Read any fashion magazine or style book, and you’ll learn that button-up (or button-down or button-front, if you prefer) shirts are a wardrobe staple. Choose a classic color like white or light blue, and you’ll look good in that bad boy for years and years.

Now, finding the perfect button-up shirt is no easy feat. They’re not all cut the same, so depending on your body type, you may have to do some hunting. That said, Amazon is the best place to start. Yes, you read that right: Amazon. While the website doesn’t exactly have a reputation for cutting-edge fashion, you really can score some great basics there. These nude tank tops are a must-buy, as are these bike shorts.

Amazon also has a perfect button-up shirt that deserves a spot in your closet. This Amazon Essentials Classic-Fit Long Sleeve Button Down Poplin Shirt is super popular among Amazon shoppers. It has more than 5,000 ratings, and for good reason; it’s a great shirt!
