There has been discussions about button downs on here previously-things like the fit-gaping between the buttons, etc. I have a white cotton shirt worn previously under crew neck sweaters, a red plaid one worn over a tee, unbuttoned, and an oversized beige silk that is a "why did I ever get this" item. I have just tried them on today -tucked into high rise pants (not the oversize). I never wore this look before-I always thought I looked dumb-like my waist was too high under my armpits. Now that I have lost weight I think I can do this. It was not my short waisted body, it was just the overweight middle. How do you wear your buttondowns, and what about the high rise bottoms????
