    Let me start by saying, you need a white button-down. If you don't already own one in your closet you need to get on that stat.

    Let us start with the button-down, shall we? This classic Oxford shirt is available in numerous colors and patterns to keep it ~spicy~ if you want to try out the button-down look for yourself.

    Some chose to layer the shirt under other wardrobe pieces like a dress or vest. I personally am in love with the dress idea, because I honestly would have never thought to do that...iconic.

    We saw many folks take scissors to the oversized shirt and snip off a good bulk of the bottom.

    And others made some bold choices to alter the button-down that truly paid off.

    But at the end of the day, you can never go wrong with just styling it as a typical top with a cool jacket and pants! So chic.

    BRB while I go alter all of my button-downs right now...
