1. Partially button your shirt

Start by wearing your button down as usual.

Keep the highest button open, then button the next 3 or 4 buttons, leaving all the rest unbuttoned.

2. Cross your buttons

Next, grab the lowest button hole and bring it up to meet the highest button, at the collar. Put that button through the hole.

Then, do the same thing on the other side, meeting the bottom button to the top hole. Then make sure the fabric lays flat.
