A white button down is timeless classic and a staple for almost every man’s wardrobe. If you have one or several ones and are wondering how to wear them right to look up-to-date and cool, we’ve gathered some tips and ideas that will inspire you.

What White Button Down To Choose?

Oversized clothes is one of the main directions in fashion now, so if you want a basic piece, go for an oversized white button down with long sleeves that can be cuffed any time. If you prefer more fitting items, choose a semi-fitting one, too tight shirts are totally out of style and look outdated, and again long sleeves will be a better choice. Go for short sleeves in case you are living in a hot climate and hot weather is a common thing. As for fabrics, think natural ones like cotton and linen for summer, this way you won’t overheat and your skin will breathe. You may also make your looks more interesting choosing a white button down with some catchy detailing – a logo, black buttons, pockets or a print – in case you already have a basic white one and want something fresh.
