Uncuffed and dangerous.

The blank slate in your closet? A white button down shirt. Dress it up, dress it down, add some cufflinks, or un-cuff the whole damn thing, wear it under, wear it over, or completely alone (think Tom Cruise in Risky Business). Your options are endless, which brings me back to my reoccurring theme on the blog – “closet staples”.

Most people think “work-attire” when they think of button downs, but depending on how you style it, this shirt can take you from work, straight to the beach. Don’t just stop at owning one, having options is always best, from well-tailored, to over-sized (men’s shirts are preferred), to luxurious fabrics – such as silk, for more festive outings.

Here, I’ve undone my cuffs for a more casual effect, after all, I live in LA, I’ve got to blend in with this super-casual crowd, ya know?
