6 Ways To Wear A White Button-Up

Get down with a button-up! This wardrobe basic—that’s far from basic—can be weaved into a variety of looks from day to night. Whether it’s worn as an extra layer or as a nothing-to-wear day savior, see six ways to wear this timeless staple.

Wear It: Under A Dress

For a quick way to switch up your workwear look, layer a sleeveless dress—or sweater—over a crisp fitted shirt. This retro yet classic combo will keep you lightly layered, perfect for chilly AC-blasted offices.

Wear It: As A Crop Top

Dress up casual bottoms with a flirty, front-tied top. Achieve the cropped length by leaving the two bottom buttons undone, then gently tie the two ends together. The playful, summer feel pairs well with high-waisted skirts, pants or denim.

Stylist Tip: Try layering the faux crop top over dresses—like a maxi for a new way to wear your favorite seasonal staples.

Wear It: Combine With Culottes

The easiest (& most flawless) way of pulling off a fashion-forward trend like culottes is by pairing them with closet staples. Cuff the sleeves of a white button-up for a more relaxed, less-stuffy feel. Finish off the look with a simple belt and modern heels.

Wear It: Instead Of A Tee

Want to wear your loungewear outside of the house? You can! Wear fitted sweats or joggers with pointed pumps, a moto jacket and an updated button-up shirt (think: boyfriend-fit). Accessorize with a feminine hue like blush for a more approachable appeal.


Wear It: With A Vest

Pull together any look with a contemporary outer layer. Perfect for spring & summer, a sleeveless trench can transition from work to weekend when worn with casual fabric like denim. For a cool-girl feel, fold the lapels of the shirt back for a mock V-neck style.

Wear It: As A Jacket

Want a summer cover-up without the weight? Give any look a laid-back feel with an open button-up—opt for natural fabrics like linen or cotton. Go tone-on-tone with an all-white palette for a Hamptons meets west coast vibe.

Stylist Tip: Try wearing a white button-up as a beach cover up! Don’t own one? Sneak it from your partner’s closet—or ask your Stylist!
