Fashion & Accessories

By Stephanie Williams

Ginghams, tartans, and exquisite weaves give us the Royal Warrant to pop that collar.

Whether it’s a picnic in the park on a breezy summers’ day or the first day of boarding school, the Oxford Shirt has transcended seasons and gender roles for generations. Tailored yet ladylike and flattering on all figures from svelte to curvy, this go-to piece solves nearly every “I have nothing to wear!” dilemma, equally polished when paired with slouchy boyfriend-cut shorts and A-Line pencil skirts.

It’s not our job here at BN to bore you with the historical significance of oxford cloth and tell you it’s an essential in every closet – that goes without saying – however, Barbour’s selection of summer prints are simply, as the English would say, “smashing.”

Visit Barbour’s website to locate authorized stockists in New York and further explore the world of Barbour beyond outerwear.
