I would bet that there is not a single Fashionisto’s closet that doesn’t have at least one button-down. Button-downs are to Fashionistos as the LBD are to Fashionistas. They are a classic staple that can easily be transformed to meet the occasion.
Take this Fashionisto, for example. His checked button-down has a pretty traditional cut and pattern. Given the makeup of this shirt, the options are really endless. It is all in the styling. With a shirt like this, if paired with khakis and loafers, you would be all set to head to an interview, meet with a professor or even a date night with your lady friend. Or, as this Fashionisto illustrates, go casual with your button-down. Roll up the sleeves, throw on a pair of a skinny jeans and don’t forget your backpack as you head out to class.
