Last month I found the most perfect button down shirt. I already had a classic white one, so I sprung for the light blue version. Now, I am convinced everyone needs a blue button down shirt in their closet. It’s a nice change up from classic white, but still matches with just about everything. Here are 4 ways to wear a blue button down shirt.

How to Wear a Blue Button Down Shirt
Casual: With Slim Jeans
If you’re looking to wear a blue button down on a casual day, pair it with slim jeans.
This is a perfect transitional look. In the spring, try light wash jeans to keep the outfit bright. In the fall, opt for darker jeans that are more seasonally appropriate.
Colorful: Try Bright Trousers
If you’re a fan of color, a blue button down acts as a fun natural to wear with bold pants. I love this blue and green combo, but other trousers that would look great with a blue button down shirt include red, rust, and even cobalt blue.

For Work: Tapered Black Pants
If you work in a business casual work environment, keep your blue button down shirt untucked and balance the oversized silhouette with slim black pants.
I am very into menswear-inspired looks, so I completed my outfit with chunky loafers.
For the Weekend: Black Bike Shorts
For a weekend look, wear your shirt with bike shorts. Leave it buttoned up, or unbutton it and wear it as a light layer over a thank top, crop top, or sports bra.
Pair with comfy sandals for an effortless, on-the-go outfit.
