The idea of a button-down shirt is not inherently interesting. It's a standard, a classic—maybe even a little bit boring. But then put Julia Roberts in one (see: Pretty Woman) and all of a sudden, it's sexy without being overt—the movie was produced by Disney after all. But in the interest of us all not wearing the exact same Oxford, take a moment to consider the below. If Julia's shirt is a double scotch on the rocks, then these five are a martini up with a twist.

  1. Caroline Constas Alexandra Stripe Shirtdress: Design magician Caroline Constas makes the kind of clothing that reminds you of vacation but that's luckily also office appropriate. This dress' sloping hemline is longer in the back, which makes legs look longer, too.

  2. Frame Denim Le Classic Shirt: Clear skies, an open road, and this super-light silk shirt in the driver's seat. Works well with high-waisted jeans for that '70s feeling that's suddenly new again.

  3. Topshop Belted Cotton Blend Shirt Dress By Boutique: If you buy one thing this week, make it this wonderful side-belted dress. Two of us in the office already have. Welcome to the squad.

  4. Dion Lee Paneled Striped Poplin and Denim Top: A sleeveless top with vest-like qualities will be just what the forecast ordered on a hot summer day.

  5. Brooks Brothers Non-Iron Regent Fit BB#10 Check Dress Shirt: Borrowing a guy's button-down is cool and all, but why not just spring for your own—monogrammed and everything. It's about to get personal.
