Nothing beats a good crisp button down shirt. It's a classic that never goes out of style, you can wear it so many ways, plus it's unisex. What gets better than that? A good button down is one of the most important closet staples one can own. One of my favorite ways to wear the button down is with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans. These vintage Levis were a $15 flea market find. I took a pair of scissors and cut the hem to give it a more modern feel, and I love it that much more! I definitely think it is worth hitting up flea markets and thrift shops to snag a few pairs of Levis to cut up. You get the same look as the denim in stores now for a fraction of the cost!
