Button-Down vs. Button-Up

Wondering what the difference between a button-down and button-up shirt is? Many times, these terms are used interchangeably, but there is a difference between the two. Put simply, button-down shirts are a certain kind of button-up shirt. While button-up - or button-front - shirts refer to any kind of shirt with buttons on the front, button-down shirts refer to shirts with a button (or buttons) on the collar, allowing for it to be fastened.

Formal vs. Casual

A staple of formalwear, a button-up shirt is a quintessential part of the wardrobes of kids and adults alike. If you're looking to strengthen their dress attire, a long-sleeve dress shirt will do the trick. Additionally, if you're worried about them getting chilly, you can add another layer of class and comfort with a sweater over their dress shirt! To complete the look, you can match your young one's new dress shirt with a tie and dress pants to have them stand out at any formal gathering!

While dress shirts are the perfect addition to your young one's formal attire, finding the right button-down for more casual, everyday occasions can give them a distinguished style. A short-sleeve button-down shirt untucked with denim pants is a great way to make sure they're stylish on school days! Pairing this look with their usual sneakers can give off the perfect cross between classy and casual.


With many different options to choose from, Kohl's makes it easy to create a distinct style for your little one. Whether they want to try out a dress shirt that's striped, plaid, or with a unique design, there are plenty of possibilities that will fill out your child's wardrobe with ease!
