Button ups, Dresses, and More: Seasonal Favorites from Frank & Eileen!

Patrick White Popover Henley | Wicklow Chalk Italian Performance Twill

Now that summer has arrived, I’m excited to entertain in our backyard, enjoy my flower garden, go out for casual evenings with friends, and have lots of laid-back outdoor fun. So, I’m excited to have a few go-to staples by Frank & Eileen in my wardrobe that I can count on and wear throughout the season that are casual, cool, and comfortable. 

Joedy Boyfriend Button Up Shirt

Last year, I discovered the Joedy button-up shirt from Frank & Eileen, and I instantly loved it. The fabric is crisp, and I can wear it tucked in trousers or open over a tank with jeans for a casual look. So, this past week, I was so excited to receive a few new items from Frank & Eileen to try this season.

I’m always curious about the story behind a brand, so here’s a little more information about Frank & Eileen. The company started when Audrey McLoghlin, an engineer, set out to create the perfect button-up shirt for women. Inspired by her Irish grandparents, she named the company Frank & Eileen. They source high-quality materials and ethical and sustainable manufacturing practices. Plus, they are a B Corp, and as a women-owned and operated company, they strive to empower female entrepreneurs.

I love Frank & Eileen effortless styles that you can wear daily at home, to run errands, to lunch, or on your next vacation. I tried five of their best-selling styles and have been wearing them non-stop! Take a look below. I’m sure you will find a favorite!

1. Mary Dress

Say hello to Mary, the timeless button-up shirt dress! It’s so comfortable and a favorite style you want to wear often. Wear it alone, or style it by draping a knit sweater over your shoulders or tied around your waist. Plus, it doubles as a beach coverup on your next vacation. Also, I recommend wearing flat sandals or an espadrille for a casual and relaxed look. For reference, I’m 5’2″ and wearing a size XS.

One feature I appreciate about Frank & Eileen is the variety of colors and prints available for all of their products. There are so many options; I’m sure you will find a few favorites.

2. Rory Dress

This is Rory —a longer version of the button-up shirt dress that may become your favorite dress for the summer. Wear this dress as is for a relaxed look, or add a belt to cinch the waist and create a structured outfit. Like the Mary, this dress doubles as a beach coverup and a 3rd piece over a t-shirt and jeans. Also, If you prefer a shorter style, shorten this shirt dress to the preferred length. I’m wearing a size XXS in the Rory.

Try tying a sweater or button-up shirt around your shoulders for something extra—it’s a chic way to elevate the overall look. Plus, here’s a preppy styling tip: pop your collar and roll or push up your sleeves. It’s all about the small details that make a big difference to the overall look.

Are you interested in other colors of the Rory dress? Here are a few other color options from the collection.

3. Eileen Button Up

The Eileen button-up shirt has quickly become another staple in my wardrobe. Denim shirts are timeless, and loose-fitting button-ups are trending, so it’s a win-win combination. 🙂 These shirts also feature a bust-flattering button placement, which is perfect!

4. Wicklow Italian Chino

The Wicklow chino is a mid-rise, relaxed-fit pant with a distressed hem and comfortable stretch.
It’s a great summer pant for a casual everyday look, and I wear it on beach walks and while working from home.

5. Patrick Henley

The Patrick henley blends preppy and casual styles together, adding an effortless vibe to your outfits. You can wear it with the Wicklow chino for a classic look, tie it over the shoulders of the Mary dress for a preppy style, or pair it with your go-to shorts here or here.
