Another popular style feature button-down shirts that feature two or more buttons down the front of the shirt. Many people like to have buttons facing out towards the person wearing them. This gives a sleeker appearance and it is more stylish than buttoning the shirt up at the chest area. However, some button-down shirts do feature buttons on the chest so that the wearer can wear their coat over the top of the shirt. This is an excellent choice for warm-weather wear.

Some people also like to add a collar to their striped shirts. This does not have to be done with buttons. A flat collar with an attached tie is just as fashionable. Collarless shirts are also popular.
