You know how your favorite pair of pajama pants are thin and airy and just a teensy bit sheer? That’s what I also love most about chambray. The perfect fabric for summer, chambray lets your skin breathe while you look effortlessly cool. Cool as a cucumber, in fact. A cucumber in a fizzy spiked drink…
Chambray can go prep quickly, so don it in updated silhouettes: the tube top jumper, fitted crop top, or long-sleeved romper. These shapes are all quirky in a nonchalant, borrowed-from-the-boys, super wearable way. Myself, I’m lusting after that floral printed romper from Topshop.
If head-to-toe chambray is still too Nantucket for you, why not dip your toes in by accessorizing with it? A gauzy scarf pairs with pretty much everything, while those TOMS are a the perfect degree of effortless élan.
