    Party down in a button-down

    OK, so maybe you’re tired of the throw-on-a-cardi routine. That’s when ya wear it underneath a sleeveless or strapless dress. But if you’re looking for something lighter (read: less likely to make ya sweat from all that dancing), opt for a blouse or button-down.
