Best Seller: Vince Side Button Prep School Shirt

Vince Side Button Prep School Shirt
I'm really enjoying this vintage-y, preppy androgynous look that the Vince label is showcasing these days. The overall vibe has an obvious fashionableness about it, but it's relaxed and casual. This shirt is just the latest such find from Vince's Spring line.

The Vince Side Button Prep School Shirt is a current best seller at online fashion boutique ShopBop.com. I think it's a combination of the completely unique shape and the signature Vince slouch that make it so popular. This shirt has a 7-button front closure, which can be either buttoned up the front or folded over and buttoned at the hip (as shown here).

Beyond the distinctive buttoning options, this shirt has a standard fold-over collar, patch pocket at the bust, and shirttail hem. So, really, you are getting two shirts in one -- a standard striped button up and a funky hip-button shirt. You can see both options by clicking through and checking out the full range of photos.

In hip-button mode, this shirt looks great layered over a tee and paired with boyish chinos, as styled here. You could swing it less preppy and more Summer casual by trading out the chinos for crop jeans. In standard button mode, this shirt could become a regular part of your workday shirt wardrobe, albeit with that inimitable Vince fit, which sets it apart from less fabulous button ups.
