer is a great way to add a little interest (and warmth)!
Or toughen your look up with some leather.
And don’t forget: if you suffer from puckering around the buttons like I do, fashion tape will be your friend!
Have I convinced you to pick up a button down (or five)?
