If I had to choose one piece of clothing as my summer must-have, it would be the white button-up. When I recently snagged this Madewell tie-front shirt from Nordstrom, I knew it would quickly become one of my go-to’s this season.

Madewell Tie Front Shirt: 5 White Button-Up Outfits For Summer

This shirt is a twist on the traditional white button-up — super lightweight, breathable, and best of all? It has a cute little tie-front that gives you endless possibilities.

Since I’ve been wearing this non-stop (I love it so much!), I thought I’d share some outfit inspo below…

Outfit 1. White Shirt + Distressed Mom Jeans & Espadrilles

This is the OG outfit for me — one I’ll be wearing for the majority of summer. I love Good American jeans, and this pair is such a cute option with a slight mom jean vibe. FYI, this cut of GA jeans has zero stretch and they do fit true to size. These jeans are SO versatile…I also like to wear them cuffed for a little peek of the ankle. I finished off the look with my fav espadrilles by Soludos. This brand never disappoints with fun, seasonal patterns & cute little sayings on their shoes. If you’re anything like me and love to get dressed up (even if it’s just to go to the grocery store), this would make for a pretty great shopping outfit.

Outfit 2. White Shirt + Rib Knit Dress, Jack Rogers & Straw Crossbody Bag

I recently did a Target Haul video on my YouTube channel and this beautiful rib knit dress was one of my stellar finds! I absolutely love the sage green color and the fit and style for summer. The icing on the cake = it’s only $25. This dress reminds me of several other rib knit dresses I have from Leith, and it’s so comfortable. This dress is sleeveless with a crew neck and double-sided slits (be sure to click through for more photos). I pair this dress with my oldie-but-goodie Jack Rogers sandals and a straw crossbody bag. I love this look for an evening stroll on the beach, or in my case, around the lake.

Outfit 3. White Shirt + White Jeans, Strap Slides & A Mini Bag

I love a good monochromatic look, and these NYDJ jeans made the entire outfit for me! The only downfall of these jeans is that the pockets are visible, but they do pass the undies test!! I was impressed that my floral undies were nowhere to be seen. These jeans have great hold, and I love the fabric. I added a cute black mini bag and my fav black strappy slides from Nordstrom. This outfit gives me all the date night with my besties vibes!

Outfit 4. White Shirt + Joggers & UGG Fuzzette Slippers

I ordered these joggers and UGG Fuzzette slippers on a whim when Macy’s was having a super-sale, and I have to say, I love them both so much! Lavender and citrus is my new color combo of the season. These joggers are the perfect shade and the material is super-lightweight — perfect for keeping cool all summer long. You can’t beat a jogger that’s just $38 (available in several different colors, too).

Outfit 5. White Shirt + Striped Midi Skirt & Balenciaga Slides

I love a good midi skirt, and I’ve had this one for at least eight years. It’s probably one of the oldest pieces in my collection. Unfortunately, finding a plus-size striped midi skirt is proving to be a challenge, but I linked to a really cute black midi skirt from Reformation (plus a few other striped midis) below. I paired this with my new Balenciaga slides, which would look great with that Ref midi as well!
