A white button-down has always been one of my go-to shirts–it’s comfy, it’s chic, and it can be styled so many ways!
I love a good relaxed, oversized, cotton button-down, so it’s not too structured and doesn’t make you feel like you are wearing work attire. Having it slightly oversized also helps you style it multiple ways [like tucking it in or tying it at the waist].
I’m wearing the Everlane Silky Cotton Oversized Shirt [sold out in white] and I also recommend this identical Everlane Silky Cotton Relaxed Shirt. I own both, and the only difference was that the Oversized Shirt has a pocket and ran extra large. I wear a 00 in the Oversized and 0 in the Relaxed shirt. [I will include the Relaxed shirt info and sizing below].
1. With Your Favorite Denim
You can’t go wrong pairing a white button-down with your favorite denim for a classic, chic look that will never go out of style!

2. With a Midi Skirt
To dress up your white button-down, pair it with a midi skirt. I prefer tying my shirt at my waist to help cinch at the waist and give it a more structured look [it’s also easier than tucking into a skirt like this that shows any bumps and lumps from the extra fabric!].

3. Layered Over A Tank/Cami
A white button-down works perfectly as a layering piece in the summer. Wear it over any cami or tank for a chic layered look or for extra coverage [and it’s especially great for covering any bra straps!].

4. With Wide-Leg Pants
For an effortlessly chic look [and comfy!] look, pair wide-leg pants with your white button-down. It works equally well for in the office as well as out of the office!

5. As a Beach Cover-Up
Ditch buying and packing a beach cover-up, and instead wear your white button-down! I practically lived in this all week long while I was in Hawaii.
