It goes without saying that the white button-down is a major wardrobe staple (proof: celebrity white-shirt moments through the decades). Recently though, the classic shirt has been reimagined in new, modern ways, with added embellishments, neat silhouettes, and playful flairs. Despite their new look, they do, however, still serve as a crisp topper to pair with almost anything. See below for our 10 favorites that go beyond the basic.
