the white button down. an infamous closet staple. i love mine, but recently i’ve been loving my boyfriend’s even more.
an oversized button down has such an effortless, off duty look to it. like i’m totally trying…but not too hard. half tuck it into denim shorts like i did here, pair it with biker shorts, or (if you’re tiny enough) wear it solo as a dress and belt it. i envy you short babes.
on a more practical note, it’s such a breezy piece that you can wear it throughout the summer no problem. trust me, i’m from texas.
so what if your SO doesn’t have a white button down, or maybe you just want to buy your own oversized option so you don’t have to keep borrowing theirs? if you’re shopping in menswear, it’s good to note the sizing. a men’s dress shirt is typically sized by the neck size and sleeve length. so do some guesstimating there based on your body type. if you’re shopping for menswear somewhere more casual, like ZARA, i’d get your same size. a medium in men’s is much bigger than a medium in women’s. shopping in the ladies section? i recommend going up 2 sizes in a women’s style.
also, let’s not forget how easy it is to find a white button down at almost any thrift store! men’s sections are always full of great pieces like oversized button downs and blazers.
