Popovers are my new favorite thing

7

Popovers aren’t especially new, or even new to me, but suddenly they’re all I want to wear, because they’re so easy, and a little more feminine than button-downs. This band collar specimen from Madewell is so crisp that you could wear it untucked and still look put-together.

This one, from Alex Mill, has a subtle Swiss-dot-and-stripes pattern going on, and would be perfect for a warm-weather vacation; I also like it in the blue.

Here’s a silk popover that I think is quite elegant.

I like the utility pockets here, and the slightly washed-out navy blue.

Here’s a choice in chambray that has an especially deep band collar. I think it looks more polished than most chambray shirts.

And here’s a dark denim option with ever-so-slightly puffy shoulders.

I’d wear this striped shirt just as it’s shown here: untucked with my favorite blue jeans.

 

This top skews a bit peasant-y, and it’s a really good red.

I find the subtle ruffle collar and the crisp, graphic print, quite appealing here.

 

I’ve got this Everlane popover in my shopping cart, and am most likely going to pull the trigger; I like the big pocket and drop shoulders, as well as the slouchy fit, and it’s one of the cheapest of the bunch. Here’s a similar top that’s slightly more refined, from Theory.

The squiggly print on this Rachel Comey top verges on the wackadoo, but I’m kind of loving it.

Red denim is kind of unexpected, and a nice weight for the weather we’re having now.

Baby blue is not my favorite color, but I think this would be great with a brown corduroy blazer.

 

I like the contrasting stripes on this well-priced top (it also comes in a very good pink).

    I want the one by Alex Mill, but I’ll probably get the J Crew blue & white striped one. I’ll still be happy – popovers have a way of doing that for me.

    What a great selection. The Madewell white, the Lucky brand red and the denim are all tempting me big time.

    Popovers are a godsend to ladies like myself, who are busty but narrow through the ribcage…which means that it is almost impossible to find button up shirts that fit through the body but don’t gape at the front.

    I love that red color! Great fall/winter color for me. Thanks for including it.

    OK. Long time reader here. Popovers are so not your new favorite thing!
    You’ve loved them as long as I can remember!
    Still, nice post

    My favorite workaround for button-downs’ refusal to play nicely with the girls
