The chambray shirt and how to work it. We’ve all got one in the closet: the classic chambray button-down shirt. The plain-weave fabric was originally made in France, but of course, and is the origin of the term “blue collar.” We women borrowed it from the guys back in the 1940‘s, and no regrets.

You can find a chambray shirt in dozens of cuts and price points. This one is my favorite: a simple slim cut with a narrow collar and patch pocket. I roll up the sleeves most days, especially these 85-degree days! I found this Banana Republic chambray shirt at a thrift shop for under $10, and it’s a brilliant bargain.
A chambray shirt goes with everything, naturally, and today I dressed it up with a swooshy black tulle skirt. Add some sentimental jewelry, and you’ve got a modern mix of casual and dressy. I often wear wedge sandals with this look, but today I went with my new, love-them, Steve Madden oxfords.
