I've made my love of striped shirts very clear on this site over the years, but the bulk of my collection falls into one of two categories: black and white or blue and white. While that's chic and nautical and vaguely Parisian, I'll admit, it's also kind of boring. And I certainly hate to be boring, especially during the sunny summer months when I should be living it the hell up.
So, you can imagine my delight when I saw this J.Crew rainbow-striped linen shirt pop up while browsing Net-a-Porter this week. Not only does the button-up come in the slightly boxy silhouette that's ideal for sweltering summer days, but the candy colored stripes are undeniably charming. I mean, how could you not smile all day long walking around in this shirt? While the office consensus is that, yes, it's slightly dorky — Tyler says that her dad would "1000 percent wear it" — that doesn't matter to me one bit. I can't wait to tuck this baby into my high-waisted denim shorts and take a stroll through the park blasting the new Ariana Grande in my headphones. Happy summer, y'all.
J.Crew linen shirt, $80, available at Net-a-Porter.
