White Button Down

the summer white button down

Keep it simple, keep it classic and you can’t go wrong. This is one of those simple wardrobe items that works for anyone, women or men. There is the men’s white oxford from Uniqlo for a whopping $29. It’s a bit boxy even in the slim version, so if that is not your thing, have it tailored. Or for women, the drapey oversized white cotton button down for $72. Pair it with jeans, white or blue. When readers ask about style, we always say go with classics, keep the colors simple, think Jackie O and Steve McQueen. Leave the fuzzy fuscia jumpsuits to the kids.
