Button down shirts originated from the late 19th-century English polo players, which was later adapted by John Brooks (of Brooks Brothers). These shirts were called polo shirts and were mass produced for men. Button down shirts became famous professional attire around early 20th century and gradually morphed into women’s clothing piece.
Today button down shirts can be paired appropriately to be – casual, dressy or professional. White button down shirts particularly – in any material – look very chic and classy. Although button-downs in any color and material look elegant, white is a timeless classic.
Nothing is better than a pair of blue jeans to go with a crisp white button-down shirt.
Head-to-toe white assembly does look great and is very easy to put together; team up a button down shirt with full-length pleated skirt, knee-length pencil skirt, trousers or shorts. Accessorizing, however, can add character to the overall outfit. Pick out a bright scarf or gold jewelry piece.
