Upon first glance, the Samantha Printed Shirt ($48) from Roots looks like your average patterned button up, but it's a sneaky sucker. This is the shirt that you have to resist washing immediately after wearing so you can put it on again tomorrow. The cut is supremely flattering, with a cinched waist (complete with cute bow in the back, score!) that gives us all hourglass figures and the cotton is soft and comfy, not stiff and starchy like so many button ups. It works with a cardigan in the office or a denim mini on a Saturday. We're thinking we might even sleep in it.
