    One basic shirt, five stylish looks

    THE plain white tee is the ultimate building block for an outfit, but we all know it's a giant pain to find the perfect white tee.

    Enter its dressier sibling: the white button-down.

    It's a forgiving fit whether you're still rocking the dad bod, skinny AF, or just an average guy. It's the easiest way to dress up any outfit, but as you'll see here, it's no problem to dress down too.

    Button it all the way up

    Embody that good-boy-who'll-bring-your-daughter-home-early vibe you always wish you had by keeping your look neat and streamlined. The white button-down shirt is a classic for a reason. The reason being, you don't need to do much to yield maximum style results.

    Give it a rock and roll edge

    Even if you suck at playing guitar, pairing your white button-down with dark denims and a sleek denim jacket will earn you that rockstar air you've always wanted to emulate. Rule of thumb: make sure the washes of your jeans and jacket aren't the same so you don't end up looking like an OFW on holiday.
