It can be dressed up or down, or styled a million different ways. I prefer to wear mine either casually (like this) or dressy for a night out. Otherwise, the shirt could make a look a little too preppy. Which isn't always a bad thing. :) A longer style is also a great bathing suit cover up. Chic!
The nice thing about wearing it casually is that I personally think it looks better not ironed. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
Do you have a basic white button down? Do you ever wear it? I challenge you to wear it in a style or in a way that you never have before.
