Business Casual

The Year-Round Outfit

There is one outfit that is always in style, always in season, and always looks good on everyone… all year round.  You could wear it to any city, state, or country and still look chic.  It’s a timeless yet effortless look – the chambray shirt with black skinnies.  They’re a closet staple that everyone should have.  

I love this outfit because I’ve worn it everywhere – from casual Fridays at work with a pair of black booties to roaming around Italian palazzos in my chucks.  The key is to find a simple shirt with a relaxed fit.  No need to go for the western look with the snap buttons or something too oversized.  That won’t last the test of time.  I love this particular chambray from Madewell because it’s soft and has the perfect fit.  

It’s a look that can be styled a million ways – I buttoned it all the way up and added a funky necklace for a look that’s a little class and a little edge.  You could also wear simple gold hoops and black shorts for a look that takes you into warmer weather.  Top it all off with a statement jacket like a [faux] leather moto or my big green tweedy number from J. Crew and you really can’t go wrong.   

Yep.   That happened.

    My kind of outfit– I love a chambray top + black pants look, and love that you kept it casual with the chucks. Great look!

      The jacket would be too much, but it looks good without it too! 😉
