5 Creative Ways to Wear a Basic Button Down

Hi there Lawyer Lookbook readers! My name is Lee and I am the blogger behind LegalLee Blonde – a style blog for young professionals. Like Brittany, I am a lawyer by day... except I am up North in Vancouver, Canada.  I met Brittany via blogging about a year ago and fell in love with her bold, feminine style (and the fact that she is super sweet!)

Today I wanted to share with you some tips for being creative with a basic button down. It’s easy as a young professional to get in a style rut – especially when staring at a sea of button downs in your closet (anyone else?!) – so I find adding a creative spin is a great way to get more wear out of your basic pieces, and up your style game! Below are 5 creative ways to wear a button down:

1) With a Bow Tie

2) Worn Backwards

Similar Button Down // Pants (my favorite work pants!) // Similar Handbag // Heels // Earrings

3) Under a Dress

4) Under a Sweater

5) Knotted at the Front

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to follow along on Instagram and Snapchat @lawyerlookbook for photos from France!

  3. I like your first outfit! whole white look! Great styles!

  4. Nice outfits. The backwards is a great idea. Also hubby shirt is a nice idea too. You are so cute with a bow tie white shirt.
