Every Woman Should Own These 5 Button Down Shirts

If there’s one shirt that every woman should own, it’s the button down. Not only is it incredibly versatile, but it’s also extremely flattering on just about every body type. Everyone knows the white button down shirt is essential, but don’t stop there. These are the other button down shirts you need in your closet.

Denim.

Here’s the truth: Denim button down shirts go with everything. On those days when you’re just not quite sure how to complete your outfit, the answer is usually the same… throw on a classic, casual and comfortable denim shirt. During the summer, we love wearing them with rolled-up sleeves and the tails tied together in front over a black maxi dress. In cooler weather, denim button downs look great loosely tucked into skinny black jeans and worn with heeled booties and a sleek camel coat.

Silk

It’s hard to envision a situation in which a woman could have too many silk blouses in her closet. Whether you prefer ones that are bright, pastel or printed (or, let’s be honest, all three), silk button downs are some of the most versatile and easily elegant articles of clothing in existence. Wear yours under a jacket for an ultra professional look, or on its own with a pair of tailored jeans or nicer slacks for a simple but fashionable business casual vibe. On the weekends, roll up the sleeves of that same shirt and wear it unbuttoned with a pair summer shorts or more casual denim to achieve a feminine style that’s simultaneously laid back and put together.

Plaid

There’s very little that’s cozier than a loose plaid button down on a brisk fall day… well, except maybe a loose plaid flannel button down on a chilly winter day. And you don’t have to be into ’90s grunge rock to pull of this look. With no shortage of color combos and types of plaid, finding one (or a few) that suits your style should be a cinch. On a late November weekend day, there’s nothing we’d rather be wearing than a plaid button down under a thick cardigan sweater atop a pair of skinny jeans and knee-high boots.

White

The crisp white blouse is a menswear staple that’s become just as essential in the female closet. Whether you pair it with a pencil skirt, jeans or pretty much anything else in your closet, your white button down will instantly make your outfit seem more put together. And though this item is basic, it’s certainly not boring. There’s tons of variety within the category of white button down, from boxy styles with wide, short sleeves to much more fitted options.

Chambray

Similar to denim but generally lighter in color and weight, chambray is the perfect fabric for spring and summer. Worn with a pair of crisp white jeans, a chambray button down is the perfect top for a warm day full of errands and social engagements. Chambray has a slightly more professional vibe than denim and is thus appropriate for many offices, but is also relaxed enough to wear on the weekends with a more casual outfit.
