There’s nothing more collegiate than a crest and nothing more classic than a button-down. This Fashionista sported the best of both worlds in a black and white striped Ralph Lauren button-down.
Everyone, men and women of any age, should own a button-down. Having multiple styles and colors is ideal, but a striped button-down is a must. Also, neutral shades will last forever. Button-downs are appropriate for almost all occasions, making them worth the investment. Androgyny is a term that combines both masculine and feminine features. A button-down is an exemplary androgynous garment because Fashionistas can borrow from the boys and still look stylish.
For summer, consider a lightweight button-down in a cotton or silk fabric. Gap has a number of cotton oxford shirts in feel-good pastel shades. Play with prints and add a floral button-down to your ever-expanding closet. Remember, button-downs don’t have to cost a fortune. Some of the most comfortable shirts are the ones you find on sale.
As for the crest, rock it with confidence, like this Fashionista did. Crests may be harder to find than a button-down, but Ralph Lauren makes that easy for shoppers. Lauren by Ralph Lauren makes a crewneck logo tee every Fashionista can wear on a leisure day or pair with colored pants and a blazer for a night out.
