Bold and billowy button-down shirts are cropping up all over the runways, streets and social apps this summer.

If you’re thinking of trying the statement shirt trend yourself but aren’t quite sure how to pull a full outfit together, read on. These styling tips and tricks make nailing the look as easy as one, two, three.

1. Leave your bottom buttons undone

When it comes to off-duty dressing, try a loud shirt with luxurious loose-fitting shorts. The key to styling this look is leaving the shirt’s bottom buttons undone – how many depends on how much skin you want to show and the shirt length, but as a rule of thumb undo half. Score extra style points and pair with box-fresh sneakers.

Opt for an extra-large size and pair it with bodycon separates

2. Balance it out with neutral basics

For those looking to dip their toes into the trend rather than go full-throttle, try paring a bold shirt back with crisp, clean and conservative basics. Opt for warm, neutral tonal shades like beige and off-white, and keep the styling super neat — think freshly pressed pants and the shirt tucked in.

Pull the boldness back with soft, tonal staples and a tidy silhouette

3. Size up and style your shirt open

Embrace proportion play by styling a loud, large shirt open over a form-fitting base, such as high-waisted pants and a crop top or bralette. When it comes to styling, go extra voluminous on your shirt size, and push the sleeves up so they bunch dramatically around your elbows.

Nonchalantly skip buttoning your shirt the whole way down
