A Forever-Classic Piece
That Works Whenever

The white button-down: So crisp, so handy, so versatile—a closet is incomplete without one. (Fashion icons have been throwing them on for decades. So has your dad.) Below, some vintage style inspo from a recent Pinterest deep dive, plus the modern-day outfit-finishers to go with.

FOR SUMMER

Strolling from beach to town to farmers’ market calls for something really, truly versatile: Billowy shirting is the linchpin that ties all your warm-weather workhorses—bright swimsuit, faded denim, woven basket—together.

FOR THE MIDSEASON

When it’s too nippy to go layerless but too mild for outerwear, a lightweight long-sleeve (worn open, sleeves pushed up) is the perfect pairing for that slip dress you can’t stop wearing. Finish the look with sneakers, sexily smudged lips, and something shiny on your finger.

FOR FALL

Crisp shirt + polished denim + his-for-her jacket = a fashion formula that never fails. Is it particularly groundbreaking? Maybe not. Does it come off as effortlessly chic, especially when grounded with leather accessories and an edgy-meets-elegant ear cuff? Absolutely.
