3 Tips for Styling Button-Down Shirts for Men, Jacksonville East, Florida

A button-down shirt for men is a classic silhouette that will never go out of style. The timeless piece is a standard that adds a level of polish and sophistication to any wardrobe. It’s also surprisingly versatile, and it can be worn in many ways. If you need inspiration for making the most of this popular piece, keep these ideas in mind.

How to Wear Your Button-Down Shirt

1. Suit Yourself Up

There’s something about a crisp piece of American-made clothing that truly exemplifies a polished corporate look. You’ll always make an excellent first impression when you sport a well-cut button-down shirt beneath a tailored suit jacket and tucked into a matching pair of pants. Opt for a contrasting shade that stands out behind the suit—a light blue and charcoal combination is classic, as is timeless white and black.

2. Keep It Casual

Avoid the crisp, tailored dress shirts that you might wear to the office. Opt for a more relaxed silhouette that falls to about mid-hip length. Wear your shirt with chinos and a pair of boots for an effortless look that is pulled together but not too dressy. This is also a great opportunity to experiment with printed shirts that you might not otherwise wear.

3. Go Casually Dressy

When you want to sport a look that balances the best of both worlds, you can trust a button-down top to help you achieve it. For this look, you’ll want to pair the shirt—either tucked or untucked—with your most flattering dark-rinse jeans and a smartly cut sports coat. You can swap the blazer for a smart camel overcoat or similar type of outerwear in the winter, but aim to create a bit of balance between the off-duty charm of denim and the more sophisticated approach of a button-down shirt. They work together masterfully.
