Button Down Shirts but Fashionable

When I think about a button down shirt, I automatically think about office wear or formal wear . And we agree that the button down can be very handy if you need to be looking professional at work, say for an interview or big meeting. It is crisp, fresh and looks amazing teamed with other formal wear such as a pencil skirt and heels. This being said, the humble button down shirt, isn’t going to win any awards for its style and originality, any time soon.

If you love wearing your button down but are worried about slipping into the abyss of boringness then don’t worry.  Check out these other ways that you can don this wardrobe staple to make you look like you’re going to own a catwalk while staying classy, stylish and most importantly…professional.

With PJs

Sport a bedtime/chic (if that’s a thing) look by wearing a silk button-down top and check print, cropped pants.

Off-the-Shoulder

Open a few more buttons and drape the shirt off your shoulders like a bardot style shirt blouse. If the weather is ok and you don’t mind showing a bit of skin then wear nothing underneath or you could play about with some layering techniques if you need a bit of coverage.

Retro Vibes

Bring back decades past with an open striped button-down with high-waisted pants. Finish it off with vintage-esque accessories like rectangular shades and high cut sneakers with straps.

Transition Piece

Going out after work with colleagues but don’t know what to wear? Go fro girl boss to fashion icon by simply tying the bottom of your shirt to show a bit of midriff. This will totally transform your look and nobody will have clue you’ve come straight from the office.

Playfully Mismatched

Inject some fun into your style by pairing polka dot button-down in a bright colour with an unexpected plaid midi skirt.
