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.
This one is cut for an oversize fit—just how I like it—and the blue is exactly right.
And here’s one that’s flannel, which is just so nice and toasty this time of year.
A nice, crisp poplin number.
A slightly unorthodox choice, but I think it’s fun.
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.
