I know I’ve said it before, but I think chambray is a wardrobe necessity. I’ve long searched for the perfect chambray dress. I don’t like ones that have a shirttail bottom since the rounded edges tend to unflatter my legs. I found this one at J.Crew Factory and it was perfect. The length hits right at the knee and the weight works well now and will through the fall (layered with some tights and boots, of course!) This leopard print belt and statement necklace dress up the look for work but I’ve also worn this with flip flops and more casual accessories for a BBQ.
Pear Shaped Pointer: If you follow the rules, you know that I like dresses to hit at the knee and outfits to taper at the waist for a more flattering look. With a chambray dress, that can be hard to do so taking time to find the right one can make a difference. Belting is essential for a pear, carrot or hourglass shape (carrots should belt too to give the illusion of hips!) However, if you are an apple shape or just want to show off your amazing legs, opt for something shorter and feel free to move away from belting.
