THE RIVIERA SHIRT

Take your style cues from the South of France this summer. This natty striped shirt epitomises the relaxed vibe of the Mediterranean, says Ian Wright

The French Riviera has long been a region to look to for a bit of summer sartorial inspiration. The laid-back luxury, the lightweight fabrics and the effortlessly easy beach-to-bar styles are all important in honing your hot-weather look. This striped shirt is the epitome of that louche confidence; the turned-up short sleeves will help you stay cool at home or abroad, while the button-down collar brings just enough structure for smart or casual relevance. Worn open over a T-shirt with a pair of swim shorts, it works for day; come sunset, button it up with crisp chino shorts for a more dashing dinner ensemble. Double-duty pieces equal less packing.
