Few things are more classic than a blue and white striped shirt. To me, it reads New England Coast. If you live in Connecticut, having a blue and white striped shirt should be part of your capsule wardrobe. Endlessly versatile, this shirt looks great with just about everything. It’s almost a neutral. LOL! This is the second time I have blogged about these shirts, I just can’t get enough of them! Today, I decided to pair it with simple white denim shorts and red heels to make the blue and white pop. It has a nautical vibe, so when I was scouting for photo shoot locations, a local marina was the perfect backdrop. As we were heading back to the car, we spied some sailboats on the sand and snapped a few more pics so the red patent leather t-straps could get some camera time.
I love this Ralph Lauren shirt for so many reasons! All the buttons fall in all the right places. The neckline opens enough to show off your favorite necklace and the collars are the perfect width to flip-up if you want a preppy look and drape a sweater around your shoulders. The sleeves roll up to give you three different options: all the way down and buttoned at the wrist, rolled up a couple turns to end below the elbow to give you a three-quarter sleeve or rolled all the way up like I have it in the photos. The fabric is super soft and made from a medium weight cotton. I’ve bought other striped shirts and the fabric is so thin that you can almost see through it. Once you touch this shirt, you can tell that it will look great for years.
