 http://www.styleunited.com/TipsAndTrends/article/8-Ways-to-Transform-a-White-Button-Down-Shirt  You can never go wrong with a classic white, button-down-the-front shirt. Here are some great ways to style this must-have basic:

Step-by-Step:

1. The "women's bow-tie:"  Button the shirt to the top and add a statement necklace.

2. Long, layered chains: Add some long necklaces under the collar.

3. A floral pin: Add a touch of spring with a fabric flower pin.

4. "The vest:" Layer on a sweater shell.

5. The blazer: Wear a blazer in a deep color for contrast.

6. The camisole: Unbutton a few top buttons and let some lace peek out.

7. The crop top: Unbutton a few lower buttons and tie the tails.

8. Shirt as jacket: Unbutton the shirt the entire way with a great layer underneath. Belt if desired.

TIP: For these looks, look for a shirt in 100 percent cotton or a cotton blend. A thinner fabric, such as silk, will hang differently and be prone to snags from jewelry.
