The blank canvas of a no-frills (save for the gently ruffled collar, in this case) light-blue button-down provides limitless wardrobe versatility: Subtle enough to take a back seat to statement pieces, yet capable of bringing a touch of color when needed, the shirt’s chameleon properties are its greatest assets. Here, three styling strategies to get you started.
