I always have a hard time dressing for summer because I always feel so basic. It is so freaking hot and humid out here in the south and I can't wear to many layers. I need some type of depth or an extra factor to an outfit, and button downs solve that problem for me. I definitely will be investing in more sheer, light-weight button downs for the summer. You can layer them over a shirt, tie them around your waist, and even wear them as a skirt.
