Can Boomers wear chambray shirts and look cool?

Saturday, September 26, 2015

Absolutely! It probably depends more on your weight (the requirement of being somewhat slim is greater on women)...and is your style "natural" (girlishness is good!). How you wear it is very important. My favorite is pairing the shirt with white jeans, leather pants or my collection of jodhpurs. The look is great with native American jewelry..and a surprise red lipstick (a touch of glamor). Mix capes or shawls with this look. Wear riding (flat) boots...add a straw hat if you will. This NY Times article digs into its history and psychological suggestion. Very interesting, and worth reading!
