Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

A classic white button-down shirt is a wardrobe staple every woman should own. This versatile piece is appropriate for work and class, and can be dressed down for a casual weekend look, or utilized in a glamourous night out look. Added bonus: this piece is seasonless! Depending on how you style it, a crisp white button-down can look any way you want.

In this post, I’ll be showing you how to style a classic white button-down for class and a night out. This piece can be tricky to style, but done just right it can look perfectly fun and chic!

Keep this piece preppy and fresh for a cute look to wear to class. This classic white button-down looks perfectly springy with a pair of white jeans with a blue liberty print and an all-American jean jacket. Add a cute pop of color with a kelly green pair of Keds.

A green-and-white statement necklace adds a touch of embellishment and stands out against the white button-down. Pearl stud earrings are dainty and classic, while a sporty metallic tote keeps the ensemble casual. Finish the outfit off with light pink lips and nails for another girly touch!

This white button-down looks perfectly crisp and sophisticated for a night out when paired with a black imitation leather mini with subtle buckle details.

Strappy black high-heeled sandals with a white contrast heel keep things simple yet trendy, while a bright yellow embellished clutch adds a beautiful pop of color to the look. Keep things edgy and easy with black nails and a shiny hot pink pout.

    I actually really love both of these outfits. A white button down can be stuffy sometimes, but these are both really nice and fun!
