10 Classic Button-Down Shirts You Should Invest In

If there’s one kind of top you should splurge on, it should be button-downs. They are a treasure to have because you can wear them any season and in different occasions. They also make a wonderful styling piece. Wear the button-down top alone, pair it up with a sleeveless tent dress or hide it under your dungarees. The possibilities are always endless.

I also love how button-down tops can go from a classy piece you can wear to work and transform to versatile clothing that you can pair up with your other go-to pieces for play.

We are particularly smitten with these button down designer selections:
