Ah, the white button down. A staple that is both classic and versatile, simple and malleable. It can be dressed up or down with seemingly limitless possibilities. It can be made to look ultra-conservative by buttoning it up high and wearing it with a simple jeweled necklace, or pared down by wearing it unbuttoned with boyfriend jeans to look effortlessly sexy.
