1) Maje Button-Down Shirt w/ Built-In Tank

I love my white Rails button-down, but it’s really nice to mix it up sometimes too! How cool is this button-down shirt by Maje?! Definitely not your average button-down shirt! It has a built-in tank that makes that effortless layered look super…well, effortless! I love the slouchy, relaxed fit and asymmetrical buttons. It’s also cotton poplin so you won’t get hot! I styled it with a pair of baggy split hem jeans by EB Denim, my reversible Valentino belt, and some new See by Chloe platform heels that are super on-trend right now! I’ll also be wearing this button-down with denim shorts and sandals this summer.

2) Zadig & Voltaire Pink Striped Button Down

The pink striped Zadig & Voltaire button down shirt I’m wearing above has quickly become a go-to for me this summer. I even took it on our trip to the Middle East. The pale pink is really pretty, the split cuffs are a cool detail, and there’s a fun amour graphic on the back. It’s 100% cotton so it’s super lightweight and breathable for summer! I like to tuck it in to the front of my jeans or shorts, but you could leave it out or tie it up in a knot too. I’m wearing it with a pair of white wide leg jeans by Maje and really love the pink and white color combo for summer. But I’ll also wear this shirt with regular blue jeans and denim shorts.
