Make the Gilbert Top by Helen's Closet - a button up shirt with a camp-style collar and a relaxed fit! Students can choose between two views: View A has short sleeves and a tie-front, and is is slightly cropped but still very comfortable with mid to high-rise bottoms. View B has long bell sleeves and a longer length, perfect for tucking into high-waisted pants. This everyday top is ideal for all seasons and works for both professional and casual styling. Mix and match the views to get loads of great looks!
