The white button-down: So crisp, so practical, so versatile – a closet is incomplete without one. (Fashion icons have been wearing them for decades. Your dad has too.) Below are some vintage-style inspo from a recent Pinterest deep dive, as well as the modern outfit finishers that go with them.

FOR THE SUMMER

When you stroll from the beach into town to the farmers market, something really, really versatile is in demand: Billowy shirts are the linchpin that holds all of your warm-weather workhorses – pale swimsuit, faded denim, woven basket – together.

FOR THE MID SEASON

If it’s too crisp to be layerless but too bland for the outerwear, a lightweight long sleeve shirt (worn open, sleeves rolled up) is the perfect combination for that slip dress that you can’t stop wearing. Complete the look with sneakers, sexy smeared lips, and something shiny on your finger.

IN THE AUTUMN

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