Closeouts. In this gorgeous sateen shirt from Paperwhite, artistic brushstrokes capture abstract florals drenched in sunny yellow, with matching pick-stitching and translucent yellow buttons putting the finishing touch on the beautiful scene.

I don't wear dress shirts often but the fabric looked so beautiful and crisp, and I have been pleased with other Paperwhite shirts.
I am tall and slim with broad shoulders which makes finding shirts that fit my shoulders but are slim enough in the body difficult to find, so I usually wear fitted knits. This shirt is lovely, and at the price I decided to keep it, though I found the body to be shorter and wider than I would prefer, and the sleeves were rather wide and short as well. I will probably move the button in on the cuff to make it a bit more fitted. As most reviewers noted, the fabric is beautiful and the shirt is well constructed with nice detailing.

I bought this a while ago at a high end dept store and paid full price. It is a great shirt and the stitching and buttons give it an expensive feel. My friends all love this shirt and compliment me everytime I wear it. Some say it has a vintage look. I saw it on sale here and grabbed it so I have a spare in case the other wears out. It is true to size - I am a Med/size 10, 34DDD and it fits perfectly. Wash and hang dry with a little ironing and it looks fabulous, but you could probably dry on low.

I don't wear yellow near my face because it washes me out but I loved the print and Paperwhite makes beautiful quality shirts so I decided to go for it.
It's a gorgeous shirt with pretty, understated details like small glass buttons. The fabric is lightweight and stretch with a light sheen. And I like the shape a lot. I bought the shirt in a size 14 which is a lot larger than me regular size because I wanted to wear it as a jacket over a camisole or Tshirt.
I also like the print - it's unusual and subtle enough so the shirt makes a statement but in an understated way.
It will be a great Spring piece that I can dress up or down.
The only negative on my end is it's so fitted it's hard to think of it as "classic" sizing. I guess it depends on your personal preference. If I planned to wear it tucked into jeans I'd buy the shirt in my regular size.
As I mentioned it's not a typical piece I'd buy but it's the type of piece that adds some style to a wardrobe made up of classics in neutral colors. I'm looking forward to wearing it.
