There are few items more classic and effortlessly chic than a button-down shirt. It’s endlessly versatile and works year-round. It’s also the single most-worn top in my closet – which is why I have LOTS of them. I love different ones for different reasons, but one of my forever favorites has and always will be the “Eileen” shirt from Frank & Eileen. I just love the fit. It’s a classic style with a slightly more relaxed vibe. The overall look is roomy but not so oversized that I would classify it as a “boyfriend” style. It’s cut at the perfect length (short in the front and a touch longer in the back) for a half-tuck, and the material has this secret crinkle to it, giving it a slightly unique texture. A shirt this good makes it totally acceptable to buy more than one (or, in my case, five). Luckily, it comes in a million different colors along with several different patterns (this double-stripe one!), too. Scroll down to check out all of the options.
