Outfit Ideas

Here are three different ways to wear this classic black button-down shirt, depending on your mood and the occasion.

1. Boho Casual

Shirt, Shorts, Sandals, Hat, Belt, Sunglasses

I personally think this is my favorite look, because it has a little bit of that boho-chic aesthetic that I often try to incorporate into my own wardrobe.

To create this look, I started with the black button-down, and I then paired it with some destroyed, high-waisted denim shorts. After that, I added a skinny leopard print belt for some interest, and a pair of black braided leather sandals. I finished the outfit with a pair of light brown Wayfarer-style sunglasses and an adorable floppy black hat.

For those of you who are still experiencing colder weather, you can still wear this look! Just drop the hat, add a pair of black tights and switch out the sandals for a pair of flat boots! Add a jacket if it's still too chilly to go without.

2. Dressing it Up

This look, while still casual, definitely has a dressier feel than the other two, simply because of the addition of a skirt and heels.

This time around, I paired the shirt with a pretty, flouncy floral skirt and a pair of studded t-strap clogs. To play off of the pretty blue hues in the skirt, I added a gorgeous turquoise statement necklace and a large round turquoise ring.

Colder weather people, again, don't worry - you can wear this, too! Just add black tights and a cute jacket for warmth. (A black leather motorcycle jacket would look amazing here!)

3. Eclectically Chic

This last look is not only warmer (perfect for you non-Floridians), but for some reason it also gives me that whole street style-chic, "I-just-threw-this-on-but-still-look-flawless" vibe.

This time, the shirt is paired with some dark, super skinny jeggings and these adorable desert-style wedge boots, which are RIGHT on trend for Spring. I added a gorgeous silk scarf with a vibrant color palette to brighten up the look a bit. To finish off the ensemble, I added multiple large rings, which bring some interest to this already eclectic look, and a pair of sleek brown aviators.
