Gentlemen, it probably goes without saying that you have a white button-up in your closets. And if you don't, you should! It's a key component in manhood. Kidding. But seriously. And since it is so essential, here are 10 new ways to style it, other than your ordinary dress pants & matching suit jacket combo.
1. With a Blazer
A simple way to wear your white button up is with a blazer. The object here is to not wear corresponding pants. Try wearing jeans or cords for a more casual/stylish look. Also, do not be afraid to roll up your sleeves for effortlessness.
2. With a Sweater
No, wearing a sweater over a white button up isn’t just for your grandfather or cape cod dwellers. This is an easy way to look polished and put together.
3. With a Sweatshirt
This one is for the guy who isn’t afraid to experiment with his style. A crew neck sweatshirt over a white button up gives a relaxed, cool and fashion forward vibe.
4. With a Jean Jacket
You might think that the formality of a white button up would clash with the relaxed style of a jean jacket. However, combined they result in a style savvy, layered look.
5. With a Varsity Jacket
This is another look for the guy who isn’t afraid to take fashion risks; this one will definitely pay off. From a casual date night to hanging out on the weekends this is a look that exudes stylish ease.
6. With Corduroys
Sometimes you want to keep it simple but also need to look nice. Wearing a white button up and corduroys is a great way to look put together while not having to think a lot about coordinating a ton of colors and textures.
7. With a Leather Jacket
A leather moto jacket can make almost anything look bad-a*s. Combined with a white button-up you will look equal parts hot greaser and Sinatra-suave.
8. With Distressed Jeans
The juxtaposition between a crisp white button up and distressed jeans will give you an edgy yet easy, look. A super simple combo to throw on before you go out on the weekend.
9. With a Bomber Jacket
A bomber jacket is really cool piece to have in your wardrobe. Paired with a white button up you’re ready for a date, the game or just going out with friends on the weekend.
10. With a Cardigan
A cardigan over a white button up is a classic outfit to wear for anything; from casual Fridays at work to meeting the parents for the first time. You’ll look clean and put together without trying too hard.
