Every girl should have at least a couple of stylish shirts in her wardrobe. A button-down, for instance, is always in style, no matter the season. If you don't wear it right, it's ho-hum. But with the right trendy touches, it's a stylish staple in your wardrobe, ready to take you anywhere.
Tuck a button-down blouse into a pair of wide-leg trousers and put on a pair of strappy sandals. This look is perfect for spring and summer, and is dressy enough for work, but casual enough for a luncheon party or other daytime gathering. Stick with a pattern on top and solid-color pants to elongate those legs and create a lovely proportion.
Pair a classic oxford button-down with a pencil skirt. Pairing a shirt that's menswear-styled with a feminine, fitted skirt works in your favor: It's a nice balance, and works for many occasions. Opt for solid colors in skirt and blouse if you're headed to work, or a fun leopard or zebra print skirt for an evening out with the girls.
Wear a sequin tank over top of your favorite button-down shirt. As long as you stick with a solid color shirt in a complementary shade, pretty much any color of sequin tank works. Add your dark-wash skinny jeans and some sky-high heels, and you've got yourself a killer outfit perfect for rockin' on a hot date or night out dancing with the girls.
Wear an oversized button-down shirt with a pair of leggings. You can go with a looser top because your pants are so fitted, so you're not losing your feminine shape. Better yet, add a thin belt in a neutral tone to define your waist and finish off the look perfectly. Add a cardigan over top, and wrap the belt around this for a trendy look.
