Dress Up Your Plain Button Down Shirt

Worn out wardrobe? Glamour has the answer with several creative ways to turn what’s already in your wardrobe into something new and refreshing.

Favorite white button down shirt not cutting it anymore? To dress up a button down, of any color, Glamour suggests pairing it with capris, a jacket and heels. For a new fall look, try a mustard yellow shirt with a bright colored pair of pants or a rustic colored jacket; leather would be suitable but not necessary. To bring the number together, add metal accessories like these.

For a more relaxed look, Glamour suggests wearing the button down untucked and pairing it with a jacket, or vest for fall, and a satchel bag. To add some fun, wear bright colors or select a jacket with a polka dot pattern for a fun new fall look. For the bold fashionista, Glamour suggests wearing an oversized button down, which can be dressed up or down with a belt and heels or just a jacket. For the more conservative dresser, or when the temperatures drop in fall, add a fun pair of leggings or, for a school girl look, add knee high socks.

For those seeking a more prime and proper look, button up the button down. Add a cute belt and a touch of lace for fall, and a jacket. For a classic look Glamour suggests pairing the buttoned up shirt with a pair of black pants. Another fun add on could be a bow at the collar.
