5 Ways To Wear A White Button Down That Don't Involve A Blazer Or Black Pants

Usually when anyone tells you to buy a white button down, it’s so you can wear it one way: under a blazer for the office. But this basic top is actually the most versatile piece you can have in your closet. Whether your style is preppy, edgy or even boho, there’s a way to wear this classic shirt to fit any and all of these categories. Here are 5 ways to wear a white button down that have nothing to do with your job.

Add A Statement Necklace 

Button your shirt all the way up (we promise, you won’t choke) and put a statement necklace right under the collar. This addition instantly makes your plain shirt into something special.

Wear It Under A Sweater

You don’t have to be preppy to do this one, it’s all about how you wear it! Choose a fitted white button-down, close it up all the way and have the collar pop out on top. It makes your usual sweater and jeans combo way more polished.

Unbutton At The Bottom And Tie The Ends

This is a more casual version of tucking your shirt in. If  you don’t want to have it hanging from your body, just leave the last button open and tie the two ends into a knot. This is also a great way to wear a white button down over a maxi dress.

Tuck It In Just At The Front

Your shirt should be loose and not fitted for this. Tuck it in just at the front and leave it hanging out the back. It doesn’t look awkward and actually gives an effortlessness to your outfit, especially if you wear heels.

Try Unexpected Pairings

There’s soooo many other ways to wear a white button down out of the office. You might not think to wear it with distressed jeans or leather pants and a moto vest, but it works.

See, the options for how to wear a white button down really are endless. And don’t forget, the button down doesn’t have to be simple just because it’s white. There’s plenty of options with embellished collars, gold buttons and other fun styles. Click the slideshow to shop our fave white button-downs and try some of these looks!
