The Look: I have a chambray shirt that I have been meaning to pair with unconventional separates sitting in my closet staring at me. I always manage to throw it on with a pair of white pants or shorts and call it a day. While that works, it's a lot more fun to experiment with unexpected pairings. And no, I don't mean going all Lady Gaga and selecting green hair with bright red lips and see-through dress. Brooklyn Decker demonstrates perfectly how to use a classic wardrobe staple in a way that works beautifully for our demographic. Wear this kind of outfit to your summer internship in the city, and meet up with your friends for a drink later without changing a thing. You won't be too dolled up for work, but you won't be too casual for later.
Getting It Right: Start by selecting a chambray or pale denim button-down shirt. Make sure it's slightly fitted and not too loose (this is why my shirt doesn't play well with other items). Instead of a khaki skirt or solid-colored bottom, go for a metallic printed option for a more playful, dressed-up vibe. Add a belt to accent your waist and tie the look together, and don't even think about wearing flats or sandals. This kind of skirt calls for sleek pumps to complement its fancy flair. Throw on some dangly earrings and the ever-fashionable grey nail polish to finish it off.
