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.
A very nice, ultra-faded, well-priced option.
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.
Here’s a perfectly adorable Western-style shirt, for those who are so inclined.
I’ve got my eye on this shirt—also from J. Crew. It feels very 70s Lauren Hutton.
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.
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!
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.
On the other hand, I wish this tee went for less, but it’s pretty perfect.
Another very nice jacket.
These sweatpants are awfully cute, and they’re on sale.
I especially like blue camo, so of course this gym bag appeals.
I know that the paint splatter on this shirt will not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I sort of think it works.
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.
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.
And this striped number, by handbag designer Edie Parker, is just a kick.
Here’s one that’s on the quieter side of loud, but still nicely bold.
An embroidered case is a clever thought.
Just a really good leopard print—and it’s made of snakeskin.
