Oversized Button-Down Timeless Look

1. Statement Jewelry

Make it pop with a bold statement ring, layered necklaces, dangle earrings, or all of the above. Turquoise and denim are timeless and look fantastic together. I am in love with Jamie Joseph rings and that turquoise one has my name on it.

Layering necklaces will dress anything up and add a bit of dazzle with a side of sexiness.

2. Sporty-Chic

This sporty-chic look is simple but can be tricky especially trying to find the right blazer. Make sure it is the same length as the button-down and rolled-up sleeves is a must.

Add a chunky sneaker to complete this look. My new favorite right now is Hoka One One, a traditional running shoe that also works for a sporty-chic look.

3. Unbuttoned

Trade your typical black “going out” top for a white oversized button-down. That’s right get your sexy on and unbutton the top few buttons, add some layering necklaces, and a statement ring. You’re welcome for the drink that will be purchased for you by a handsome, respectful gentleman because you ooze sophistication and sexiness.

Dangly earrings keep it sizzlin too.

You can also wear a simple, signature necklace if you want less bling. I love this minimalist style by a female, Black-owned business, The Pink Locket.

4. Wear the Oversized Button-Down As A Layering Piece

The oversized button-down makes a fantastic, versatile layering piece. I am an avid button-down denim shirt fan so this look is one of my favorites.
