Kate Moss and The Perfect Striped Sailor Shirt

I spied this photo of Kate Moss rocking a Breton Fisherman Shirt in the August issue of Vogue and immediately pinned it on my inspiration board. She looks timeless and chic but also totally Now. I decided to hunt down a striped shirt so I could do my own version of this look.

For a busty gal like myself, horizontal stripes are usually one massive fashion don't, but I felt determined to find a solution. In general, scoop or v-necks look better on my curvy figure and I didn't want any fussy details on a shirt already so graphic. Sailor inspired stripes seem to be everywhere at the moment, but they are often marred by big gold buttons, odd ruching and ill conceieved pockets, so I was excited to find this little number in the Boden catalog my friend Kristin passed along.

Simple, with a flattering neckline and just the right scale stripe. At least, it looks that way in the photo! We'll see how it fits when it arrives. I was happy to snag 15% off plus free shipping thanks to the coupon code on the catalog. Request your Boden catalog here. I can't wait to wear these with my orange capris and a pair of metallic Boat Shoes. What trends are you wearing this fall?
