4 Cool New Ways To Wear A White Button Down Shirt This Summer

Read any magazine article or style book and you can almost guarantee they’re going to recommend a white button down shirt as a total “closet essential.” And it’s not really surprising. This shirt can be quite flattering and is appropriate for many occasions.

My problem, though, is that classic white button downs can sometimes feel too boring and business casual. Can’t they be a little more fun? Turns out the answer is, yes. With just a few simple tweaks like a tie waist or a shortened sleeve length, the classic white button front shirt can feel fresh and anything but basic.

Here are a few fun takes on the old standby to give a try this summer:

Madewell Short Sleeve Tie Front Shirt ($65)

 

Tie Front

Tie front tops are everywhere this summer and this pick from Madewell is one of our favorites. Wear it to work with a pencil skirt or on the weekend with denim shorts.

Caslon Linen & Cotton Long Sleeve Top ($69)

 

Collarless

Something as simple as removing the collar can make such a big difference when it comes to a white button shirt. This option is instantly more cool and less stuffy.

J.Crew Short Sleeve Button-Up Shirt ($69.50)

 

Short Sleeve

Another way to make the classic white button down shirt feel a little more casual? Shorter sleeves. This pick from J. Crew is perfection,

Topshop Bryony Tea Button Front Blouse ($50)

 

Tie Sleeve

Last but not least, consider updating the white button down with a style that ties at the sleeve. This is another trend that's not going anywhere anytime soon.
