Is there anything more classic than a gingham button down shirt? This wardrobe staple is an absolute gem. A gingham shirt can wear it every season of the month with almost any kind of outfit. They can be layered or worn alone, accessorized with lots of bling or with classic pearls, tucked in or left hanging. Any way you want to wear it, the gingham shirt will always pull through. See how I styled this gingham shirt from Aeropostale below!

A gingham button down will never fail to impress. It’s versatility in color and wear has earned it an everlasting spot in the classic style category. I’ve seen the gingham button down paired with all manner of shorts, skirts, pants, and even dresses. With this outfit, I decided to keep it simple with skinny jeans. My almost briefcase style Kate Spade bag holds all of my summer essentials…and so much more. I jazzed up the outfit with shiny accessories and balanced out the bottom of the outfit with very simple nude flats.
I would like to point out that this particular shirt is technically a button UP shirt, not a button DOWN. What’s the difference? A button down shirt features a button on both sides of the collar to keep the fabric folded down against the rest of the shirt. Button up shirts, like this one, don’t have the collar buttons. Funny, huh?
