With the hottest brands promoting midriff baring styles and sleeveless numbers this summer, it seems like the skimpier the outfit, the better. Though you may feel the urge to full-heartedly embrace this style during the scorching summer months, a linen button-down shirt can be a more practical alternative to your crocheted bikini top or bandeau, all while maintaining a similar aesthetic.

Browsing for the latest trends in street style, the prominent theme seems to be “All Festival, All the Time,” which is a mixture of ‘70s-style fashion with a bohemian flare. This Fashionisto has pulled off a more subdued version of the trend. Having anxiety about embracing the festival look with full-force? Just take a few notes from this Fashionisto. Wearing thin, off-white linen gives this Fashionisto a relaxed summertime vibe. Alternatively, feminize your outfit by pairing a button-down with a trapeze dress. Accessorize with a suede fringe bag and temporary tattoos, and you’ll look totally vintage.

An easy item to add to almost any outfit, a linen button-down should be named a closet essential. As seen with a pair of navy shorts and Vans, this Fashionisto has put together a great daytime look. When transitioning to nighttime wear, swap out the shorts for a pair of skinny jeans and you have yourself a casual evening outfit—the button-down is especially perfect for those chillier nights.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Comfort is an absolute necessity and this button-down is loose and cool, which reflects my casual sense of style. I’ve had this shirt forever and I never get tired of it.”
