Heat is coming soon and thick unbreathable fabrics, long sleeves and fitting clothes will make us oversweat for sure. To feel more comfortable on a hot day, wear a short sleeve button down, this is a universal thing for a man’s wardrobe. Many stylists say that a short sleeve shirt is a worse idea than a long sleeve one as you may cuff the sleeves and it will look more elegant but layers of fabric may create overheating, too, and I know that most men have a short sleeve button down and will wear it anyway. Let’s find out how to do that with style.

What Short Sleeve Button Down To Choose?

A short sleeve button down is a piece for mostly spring and summer outfits, that means it’s better to choose natural and breathable fabrics like cotton and linen. Oversized designs will let air flow and you won’t feel too hot, besides, oversized clothes are a bold trend. if you want something more elegant, choose a semi-fitting model at least. As for colors, neutrals like creamy or black are absolutely universal, so such a piece will be a win-win idea. Though, if you have a lot of basic clothes and want something bold, choose vertical stripes, florals and bold colors, this is especially great for vacation looks.

How To Style A Short Sleeve Button Down?

The most popular answer is to wear it with shorts and sneakers but you may vary this look a lot and go further! First of all, you may play with the colors of your outfit – both shorts and shirt. Second, you may vary the shoes according to the weather (especially if it’s a beach vacation): if it’s hot, you may swap to espadrilles, flipflops and birkenstocks. Third, you may add a layer under the shirt, it’s usually a contrasting tank top that may match the shoes or not.

A short sleeve button down can be worn with pants, joggers or jeans, too. Add white sneakers or comfortable trainers and a straw hat to make the look more relaxed. Add layers rocking a tank top underneath, get some accessories like stacked bracelets and watches or sunglasses, and voila, an interesting look is ready!
