A Can’t-Miss Casual Classic: White Oxford Shirt and Jeans
An oxford-cloth button-up shirt and jeans is my favorite casual way to dress year-round. It’s comfortable and classic, and yet contemporary at the same time. These two don’t go out of style.
Oxford cloth is a wonderful cotton because it’s very durable and yet it’s so soft against the skin. It also stays cool in warmer weather, but is great for layering when the weather is cold. Did you know that “oxford” refers to the symmetrical basket weave of the cloth or that the cloth was invented in 19th century Scotland? I didn’t. I also didn’t know that the oxford shirt was originally used for polo players in England. How neat is that?
Although you can’t see it in these photographs (it’s hidden under my hair), my oxford shirt is personalized with my own monogram. This particular one isn’t available anymore, but I found wonderful oxfords at RalphLauren.com that can be monogrammed if you wish. I love, love monograms!
I hope you’re having a peaceful holiday season and, as always, thank you so much for visiting my blog!
