I think it’s in the code to becoming a man that you have to own a white button up. Since we're pretty sure you already have one in your closet we are going to show you how you can style it in more ways than with a pair of dress pants and a matching suit jacket. (which is oh so boring but sometimes necessary, we understand.)
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 and stylish look. Also don’t be afraid to roll up your sleeves for a SUPER suave look.
2. With a Sweater
No, wearing a sweater over a white button up isn’t just for your father or 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 badass. 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 but not trying too hard look. A super easy outfit 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, put together but not trying too hard.
Now that you know better enjoy utilizing your white button up to it's full potential. Relish the overflow of compliments you receive on your outstanding style and try to create your own outfit variations from your smaller wardrobe.
