My uniform during the warmer months of the year is simple: a T-shirt and jeans or a pair of loose, breezy trousers.
When I need to dress up a bit more, I try adding jewelry or swapping my sneakers for a nicer pair of shoes, but my outfit can still come off as a bit more on the casual side.
Usually, I turn to a pretty silk blouse in the fall, but come May – and the humid summer days that lie ahead – the idea of being swathed in a long-sleeve top is already making me break a sweat.
That’s where this comfy, oversized camp shirt comes in. Its super-relaxed fit makes it airy enough to wear on a hot day, and its off-white hue is so versatile. Sure, it’s 100-percent silk and requires a trip to the dry cleaner here and there, but I still think this top is well worth it. I can easily wear it with anything – jeans, sneakers, shorts, heels, you name it – and I’ll always feel polished.
