Button Down For What?

After reading an article on the Man Repeller blog, I got inspired to do a post about styling button downs. I thought that since I have a bunch of button downs laying around my closet, I really don’t have much idea on how to style it more other than just layering it with a jacket. So I picked up on those pieces that they featured on the site.

This is so simple and effortless looking. The fabrics worked so well together. I may not know what fabrics these are but I want to have one for myself. I just really love this. It feels so soft and comfortable just by looking at this photo. Looks effortlessly chic.

This is all about layering, a play on textures and prints. Being playful and taking some risks pays off sometimes so give it a go and it might work.

I am into tailored looks. I haven’t thought of layering anything longer than this tailored shirt. Quite simply, it worked for this look!

With this last look, I remember trying this when I started blogging in 2012. I button up the first few holes and let the rest lay as it is. I was surprised that throwing on different outerwears into this look didn’t look frumpy and bulky. She used different lengths and cuts here. So that’s the hint, play on different lengths to be able to get this look.

Now, we got more tips and tricks on how to get around button downs or button ups. Say bye bye to the regular look!
