Striped button-downs are so much more versatile than people give them credit for. They’re the perfect shirt for work or play, depending on how you style them, and we’re going to show you how to do it both ways. We're going to start with the ultimate chic workday look
This Striped Twist Front Button-Down Shirt will make you the talk of the watercooler. This top is amazing because on top it looks just like your regular button-down. But the bottom has gives it this little flare with an awesome twist detail that takes the shirt that honestly takes it from drab to fab (plus it'll make your waist look amazing). It looks great by itself or layered under your favorite blazer.
What's so great is that you can wear this outfit any time of the year; the shirt is light enough to be worn alone in warmer months, or under all your layers when it’s cooler. For pants, we love an update on the classic black slacks with this slim leg pair of trousers that has side zip details on the leg. They're simple so that they don't take away from the top and super comfortable for a long day at the office.
A pop of color brightens up anything, especially an office. You can wear any color you like, but we love how the red looks with the white and blue stripes. For the shoes, we opted for some suede loafers instead of heels because sometimes you really just need to give your feet a break (plus they’re a great pairing with this outfit). Top it off with your favorite work bag and everything you need to be the model employee, and you’ve got an outfit that’ll easily make you the talk of the water cooler.
