Wardrobe classics: the denim shirt

Street style: Wardrobe classics: The denim shirt

I was not a denim shirt person until fairly recently, when I acquired a nicely oversized one from The Great that I now wear with stunning regularity. It’s pretty casual, and I’m looking for more tailored options, as well as ones that have a little something interesting going on (some people look fantastic in those with Western-style pockets—and I’ve included one below, just in the spirit of pleasing everyone—but that’s not so much my thing). I like wearing them best with jeans, for a classic Canadian Tuxedo look.

Topshop denim shirt—Wardrobe classics: The denim shirt

A very nice, ultra-faded, well-priced option.

J Crew denim shirt—Wardrobe classics: the denim shirt

J. Crew’s Always cotton-chambray shirt is pretty much perfect. It’s also forever sold out in most sizes, so I’ve linked to Net A Porter, where it is simply sold out in many but not all sizes.

Grlfrnd denim shirt—Wardrobe classics: the denim shirt

Here’s a perfectly adorable Western-style shirt, for those who are so inclined.

J Crew denim shirt—Wardrobe classics: The denim shirt

I’ve got my eye on this shirt—also from J. Crew. It feels very 70s Lauren Hutton.

NSF denim shirt—Wardrobe classics: The denim shirt

And here’s a slightly spendy (so of course it’s my favorite) denim tuxedo top. Clever.

And finally: I like this one because it’s hefty enough to be worn as a jacket.

Zero+Maria Cornejo excitement—an online sample sale

It starts this morning, ladies, and it is good. Up for grabs are runway items, one-of-a-kind pieces, and loads of ready-to-wear. Just to give you a sense of the savings: her dresses usually go for anything from $550 to $1895; at this sale, they’re available for $150 to $500. Similar markdowns exist for her pants, swimsuits, jumpsuits, and more. The sale ends Monday. Hop to it!

All of a sudden, camo

Zara camo jacket—All of a sudden, camo

I’ve never really worn camo,* but lately, quite out of nowhere, it’s really appealing to me. And what I’m learning is that as with leopard prints, there is good camo and bad camo, and right now, there’s a decent amount of pretty good camo out there. This jacket is a prime example, and it’s dirt cheap.

Current-Elliott tee—All of a sudden, camo

On the other hand, I wish this tee went for less, but it’s pretty perfect.

& Other stories jacket—All of a sudden, camo

Another very nice jacket.

Monrow sweatpants—All of a sudden, camo

These sweatpants are awfully cute, and they’re on sale.

Athleta gym bag—All of a sudden, camo

I especially like blue camo, so of course this gym bag appeals.

NSF camo shirt—All of a sudden, camo

I know that the paint splatter on this shirt will not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I sort of think it works.

Herschel Supply camo suitcase—All of a sudden, camo

And finally: I absolutely adore this suitcase.

*I know it offends some of you to turn anything that has to do with our hard-working troops into fashion. But the military has been influencing fashion for as long as the two have existed, so to my mind, it’s OK.

A loud phone case just makes sense

 

Case Factory phone case—A nice loud phone case just makes sense

That way, you can always find it in your bag. It’s more fun, too, right? Currently, I have a boring red Apple store-issue case, and am looking to brighten things up a bit, and am wildly tempted by this leather lightning bolt, which is a little pricey, but so, so good.

Edie Parker phone case—A nice loud phone case just makes sense

And this striped number, by handbag designer Edie Parker, is just a kick.

Rebecca Minkoff phone case—A nice loud phone case just makes sense

Here’s one that’s on the quieter side of loud, but still nicely bold.

Zero Gravity phone case—A nice loud phone case just makes sense

An embroidered case is a clever thought.

Case Factory phone case—A Nice loud phone case just makes sense

Just a really good leopard print—and it’s made of snakeskin.
