How to Style the White Shirt

1 of 7

Trends come and go, but the versatility of the classic white button-down is perpetual. It has the benefits of a blank slate and can be dressed down or dressed up; it can be knotted or tucked into our favorite pair of jeans; styled with a pair of relaxed sneakers; paired with a voluminous skirt.

Check out some tips to style your white shirt this summer!


Tuck a white button-down into a pair of well-loved straight-leg jeans for tailored appeal. Top your white button-down and denim combo with a sleeveless coat for transitional weather.


To dress up your denim look, add a classic white shirt and heels. Finish it off with a bandana or statement necklace.


With Jeans
There is little that doesn’t go well with a pair of jeans, and unsurprisingly, the white button-down is no exception. Both items are two of our closet’s big guns, and together, they look so fresh and so clean.

With a Skirt
Whether its length is full, midi, at the knee, or mini, we’re a fan of how a skirt adds interesting volume to the lines of our straight up-and-down shirt.

With a Pair of Sneakers
For a sporty look, throw on the crisp button-down and reach for a pair of comfy sneaks and/or a jaunty baseball cap—looking chic has never been so effortless!

With Warm Layers
‘Tis the season for layers appearing, and the oxford shirt featuring an angled collar and not-too-thick material is ideal to fit under a trench coat or blazer, or even a pair of quirky overalls.


With Offbeat Details
Leather details via a motorcycle jacket, an oversized leopard clutch, or wrap-around studded platforms make the classic white button-down shine in a new fashion forward light.
