The Perfect Outfit: Get Ship-Shape-Chic With a Striped Boat Shirt

perfect-outfit-sailor-shirt2
The simple striped, jersey shirt has been around for as long as the Little Black Dress since Coco Chanel stole the look from a working-man uniform and made it a chic closet staple. Worn with jeans and flats, or with heels and a blazer, this boatnecked tee goes with just about anything. We're big fans of how Yuri on Streetpepper took a simple approach and wore it oversized, slightly off-the-shoulder, with belted khakis and buttery loafers to put together a perfect outfit. We've culled together some replica goodies to get ship-shape for yourself!
