A crisp button-down is certainly a wardrobe staple, but let’s face it: It wouldn’t hurt to make it a bit more dynamic and interesting!

You’ve probably tucked it into a pencil skirt and styled it in a front knot with denim, but we’re excited to share new ways to button, tie and style your simple-seeming shirt to turn it into something unique, trendy and oozing with street cred.

First up, cold shoulder tops are a huge trend this season, but you don't need to shop for brand new styles to get the look (unless you want to). Reach for a baggier button-down and follow the steps below — it couldn't be simpler!
