The Vacation Shirt

On my most recent trip to Tehran during the summer of 2022, my cousins took me to the Jom-e Bazaar, a monthly bazaar on Fridays which is very similar to our favorite local flea market, the Alameda Point Antiques Faire. Like myself, they love one-of-a-kind vintage treasures. It was at the Jom-e bazaar where I found the perfect short sleeve button-down shirts in lovely printed fabrics. I couldn't resist or decide between all of the pretty patterns, so I picked out two with prints that would blend well into my current capsule wardrobe.
An oversized button-down with short sleeves is my favorite thing to pack for a warm weather vacation; the style is versatile and can be worn in numerous ways throughout your trip. Wear it over a swimsuit, tucked into a pair of high-waisted trousers or a skirt, with sneakers or with sandals.
Consider the vacation shirt your new go-to menswear inspired top for your summer capsule wardrobe.
