Wardrobe classic: the striped button-down

Street style—striped button-downs

I love a striped button-down: it’s so classic and fresh and masculin/feminin in the best possible way. Mostly I wear them with jeans—oversized and half-tucked—but they’re great with skinny trousers and skirts too. Very smart. I don’t own very many of them because I’m quite picky about which ones clear the bar, but here are a few that do.

& other stories shirt—striped shirts

This  one is cut for an oversize fit—just how I like it—and the blue is exactly right.

Madewell shirt—striped shirts

And here’s one that’s flannel, which is just so nice and toasty this time of year.

J Crew Shirt—striped shirts

A nice, crisp poplin number.

BP shirt—striped shirts

A slightly unorthodox choice, but I think it’s fun.

Equipment shirt—striped shirts

Some of the stripes here are actually rows of dots, which is cool.

And finally: I’m very tempted by this cotton band-collar from Everlane.

    Like all these, but nothing fitted here – with darts – which is what I’ve looked for everywhere.

    I bought my third Frank and Eileen shirt a couple of weeks ago. I seem to be unable to resist them.

      Aren’t they the BEST?!? I’ve got a collection going. I’ve also got an older iteration of the J Crew but in black/white stripes. And I’m loving the collarless Everlane.

  4. thank you – I love every single one of these striped shirts! I can probably only justify buying the flannel, don’t have a striped shirt in flannel YET (but lots and lots of silk, cotton and linen ones).

    button downs in stripes, gingham or plain light colors are my weakness. usually uniqlo especially those old +J ones. j crew too!

    I picked up the unorthodox choice at Nordstrom. It is great. The fit is relaxed and sexy. Kinda feels like wearing your boyfriends pj top.
