Button-downs are such a wardrobe staple, whether it’s a work look or go-to for a casual social event. July can be a hot month to endure being buttoned up in one, though, so here are some breezy styles that make long sleeves more manageable during those hot summer months.
Off the shoulder tops—show off those bronzed summer shoulders and feel that breeze on your skin.
Thin and sheer—stay cool in breathable and quick-drying fabric.
The stars and stripes top (above) is from GANT and is so soft, thin and airy—just pop a cami underneath, and you’re good to go. The white off-the-shoulder-top was found on Scattoclothing.com, and looks great paired untucked with leggings, too.
Looking for a summer day trip or mini getaway? These photos were taken at beautiful Longwood Gardens, an absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous historic Du Pont estate in PA, only about 2 hours outside of D.C. Be sure to catch one of the fountain shows set to music (during the day and also at night, with lights).
