No nautical voyage is complete without the quintessential striped shirt, and lucky for you I have found the perfect one(s)! Anyone who knows me, knows that when it comes to stripes, I am like superman, with a closet full of what seems like exactly the same top (but trust me, I notice every nuance). Stripes are perfect for all occasions and when you’re travelling by boat, well – they are mandatory.
It’s no surprise that J. Crew is my go-to spot for my stripes. In fact, this year they actually initiated a brand new holiday – National Stripes Day – in honour of the legendary pattern!
When travelling by water, we don’t always have to be in technical gear, especially for those days wandering the port and popping into the shops. There is the “Perfect T-Shirt” in stripe for the ladies and the “Tall-Decked Striped T-shirt” for the guys. I could comment on the quality, but at the end of day all you need to know is that it is perfect for travelling as it can pair just as easily with technical wear as your favourite cardigan or pullover. Personally, one of my favourite looks, male or female, is to pair this crew neck tee under your favourite burgundy wool or cashmere v-neck, adding that extra bit of flare to a classic style.
Ranging anywhere from $35- $75 depending on the style, this is a must-have for all waypoints travellers.
