4 Easy Ways to Style a Button Down


One of my favorite pieces in my closet is an oversized denim button down that I found at a thrift store in the men's section 5 years ago. I wear it every year, every season, and it never fails to be my go to piece when I don’t know what to wear. Let me share with you some of my favorite button down looks and styling tips.


button down and biker shorts
  • Biker shorts/leggings
  • Closed button down with a half-tucked (I love a good half-tuck!)
  • Favorite pair of sneakers

Add some edge by putting on a graphic T-shirt and using the button down as a cardigan. If it starts getting a little hot throughout the day just tie it around your waist for a chic 90's vibe.


    mends button down as a dress

    • Oversized button down closed from the waist down, make sure it's long enough to act as a dress
    • Add a slim belt to accentuate the waist
    • Bold earrings with minimalist rings
    • A pair of squared-toe heels or pointed pumps for a classic look

    If you want to tone down the look take out the belt, close the shirt from the bust down, add a pair of flat sandals, and throw your hair in a high ponytail. Tada!

    • Oversized button down with an exaggerated front knotleave the top unbuttoned to reveal the bandeau
    • Midi length printed skirt
    • Block sandals
    • Bold color bag for a fun spring/summer look



    • Button down shirt with rolled up sleeves
    • Neutral colored high waisted wide-leg trousers (any high waisted pants will be perfect)
    • Low top converse (they will forever be a classic!)
    • Sleek top bun for an effortless look

    Don't forget to grab your tote bag for all the market goodies!
