Items to Consider — Stripe Shirts


Words by Patter

With colder months comes outfit layering. Nothing lays the foundation better than a crisp striped shirt.

Smart but really easy to wear, find the right one and you’ll pull it out whatever might be in the diary. Wear oversized to keep things relaxed, and only tuck in to live your Working Girl fantasies. While it might signal ‘pulled-together’, this is actually an item that works hard so you don’t have to. From the artistic feel of Studio Nicholson’s Wirth to Balenciaga’s wonderfully wonky executive realness, we hope you’ll find a shirt to satisfy. The only bad news? Ironing is essential.
