From The Office To The Club: The Sleeveless Oxford

After laying in wait all winter for the skin-bearing seasons to commence, I’m annually bemused to remember that conservative workwear isn’t seasonal. My side-boob baring tanks and snarky crops have no place among white-collar office workers, who are still tied down by puritanical values and pleated khakis. At heart, I’m a jeans and a tank top sort of girl. So what top type translates (SAY IT THREE TIMES FAST) from lunch with the boss to drinks with the girls? You guessed it: a sleeveless oxford. The sleeveless oxford’s defining element is structure, which represents something much different than your standard tank or tee.  It’s the ideal combination of casual and formal, suited to a vast array of social and work occasions. Simply switch your work blazer for a leather jacket and you’re ready to hit even the most hipster-plagued social scene.

Here are 7 handpicked options for the stylish and versatile sleeveless oxford.
