The fit of the boyfriend shirt is a favourite for versatility and comfort. Pair it with jeans or a skirt for work, dress it up by cinching in the waist, or enjoy its casual style over leggings every day.
The Mara&Meru™ Boyfriend Shirt is the lifestyle shirt you can wear anywhere. The slightly over-sized styling of the traditional boyfriend shirt has established this as a contemporary fashion must-have and, with so many ways to wear it, it is set to become a classic addition to every woman’s wardrobe.
The Mara&Meru&trade Boyfriend Shirt is slightly longer than other shirts in our range and has a slightly lower hem on the back. At the same time, it retains the elements of feminine styling for easy-wearing elegance at home, out and about during the day, at work, or dressed up for smart occasions. The longer cut means it can be belted at the waist or hips or tucked in to achieve the desired look. The unimposing side slits are a subtle design feature that complement the overall look and fit of the shirt. Accessorising this timeless white button-up shirt with the right jewellery and accessories and pairing it with a cardigan, waistcoat, fitted skirt, great pair of jeans or trousers, or simply wearing it over leggings means this will likely become your favourite shirt no matter where you are going.
The Mara&Meru™ Boyfriend Shirt has a slightly simplified design as an everyday lifestyle shirt. This means it has no pockets or vents like many of our shirts. We have, however, retained the single button and loop system on the sleeves which allow for the long sleeves to be comfortably, conveniently, and stylishly rolled up and fastened. The sunglasses loops on the inside of the shirt are an industry first and were designed to secure your sunglasses to your shirt to stop them falling out when you bend over.
Say no to plastic packaging
Your Mara&Meru™ clothing is packaged in a recyclable paper bag. At The Safari Store, we are working hard to eliminate plastic from all of our packaging. This forms part of our commitment to a green future and the preservation of the environment, so future generations can enjoy pristine natural spaces.
Mara&Meru™ Boyfriend Shirt – Further Information:
⊙ MATERIAL: Made from 100% highest quality stretch poplin.
⊙ LONGER CUT: The hugely popular slightly over-sized styling of the traditional boyfriend shirt meets feminine flair in the Mara&Meru™ Boyfriend Shirt. The hi-lo hem and longer cut of this shirt makes it perfect to wear loose over leggings or cinched and belted at the waist or hips to achieve your desired look.
⊙ DETAIL: This classic button-up shirt as certain design features that contribute to its feminine styling. Front and back darts and small, subtle side slits make for a great fit and contribute to the overall styling of the shirt.
⊙ SINGLE ROLL-UP SLEEVE TABS: The long sleeves with single-button cuffs of the Mara&Meru&trade Boyfriend Shirt can be rolled up and secured by the subtle single button and loop sleeve tabs – just another way for you to wear this shirt!
⊙ SUNGLASSES LOOPS: An industry first! Many of us carry our sunglasses hooked over the top button of our shirts but, as we all know, our sunglasses often fall out when we bend over. We tested and trialled new sunglasses loops on the inside of the shirt. To prevent your sunglasses from falling out, simply use the first loop to secure them in place. If you are doing more active outdoor activities or for extra peace of mind, loop through the top and bottom loop. It is a simple solution, but highly effective.

Three easy steps to ordering the right size: ⊙ With so many different brands from all over the world available on the high street and online, the only way to get your size right the first time round is to compare a garment you own and which fits you well with one of our garments. STEP 1: ⊙ You will need a measuring tape, a flat surface such as a table, a notepad to record your garment's measurements - and your own collared long sleeve shirt which is a comfortable fit. ⊙ Tip: If you do not have a measuring tape, use your credit card. The long side of a credit card measures 8.5cm and the short side is 5.4cm. Simply use the centimetre measurements on our chart and divide by 8.5cm to get an idea of how many credit card lengths equals the measurement you are recording. STEP 2: Referring to the images above, place your shirt flat on the table and record the following measurements: ⊙ 1/2 Bust/Chest - Across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit; ⊙ Centre Back Length - From the nape of the neck on the back of shirt to the bottom hem; ⊙ Sleeve Overarm - From the top of the sleeve where it joins the shoulder to the end of the cuff. STEP 3: Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to your measurements. Chest/bust is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.
