I love all of my pieces from Equisite Elements of Style. There’s the cozy Sofia sweater that has been on major repeat, the Nadine shirt that pairs well with everything, and the Maeve shirt that ties any look together. But there is one shirt that is a show stopper (pun intended): the Ophelia shirt.
Every time I wear the Ophelia shirt to the barn, I’m asked two questions: who makes it, and where can I get it? It’s all thanks to the beautiful lace detail on the sleeves that make this shirt feel like a work of art.
The tailored fit of this shirt will elevate any look and make your riding outfit of the day stand out, whether at the barn or in the schooling ring. I love riding in it in this in-between weather we’ve been having on the East Coast because it provides more warmth than a T-shirt but isn’t as heavy as a traditional long sleeve.
But my favorite thing about the Ophelia shirt is how easily it can take you from stable style to street style and everything in between (here’s a closer look at how I’ve styled some of these pieces for both the equestrian and non-equestrian follower). I’ve worn this shirt to the office with slacks (back when I had a full-time job), out to brunch, and of course, to the barn. Now that I work from home again and have a ton of video calls, this is my go-to shirt to achieve that professional look.
There are so many great Equisite pieces to choose from that it’s hard to pick a favorite, but I love the brand because of its versatility, style, and craftsmanship. These shirts fit me so well, which makes wearing them—especially riding in them—a delight.
