That’s because suddenly they’re everywhere, and also because they are right up my preppy/tomboy alley. I like the idea of them worn over button-downs, but they also look fantastic with long-sleeved tees. This one is the just-right amount of oversized to look slouchy (and not so oversized that it looks sloppy).
This one from Madewell has just the hint of a sleeve, which I dig.
The checked pattern here is fun, and the fact that it’s in pastel colors makes it comparatively subtle.
This ribbed number from Cos has a nice, deep V.
This is an alpaca blend, which ought to be nice and cozy, and it looks pretty luxe for something that rings in just under $100.
I must admit that I’m tempted by this pre-styled option: the shirt details are part of the vest
An elegant choice from H&M that’s just the tiniest bit cropped.
A Fair Isle pattern is nicely autumnal.
And finally, this button-up number might be my favorite. I’d layer it under a blazer for a Lady Professor look.
