A style that everyone should adopt is the classic look of a button-down and slacks. While many may feel this is a look that only men can rock, androgyny is always welcome in the fashion world. When done correctly, this look can be pulled off by any woman as well. Gone are the days of wearing an undershirt and unbuttoned oxford over it because it’s time to make use of those buttons that someone or some machine worked so hard to sew on.
Men can accessorize by adding a tie and women can by adding a collared necklace. The best part about a button-down and just about any outfit with one is that by changing your accessories, you can go from day to night or casual to classy. Men can add a pair of oxfords while women can add a smart pair of classic heels. While this Fashionisto opted for a pair of tan slacks, don’t be afraid to try on a pair of patterned pants or bold colors for summer. While the look was casual he decided to add a pair of dress shoes, sunnies and a matte black watch.
The button-down is a classic piece and will never go out of style. This is something that can be invested in because it can be worn year round and for many years to come after that. For Fashionistas, Zara has the perfect example of a light, feminine button-down. Fashionistos should stay away from softer silhouettes and make sure the top has structure like this one from All Saints.
