If there’s one item I’ve been reaching for on repeat this season, it’s an oversize button-down shirt. Cool, effortless, and polished, the reliable wardrobe staple is a classic yet manages to remain fashion-forward. I’ve spotted the low-key basic in fresh and modern iterations all over the fashion crowd on Instagram—most popularly seen in breezy silhouettes and a whole host of trending colors.
Another reason I’m enamored with the versatile basic (aside from the fact it leans into my coastal-grandma aesthetic perfectly) is that it’s super easy to wear. Aside from the gym, I can’t think of a single circumstance where wearing one would be inappropriate. Easy to dress up or down, it exudes an effortless elegance whether you style it with linen shorts or a silk slip dress. Moreover, it’s super accessible. It’s easy to find practically everywhere and at every price point.
If you’re looking for a little inspiration on how to style one this season, I’m sharing a whole host of cool and fresh button-down outfit ideas below that are anything but boring.
