L.L.Bean isn't the only brand rolling into town this week—Dress for Success Boston and InStyle Essentials have teamed up for a charitable pop-up shop at Copley Square tomorrow and Saturday from 10am to 6pm. The two-day event will take place in a mobile lounge and dressing room to explore the "Perfect White Shirt Collection," intended to combat those ill-fitting dress shirts you begrudgingly wear to work.
Visitors to the pop-up can peruse a selection of the fashion staple that employs TrioFit Technology, a patented sizing system allowing women to shop by bra size (successfully preventing any bust-area gapping). The collection is available in 30 sizes, from 32B to 40H, with a classic button-down style, a brunch-friendly tunic, and a blouse. TrioFit is not only a new way of looking at white shirts, it's also founded by a Bostonian, Rebecca Winn Matchett. With each shirt purchased, InStyle Essentials will donate one to Dress for Success, which gives them directly to disadvantaged women transitioning into the workforce.
