The basic white button down, the one item I know most of you own and probably love just as much as I do.
The one item that is so basic it sometimes gets lost in our memories, lost between all the other colorful button downs hanging near by.
And yet, its the one item that will forever be known as the button down classic . . .
The one item everyone should own at least one (more like three or four) of.
There were many fashion, decorating, and style tips I learned from my grandmother but this one I always followed:
Always buy a new white button down every year . . .
1. Because the style of the cut and fit will change from year to year.
2. Because you want it White and Crisp.
3. Because it will be the most versatile, essential and classic item in your wardrobe.
This year I chose to add an oversized, long length, white button down to my collection (Eileen Fisher).
I love the easy going, casual feel it brings to my day . . .
Whether I’m going out for the evening and sporting heels . . .
or just running errands and playing for the day.
I’m looking forward to layering this item for fall by throwing on a boxey sweater over the top or a possibly a longer vest. Yes, I’ve spotted a few . . .
