La mariniere, or the striped shirt, was obviously a must-have for my trip to Paris. This one I picked up at Debenhams, a few days before departure – you know when you’ve planned what to take, but there’s just something missing? La mariniere filled that gap and fitted well with my monochrome capsule wardrobe; the jersey fabric meant it worked well for day, but the slightly off-the-shoulder neckline takes it from day to night, especially when tucked into a pencil skirt. Tres bon!
