Reimagine The Classic Button-Down With These Inspired Looks


The button-down long-sleeve shirt is a closet staple every woman should own. With access to multiple sizes, colors, and prints, we can use this shirt style to maximize our wardrobe in so many ways. In particular, a white button-down is the most classic of them all and can be worn as a comfortable go-to for countless daytime looks. With most of us returning to work, as well as temperatures rising here in the US to make way for summer, our wardrobe is shifting yet again to meet our daily needs. From the office chic to daytime brunches, here are a few ways to live in your white button-down shirt.

Look 1: The Office

Most Americans spend more time at the office than we do with our families. Being in love with our 9-5 outfits creates a more enjoyable and confident work experience for many of us. A great option for a professional look is pairing a lightweight summer wrap skirt along with a white button-down, elevating both pieces by keeping it work appropriate yet chic at the same time.

Look 2: Dress it Up

To me, the perfect weekend outfit is a button-down dress that can be worn casually or chic depending on the day's plans. This is easily one of my favorite lazy looks and it pairs effortlessly with a sneaker, sandal or wrap around heel. As such, the button-down shirt dress is a staple that will soon become a closet favorite. If you're in the mood for daytime chic, add a belt to create more shape to your button-down. Pair with a bright wrap around sandal along with a cute bag, and you'll realize finding your outfit for the day was easier than finding your car keys!

Look 3: No Beach, No Problem

As creatures of habit, being inside these past few months has made more than a few of us more comfortable with the idea of enjoying our own homes. If you had to cancel that all-inclusive tropical beach vacation this summer, set up a cute spot outdoors with your newly purchased swimsuit paired with a white button-down as an oversized alternative to a cover up. Super chic yet conservative, enjoy a tan session in the backyard complete with a favorite read and lots of sunlight.

​Tour Interior Designer Annisa LiMara's Organic Modern Meets Midcentury Modern ATL Abode

In xoNecole's series Dope Abodes, we tour the living spaces of millennial women, where they dwell, how they live, and the things they choose to adorn and share their spaces with.

Annisa LiMara has called this space her home for two years. Her Atlanta sanctuary, which she aimed to give the look and feel of something you'd see in the glossy pages of Architectural Digest, embodies her vision of "stunning, yet functional and cozy."

"My home is a reflection of my brand, The Creative Peach Studios, and I am the 'Creative Peach,'" Annisa explains. "It was so easy to reflect who I am and my personal story in my space. When you walk into my home, you know that it is Annisa’s home. I’m so proud of that. So grateful."

'Act II': Beyoncé's Country Era Is Paying Homage To Black Artists & Daring Us To Exist In Any Space We Choose

Super Bowl Sunday Queen Bey struck again, snatching all our edges and keeping us in the same chokehold we’ve been in for the past couple of decades. After her Verizon commercial, where she alluded to her power to break the internet, Beyoncé essentially broke the internet with her announcement that Renaissance Act II would be released on March 29, 2024. The final drop in this marketing masterpiece was the release of two new singles, “16 CARRIAGES” and “TEXAS HOLD ‘EM,” which have both soared to number one and two in the iTunes country music category.
