We get you some celeb inspo to make the most of your favourite shirt.

Be a crisp white number, striped or checkered version — we all have a button-down shirt sitting in our closet. But, we undermine the fashion possibilities of this ­fashion staple. Don’t limit your button-downs to ­formal suits or pencil skirts.

This wardrobe ­essential can be styled in myriad of ways. Take inspiration from celebs and pin up these looks in your style diary.

Like actor Deepika Padukone, wear a striped button-down shirt with a high-waist, sequin pencil skirt and top it off with a statement belt. Slip into strappy shoes and party in style.

Bell-bottoms are back in the fashion scene. Wear a checkered or printed shirt, like Kareena Kapoor Khan, with your flared pants. Finish off with pointed block heels.

Actor Jaqueline Fernandez wears a crop button-down version with a quirky graphic patch folded jeans. You can also tuck in your shirt for the same look.

Actor Kangana Ranaut styles a retro polka-dot version with a mini skirt and lace-up booties. This look is perfect for your work-to-drinks day.

Play the layer game in fall. Wear a classic, crisp white button-down shirt with a sleeveless waistcoat, like actor Sonam Kapoor.

Wear a crop sweater with your denim button-down shirt. Pep up your look with some statement jewellery.

Want to wear your shift dresses in fall? Pair them up with your button-down shirt and strut out in style.
