One may seek, “how to style a button down shirt” thinking it’s hard to achieve. When in actuality its fairly easy! There are a few factors that go into play when choosing how to pull off this look. Keep reading to learn about what to look for and how to style this classic chic closet staple.
Elements To Styling A Button Down Shirt
There are a few things to consider when purchasing ‘The One’ when it comes to selecting a button down shirt. Today’s subject will be a classic oversized white button down. We will go over what to look for and most importantly how to wear it.
Work With Good Material
I’ll always say to achieve this look and pull it off effortlessly yet classy, make sure the material is 100% cotton. You can get the cheapest of the cheap tops but cotton just gives it a polished look.
Size Doesn’t Matter
Buying a button down shirt is that one time when size doesn’t count… in terms of going larger. The larger the shirt the more versatile. What I find is that not only does an oversized top offer a ‘cool’ look, it also can serve as a versatile piece. I’ve seen where people take large tops and create different looks from skirts to wrap tops.
Be careful with going too oversized.. whereas you still want it to be flattering to your body. And if it isn’t, your tuck, twist, and tie game has to be STRONG.
The Shirt Of Choice
In the case of this look I found this oversized shirt on Shein. I followed my own above advise and found this 100% cotton frock quite easily. To my delight this button down also has buttons down the back. I instantly knew it would be a great fit and could be worn with multiple looks.
Seriously This shirt can be worn so many ways. With jeans, with shorts, with a skirt, open and on top of a swim suit. The possibilities are endless. A oversized button down shirt is 100% a closet staple that every girl should have.
Styling The Button Down Top
I styled the top with the perfect fitting light wash jeans I snagged from Boohoo. They have a split hem which I love especially when wearing heels. I lucked up and found a pair of chic leopard print strap block heals from Boohoo. For this look, went a little heavy on the accessories by choosing some thick gold hoops I found at Target for less than $10.00, my go-to Vibeszn “Ash”, “Horoscope”, and Buddha pendant necklaces.
Target also saved the day with a few gold rings. The shirt is really oversized so I simply tucked the front portion in. I opened the back buttons allowing the back of the garment to fall effortlessly exposing just enough booty. For my bag I went with my recently purchased Jumbo Gucci GG Pouch.
I felt a strong desire to wear a bright read lip, so I wore “Haute Mess” from The Lip Bar, found at Target. Gosh, I love Target.
——————————> A Little Hint About Jeans
If you’re petite, get petite jeans. If you’re tall, get tall jeans. I’m 5’2 so petite jeans have been a new discovery and staple for me. Not only are they the perfect length they fit in all the right places perfectly. I never have to worry about having jeans hemmed/altered
Tall girls the same rule applies, the length is designed for your luscious legs. Say goodbye to high-waters and weird cuts. Boohoo and Pretty Little Thing are great about offering either or if you so happen to fall into the short or tall category
