Not only were they popular on the runways this spring, but I’ve come to believe that a white button down shirt is a wardrobe staple. There are so many ways to wear a button down shirt that there’s no reason not to keep at least one in your closet. Whether you want to be more casual or dress yourself up for a job interview, the white button down shirt will be there for you. With so many options out there, here are six ideas for wearing a button down shirt to get you started!
Stylish Ways to Wear a White Button Down
It doesn’t take much to look classy, comfortable, and casual. All you need for this look is your trusty white button down shirt and a pair of jeans. If it’s a bit chilly outside, you can add a cardigan on top. For the most casual look, wear some sneakers. To class up this outfit, try wearing high heels! For more information, visit Wit & Delight.
A few special touches can make any outfit with a button down shirt ready for a job interview or just a day on the job. Here, the white button down shirt is paired with a simple blazer, clean-cut jeans, high heels, and some statement jewelry. This is a simple outfit you can put together with items probably already in your wardrobe. For more information, visit Lauren Goes Shopping.
Of course, one of the most classic combinations is a white button down shirt under the sweater of your choice. This creates a smooth, dapper look while also keeping you warm in chilly weather. A short-sleeve sweater creates a unique look, but a long-sleeve sweater that only allows the cuffs of your shirtsleeves to be exposed creates a stunning look.

In the Summer
There’s no need to put away your button down shirts when the summer weather rolls around. If you have a nice, lightweight button down shirt, you can pair it with your favorite pair of denim shorts for a nice warm-weather look. A cropped button down will work well with shorts, but you can also tuck in a longer shirt. For more information, visit Runway Chef.
The Sleeveless Dress
Here’s a fairly unique way to wear a button down shirt -- with a dress! This is a great way to still get use out of your sleeveless dresses when cold weather comes around. This combination creates a great look for the office or any time you want to look a little more professional. For more information, visit Wonder Wardrobes.
