How to Style a White Button Down & Denim Shorts

Fall is quickly approaching and I'm hoping for a subtle transition into cooler temps to avoid any shocks to the system and a slow change in seasons also makes it easier to transition your clothes. Instead of going from sandals to sweaters in one day, you can sub in warmer pieces here and there to maximize your wardrobe. For example, one of my favorite late-Summer combos is a white button-down shirt & denim cut-offs. This pairing provides a bridge from classic to trendy which is exactly where I like to live when it comes to personal style.

The white button-down is easily the most universal item of clothing. Due to its versatility, it can literally be worn (and worn well) with anything. plus there are so many ways to keep it fresh. It has all the benefits of a blank slate: Tuck it in for polish or leave it out for a relaxed fit, style with heels for elegance or sneakers for effortless and my very favorite, pair with your go-to denim, for a look that will never leave you questioning whether you're dressed just right.

If you need any more reasons why this fashion essential belongs in your closet, here's another: It's lakeside perfection. Easy, breezy, beautiful, button-down ;)

Did I mention this button down is made from a silky-suede material? Holy soft. I have already worn this J.Jill top multiple times (see another outfit idea here) and it's like putting on the perfect fitting gloves every time. 

Like the shirt? I've linked to it (and my other pieces or similar options!) here:
