Few pieces can transcend seasons and social obligations like a white button-down shirt (opens in new tab)—especially fresh new riffs on the old standby. For a classic-but-stylish look, keep an eye out for dress shirts with asymmetrical hems, embellishments, and varying sleeve lengths that are a world away from clinical, bare-bones styles. Whether you gravitate towards a soft, feminine look, or feel partial to tomboy tailoring, these white button-downs hold something for everyone.
