Boden is running a really great winter sale right now (with free shipping on orders over $49). I just noticed that that “The Classic Shirt“
is on sale in most colors–the colorway that I am wearing here is 50% off, and dug up this post from a few months ago that I forgot to finish.
The size that I am wearing here, 2P, is the smallest that petite sizes come in and fits more like a 0P at American mass market retailers. The shirt is designed to be only semi-fitted, so you don’t necessarily have to size down if you are looking for a more tailored fit. Here are the shirt’s measurements in 2P: 22″ (sleeves); 17″ (underarm to underarm); and 26″ (overall length).
The material–100% cotton–is crisp, machine washable and not as wrinkle-prone in print colorways as you might expect from a material that doesn’t have some percentage of elastane. I would recommend that you stay away from the solid colors, though, as wrinkles show more easily in those colorways.
The shirt’s cut and design are hardly original, but the prints give the style life. Wear it tucked into pencil skirts for work, or untucked with skinny jeans casually, the shirt is versatile enough to transcend occasions. Here are some ways I wore it in the fall:
