Short-sleeve button-downs are a summertime staple. They look professional enough to wear to the office but are light and airy enough to keep you cool. United By Blue makes our favorites and they’re all 40 percent off right now. Check out the entire collection here or read on for our five favorites.
Ridgerunner Striped ($41)
Part hemp, part cotton, this shirt is thicker than the rest on this list and has eye-catching horizontal stripes.
Mountain Vista ($41)
Wear this mountain-patterned shirt on Mondays when you’re in the office but dreaming of weekend adventures. The patch pocket has a pen slot and the fabric’s 100 percent organic cotton.
Mountain Print ($41)
A patterned button-down for those just venturing into print territory, this shirt features a subtle micro mountain design and is crafted with hemp for durability.
Our favorite of the collection, the Wenlock, made of super-lightweight cotton, is great for extra-hot days.
Subtly classy, the Wellwood will help any ski bum fit in at posh vacation spots like Nantucket. And you can feel good about wearing it thanks to the blended hemp and recycled-polyester fabric.
