You know that white button-down you have stashed away in your closet? Dig it out now. This old standby is the perfect piece to pair with pretty much everything else you own (like that crop top you seldom wear or that LBD that’s a little too showy for the office). Here, nine new ways to rock your classic collared shirt.

UNDER A SLEEVELESS SWEATER
Another office-ready outfit: Try turning that sleeveless sweater into a vest.
FOR A BLACK-TIE EVENT
