8 White Button Downs That Give Chic Tomboy Vibes

1 week ago 18

It doesn’t get more classic than a white button-down shirt. An ideal option for sunny July days, formal job interviews, “creative” job interviews, a girls night out, your Capri getaway, your 3 a.m. visit to the bodega, and even a makeshift Halloween costume — it’s actually hard to think of a place where you can’t wear a white button-down. And not to belabor the point, but if I had to choose one item to wear the rest of my life, it would be my dad’s hand-me-down Oxford white button down from the early 80’s — simple and classic, with the perfectly worn-in fabric that only vintage pieces can capture.

And the beauty of a white button-down is that it’s anything but boring when styled with a little creativity.

Ready to get some mileage out of this wardrobe hero? We’ve rounded up our favorite eight fashionable white button downs that appeal to a variety of occasions, moods, and styles. From WFH life to picnic dates in the park and everywhere in between, getting dressed has never been so chic – and so simple.
