How To Wear A Button Down Shirt

A button down shirt, when worn the right way can be sexy. A lot of women mostly wear shirts with buttons down the front as part of office attires and unlike men, they rarely wear this type of clothing anywhere else. However, these types of shirts can make the wearer downright attractive when worn correctly, paired with the right type of clothing and enhanced with the right accessories.

Shirts with buttons down the front can be worn in a variety of ways; tucked -in or -out, open or closed, paired with long or short skirts, with pants or shorts or leggings. The important thing is for the wearer to know how to pull a certain look off. It is not always a good idea to wear clothing the way celebrities or models do especially if your physique or build is not right for the style you want to follow or portray.

Talking about physical build, since people have different physique, it is important to consider some factor when wearing a button down shirt. For example, it is not a good idea for one with a chubbier physique to wear horizontally striped shirts. Likewise for people with not too curvy bodies, wearing shirts with vertical stripes will just emphasize what you are lacking. It is always better to wear plain shirts and simply enhance your look with the accessories. You should also know how to match your skin tone with the color of your shirt.

Here are some tips on how to wear shirts with buttons down the front:

– When wearing this type of shirt open, pair it up with a different and more brightly colored shirt underneath – just make sure this shirt is not V-necked as it does not look good with open-buttoned shirts most of the time.

– For longer shirts, wear them with a glam belt around your neck; the thicker the belt, the more it can emphasize your hips. You can also fold up the sleeves halfway up your arms and wear stacked silver or light hued bracelets.

– You can also wear longer shirts loose paired with tight dark colored leggings for a much simpler and more comfortable get-up.

– Chunky costume jewelry also goes well with a button down shirt, especially one with vertical stripes.

Shirts with buttons down the front should not be limited as office garb, experiment and make your own statement wearing these.
