The button-down has been around forever, but one thing we love about the fashion world is that there's always a new way to wear the staples, whether it be through inspiration or innovation. In the case of today's post on the short-sleeve version for summer, it's a little bit of both. Not only are we taking cues from some stylish ladies on how to wear the piece, but we're also recommending you test-drive our own Who What Wear collection version of the basic before turning to one you might already own. Not to brag, but with two classic prints, a lightweight material, and a gathered waist that takes the annoyance out of tucking in your shirt, we're betting it will quickly become your new go-to.
Keep scrolling to see how two of our favorite bloggers style the essential, one of which happens to be our very own Who What Wear Gathered Hem Top in Black Gingham ($22), and then continue to shop the updated staple for yourself.
Julie Sariñana goes for a laid-back, tonal look (while beating the heat, nonetheless!) by pairing her blue-and-white striped top with blue jeans and simple sneakers. The result? Well, you can see for yourself.
Meanwhile, Stephanie Arant went the opposite, yet just as effective, route by pairing her black-and-white top with high-contrast mustard-yellow trousers and an of-the-moment straw bag.
