A Fashion Staple: Button Down Shirts

A fashion staple is one of those things that never really goes out of style. It’s an item that you could potentially wear for years as long as the quality of the item is good.

Also for me a fashion staple is something that can be worn in various ways. Meaning it does what a staple does and holds my wardrobe together… I just made that up, but it sounds kinda true. My personal fashion staple is a button down shirt (chambray included)… this look is no longer just for men.

See examples of all the different ways I’ve styled this “staple” in the last month.

Roll up your sleeves to make the look more youthful and less dressy.


Wear a more conservative shirt (like a button down) with short shorts to make the look more age appropriate.

What is your fashion staple?
