Layers. Every wardrobe needs them. It's how we transition from season to season as the temperatures change.They help us develop our own personal style. One such basic layer is the button up. What a versatile garment they are! From fancy to casual, from floral to charcoal, you can find the whole spectrum of styles, cuts, and shades in this one article.

We are happy to share that we have now introduced button ups into our line! Having a few dependable button ups that can go over any tee or tank is a must for us West Coasters. Anyone who has ever ventured out for a windy beach walk or sat around a campfire knows how valuable they can be. It is one of the most multi-season pieces you can own. We took ours in two different directions to suit the needs of the many.

RIO 

Rio is a cozy embrace. It is designed as a men's top, with more room in the shoulders and arms. We foresee it being the number one thing stolen out of a boyfriend's closet though. Or buy one for each of you, then no one has to share! Rock the oversized fit; tuck it in or roll up the sleeves if you need to. 

Flurry is our marbled blue made of 100% cotton to give it a soft finish and add structure to the fit. Our Navy and Coal are done in a tencel and cotton blend. The tencel adds in an extra bit of movement to the drape of the shirt and changes the feel to silky smooth.

REN

Ren is gentler. Onyx and Blush are made of a completely tencel fabric, to sway like silk, complementing your every movement, but not wrinkling with it. Our grey and white Mariner Stripe is a light linen with slightly more structure. Whichever fabric or colour, Ren is designed to be comfortable enough that you want to throw it on as a secondary layer for an outdoor excursion, or dress it up for a more formal occasion. 

As always, every fabric we used for these styles was so chosen because of it's properties of kindness. To our skin, to the Earth, to the ocean. Yes, we could use fabrics that are synthetically produced, but we want to feel good about what we are creating for the world. And we want you to feel good about what you're walking out the door in. 

Visit us at our Salt Spring Island and Victoria locations to try on our new styles, or order online from the comfort of your home anytime!
