Wearing an oversized button down shirt is one of the coolest and most comfortable articles of clothing you can wear. There’s something cool about making it seem like you just found your man’s shirt somewhere at his place and made it your own to give you that effortless look. It’s also pretty easy to style so if you haven’t tried wearing one out, you might want to now.

Here are a few easy ways you can wear an oversized button down shirt.

You can make it more feminine by wearing skinny jeans that end right above the ankle and bright lip. The colors of the shirt and jeans are up to you but a crisp white shirt with dark denim is an option that never goes wrong.
Button down + shorts + sandals. Because the weather is warm outside, you probably want your skin to breathe a little bit and we get it. If skinny jeans are too much material for you, wear the shirt with your favorite shorts. To keep the effortless vibe going, unbutton the shirt up to the waist of the shorts, take one side of the shirt, and tuck that side in. The back and opposite side of the shirt should be free. Gladiator and strappy sandals are a big trend this season so this is a great outfit to wear them with.
Button down + leather skirt + heels. Just because the button down is oversized doesn’t mean you can wear it to a date or going out with the girls at night. Try a solid colored shirt like blue or white with a leather skirt in oxblood or black or even print for a great evening look. Paired with some ankle strap heels and a bold lip and you’re good to go.
