They are timeless classics, usually called “crisp”, although some of us prefer a soft fabric, and some of us don’t own an iron, heh. My favorite button down look is a broken-in chambray shirt with either dark jeans or a feminine skirt on the bottom. I love it when the fabric gets a little worn. My current love is a thrifted pale chambray by Old Navy, about three years old.
And as per always, you can find button down ideas and inspiration from the women at Visible Monday. Over-40 and fabulous, these women stretch and break all the style “rules”, and look incredible doing it. They can work a button down like a boss, and they add new ingredients to a familiar recipe.
Stretch your button-down all the way to a maxi dress. Suzanne of Crazy Blonde Life looks fresh and classic-with-a-twist in a pale blue shirtdress with a wide self-belt. The wedge sandals and cool sunglasses make the look summery, and sophisticated. Love her garden; it makes me miss the one we had at the cottage.
Buttoned down in the city. Elle of The Elle Diaries chose a polished city look with a checked shirtdress, spectator slingbacks and a structured hat. I like the way she buttoned the top button to keep the neckline neat.
Free and easy and boho-glam. Sheela of Sheela Writes is wearing my personal favorite type of button down: loose and soft, sleeves rolled, and tucked into denim. The boots are crazy-good, ditto the shades.
Reminder: Visible Monday starts Sunday around 5PM. You are invited to share your favorite outfit, accessory, hairstyle or lipstick of the week – anything that made you feel Visible. Be there for the best blogger party and the finest style on the webz!
