Just in case you thought you had too many well-cutnormalstriped shirts already... this one has an off-center placket and a chic oversized tie at the neck. Make it a bow, or wrap it around the back to tie in a simpler knot at the front. It's made up in a crisp, menswear-feeling Bengal stripe from Italy.
Ann Mashburn's Anaya navy blouse is features a rounded mandarin collar, and sweet gathers on slightly cropped bracelet sleeves. Which is really nice, because it means the cuffs don't get in the way of important things like writing or eating or answering the phone. We used this great Italian poplin that's soft and crisp at the same time.
