4 Ways to Wear a Blue Button Down Shirt

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.

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.
