3 WAYS TO STYLE A WHITE BUTTON DOWN SHIRT

A white button down shirt is one of the most essential pieces in a stylish wardrobe.

Over the years, I’ve spent a good amount of time collecting and investing in simple solid white button down shirts. I love exploring the variety of fabrics (silk, cotton, satin), styles, cuts and price points. 

I remember my first proper white shirt being a hand-me-down from my dad’s closet. Yes, you read right. That might explain why till this day, I’m drawn to oversized shirts.

My favourite way of styling the white shirt button down shirt is in a casual way. I love rolling up the sleeves, undoing a few buttons and tucking it into a bottom. On some days, I wear it as a shirt dress with a pair of  shorts underneath (hot summer days).

There are endless ways to dressing this piece but here’s a look book showing 3 of my favourite ways.

What is your favourite way to wear this staple piece? Let me know! 

Until next time,

    I love outfit number three. The skirt and the handbag definitely made the outfit stand out! Plus the editing is bomb!
