Fashion tip :Button down

A button down shirt is trendyTrending in men’s fashion

There are many ways to wear a shirt. You can have it buttoned up, then complete your look with a tie, or have it buttoned up to the chest. However, the  coolest new look is having the shirt fully buttoned up, and then finished off, not with a tie, but with some jewellery, or even better just leave it plain. It is very trendy, polished and elaborate look. Keep in mind though, that it’s not just any shirt that can be used to pull off this look. The shirt that is worn with this look usually has a Peter Pan collar. This collar appears to be rounder, after you have buttoned up.
There are many ways to pull off this look. You can choose to wear it on chinos, or shorts, depending on what you feel comfortable with. The trick here is ensuring that your pants are well fitting. The slimmer they appear, the better your look will come off.

The other way to finish off this look is by incorporating some jewellery, like chains and statement neck pieces. Now I know many guys cringe at the thought of having to wear jewellery. However, jewellery will help add some sparkle to the look, as it is supposed to act as your tie.

Don’t stick to only plain colours and long sleeved shirts. You can wear a short sleeved printed shirt, and then have it fully buttoned up and complete the look with a gold chain. The chain is your accessory, so let it complement your buttoned up shirt nicely, not bring it down. So that means it’s not just any chain. It has to be one that stands out.
You can choose to have the shirt tucked in, or let it hang.
