Basic Training: The Best Striped Shirts

Some girls hoard shoes, some collect bags. At Refinery29, we stockpile striped shirts. From cheap thrills to investments that we'll wear until we're pairing 'em with dentures, the bateau-stripe tops that make up our wardrobe are appropriate for all four seasons, match any trend, and work for nearly every occasion (yes, we admit to wearing them out to cocktail hour).
Believe us — we've got feelings about striped shirts, and know our way around 'em well enough to offer up expert opinions. Ahead, the eight best striped options out there, why we love it, and why you should, too.
