Band Collars Aren’t Just for the Boys

·Market Editor

If you’re a keen shopper, you’ll notice that the current men’s collections heavily feature the band or Mandarin collar. It’s the relaxed summer alternative to the more formal collars necessary for button-upped attire. The good news ladies? The band looks equally as chic on you! Here are three outfit options that will work whether you’re going to the movies or the farmers’ market.

The Tunic Shirt
Headed for a leisurely stroll through the farmers’ market? This outfit is perfect for such an excursion. The tunic top is perfect for a weekend of errands and goes well with a pair of boyfriend jeans. Add these silver Acne sandals for some stylish flair.
