5 Ways To Turn A Men's Button-Down Shirt Into A Stylish Women's Look
It's a staple of any man's closet- the classic button down shirt with long sleeves. Whether it's solid colored, striped, checkered, or another fashionable pattern, the button down shirt is great for any occasion.
Women can also take advantage of this versatile shirt by styling it in a way that adds some feminine flair to a typically masculine item of clothing. Try these five inventive ideas the next time you steal a button down shirt from your man's closet.
1. All Business
For a look that's great for the office, pair a men's button down shirt with a sleek pencil skirt and high heels. Simply button the shirt up most of the way, leaving a few buttons loose at the top, then tuck the shirt into the pencil skirt for an outfit that says you mean business and are ready to take over the world.
2. Belly Baring
Crop tops are all the rage right now, so showing off that belly in a men's button down is a unique twist on this popular style. Button the top half of the shirt, leaving a few buttons loose at the top. Take the two bottom sections of the shirt and tie them, leaving the belly exposed just above the navel. Pair it with some flirty daisy duke shorts or ripped jeans and you're ready for a fun night on the town.
3. 90s Grunge
Bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam took over the grunge music scene back in the 90s with their couldn't-care-less attitude and style. Mimic that look by topping a vintage tee and baggy jeans with a relaxed-fit button down top. Finish off the ensemble with sneakers for an all-out grunge fest.
4. Skinny Mini
Show off that waist by cinching in the center of a button down with a fashionable belt. Combine it with a figure-hugging pair of skinny jeans and knee-high boots for a look that is perfect for those fun weekend plans.
5. Legs For Days
What better way to showcase toned legs than by wearing a men's button down shirt as a stand-alone? If this feels a little too risque for you, wear a pair of leggings or boy shorts underneath for added coverage. Cinch the waist with a stylish belt and rock a pair of strappy heels for a look that is anything but masculine.
