How To Give A Plain Button-Up A Sexy Twist (Literally)

See more about this Episode
There are certain things you don't mess with. An expertly brewed cappuccino. NARS Orgasm blush. Tilda Swinton. And, up until recently, we had the crisp button-up shirt on that list. With the ability to be worn with just about every other piece in your closet, it's professional and easy-breezy, sharp and slouchy, and pretty and tomboyish all at once. But, of course, wearing it every single week for a long, long time gets a girl thinking of exploring other options. But, don't ditch the  button-up if you're growing tired of it — just give it a twist.

Using just a single button, you can wrap a button-down around your torso to give your plain shirt a completely different vibe. This works best on oversized, too-big button-downs (the ones you find at thrift stores in the men's section for a dime a dozen), but you can make it work with slimmer-fit ones with a longer torso. Take a look at the technique in the video above.
