Stripes were seen all over the runways this spring, and the best way to embrace the trend this season is with a classic nautical top. Started in Normandy in 1889, Saint James has cornered the market by making the perfect shirts in over ten different styles for men, women, and kids. Our favorite is the Naval II for women, in the traditional navy-blue-and-white stripe. It has a wide boatneck, side slits, and long, form-fitting sleeves. The thick combed-cotton shirts are extremely durable thanks to decades-old sewing and construction techniques, so you'll have this for many, many summers to come.
$115 at Saint James, 1045 Madison Ave., nr. 80th St.; 800-681-2631.
