One Classic Shirt + Five Indie Stores = Five Sleek Looks

By

The latest installment of Take Five tackles the most basic of basics: the white oxford shirt. Too many button-downs hang sadly in the backs of closets, perhaps because they have the tendency to make the wearer look, well, buttoned-up. We decided to inject some style into the schoolgirl staple by taking American Apparel's version ($58 online), giving it to Wilhelmina newcomer Omayra Ventura, and then standing back as sales associates from Dear Fieldbinder, Mafalda, Oak, Bird, and Mick Margo tucked, belted, and draped the shirt into radness. Click through our slideshow to see what each of our impromptu stylists came up with.
