White Button Down

Next to the twenty-some plain white tees in my closet is a rack stacked with an abnormal amount of collared, white button down shirts. This classic staple is the perfect answer to the I-hate-everything-in-my-closet-I-don’t-know-what-to-wear-today dilema. Here are 5 of my current favorites: Bella Dahl for it’s thicker texture and split back, Thomas Mason for J.Crew for it’s tailored fit and tuxedo shirt detail, Enzo Costa for it’s gauzy texture and exaggerated hi-low hem, Equipment for that crisper look and semi-relaxed fit, and Current/Elliott for it’s oversized, menswear-inspired fit and lightweight material. Do you own any white button downs that you swear by?

  9. Have to say, as stodgy as it sounds, the Brooks Brothers no-iron button-down white shirt is BRILLIANT. Well-tailored and fitted, it works every time. And the wash-and-wear bonus makes it great for travel, too. Trust me on this!

  10. And P.S. Well-priced at $98.50. I just went on website and there is a special at 2 for $159. Also many great white shirt choices. I have no attachment to Brooks Brothers, btw.

  19. Ah yes the classic white shirt. It just goes so well with everything! Sadly, I’m a bit of a klutz so give me a few hours and you’d be able to tell what I had for lunch just by looking at my white shirt. lol

  22. A good essay on clash of clans hack tool no survey. Even a child could work out that
    the nationwide debt has always depended upon clash of clans hack tool no survey to a certain extent,
    but now more that ever. When you are enjoying a shooter, make every one of your photos basically add up.

  23. für all das können Sie unsere Grundkinderwagen danken .
    Der Rucksack Windeltasche ist von Ihnen viel Zeit im Freien verbringen und über
    Nacht Reisen . Mit all den anderen Notwendigkeiten müssen Sie mit auf Ihre Ausflüge zu
    bringen, das letzte, was Sie wollen, zu tun; ist mit einem schweren, unüberschaubar Doppel-Kinderwagen zu kämpfen .

  24. The water parks have the swimming pools, water slides
    and the number of motor boats. Best of all by
    paying 500THB you will get a decent room though it won’t be the best shape or condition. These hotels generally have eating facilities 24×7, room services, cyber cafes, and in-house restaurants.
