If you’re like us – not ready to put your Summer palette behind you, then here’s a take on fitting in florals for Fall. We never think it’s nice to send your warm weather wardrobe into lonely hibernation, and the concept feels particularly unreasonable when that warm weather wardrobe includes a serious steal like our floral print tweed Dolce & Gabbana find from Nordstrom Rack.
So before packing up your sleeveless Summer shifts, we’d recommend taking another look. Because come Fall, they can easily become Fall jumpers with a little layering – just add a basic button down. Enter the world’s most versatile shirt – J.Crew’s Men’s Selvedge Chambray. This staple is in serious heavy rotation over here, as you’ve likely noticed. But versatility aside, there are a few more reasons it’s an essential. It’s from men’s line, so you get the classic, no-fuss, utilitarian look you want in a chambray. But it comes in a slim cut option, so you can skip the side of bulk when layering. The objective is to keep your wardrobe out of hibernation, but you don’t want to look like you’re storing up for Winter in the process. If you’re ready to pull the trigger and purchase online but aren’t sure what size to order, we recommend going down two sizes. I’m a S/M in J.Crew’s women’s line, and I’m wearing the men’s XS here.
