I’ll keep it real with you. While growing up, every single magazine article seemed to spout the importance of a classic, white button down in a woman’s wardrobe. But I really didn’t get it. Some of it might have been the fact that they didn’t appeal to my teenage style sensibilities, but now in my thirties, I’ve fully come around. A white oxford is 100% on my list of must-haves. And if you’re wondering how to wear one yourself, here are five oversized button down outfits you can incorporate into your wardrobe!
Five Oversized Button Down Outfits
If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect oversized button down, I’m styling this one from Amazon. It’s the perfect affordable option. To achieve the oversized look that is currently on trend I sized up two sizes. For a more classic fit, stick with your true size.
White Button Down and Denim
One of my favorite ways to wear a button down is open over a tank, bodysuit, or long sleeve shirt. Make sure to keep the bottom layer slim-fitting!
Athleisure Button Down Outfit
Want to step up your athleisure game? Layering with a button down is the easiest way to step up your look. It works perfectly for shorts, leggings, or even workout dresses!
Oxford and Trousers Outfit
Here is another easy example of how to wear an open oxford as a jacket-style layer! So simple and chic.
Button Down Tucked Into Denim
It doesn’t get any more classic than a button down with denim. For a modern twist, keep it partially untucked. For a more classic spin, fully tuck in and add a belt!
White Button Down for the Office
For an office-ready look, pairing your oxford with trousers is the perfect match. It’s an always-classic combination that won’t go out of style.
