While a button-down shirt is often worn to defenses and interviews, don't underestimate the versatility of this classic piece. Because when styled right, you can get the coolest, casual OOTD with so much ease. Just like its older sis, the denim jeans, denim shorts are rugged and edgy in all the right ways. Put the contrasting crisp button-down shirt with the cool denim shorts and create a chic look for the day in a snap!

Go full seventies mode and wear your button-down shirt with a pair of high-waist denim shorts. Leave a few buttons unopened, and pile on the rad accessories like a bold floppy hat, a thick brown belt, and lace-up sandals for a striking outfit for the day.

For an easy, but still fashionable look, tuck a loose button-down shirt under a pair of classic denim cut-offs. Add a retro backpack and sunnies into the style equation and you’re good to go!

 

Keep your OOTD classic by wearing an oversized button-down shirt with a pair of fuss free denim shorts. Plus points if you can score your dad's, your brother's, or your boyfriend's go-to button-down to add a quick masculine touch to the look.

Up the ante of this basic style equation by adding interesting elements to the look. Embrace the quiet contrast of the button-down shirt and the denim shorts with accessories that are contrasting in style, too like a sleek jacket and a trendy printed hat.

Instead of using the button-down shirt as one of the key piece in the style equation, why don't you use it as a third-piece instead? Wear a no-fail tee and denim cut-offs combo and add a long button-down into the mix. End the look with a fashionable handbag and an equally fashionable pair of heels.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
