Insomniac Sale Picks: Chambray Shirts

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Kirsten requested a few picks for chambray shirts, so here we go:



Sonoma Essential Chambray Shirt – was $36, now $24.99

This cotton/Tencel blend shirt seems to have a great drape, and this medium wash is incredibly versatile. (Though it comes in a dark wash, too!) Available in sizes S – XL. Also in petites, and this similar style comes in sizes 14W – 24W. Also love this chambray tunic in regular and plus sizes.


J.Crew Factory Classic Chambray Shirt – was $68, now $39.50

Don’t worry, those sleeves unroll to full length! This is a 100% cotton shirt so won’t have much stretch, but has great, menswear-influenced styling with larger flap pockets and a perfectly neutral wash. Available in sizes XXS – XXL. This similar style comes in a variety of washes in sizes S – 3x.


Old Navy Chambray Button-down Shirt – was $29.94, now $16.16

Hmmm, Kirsten was hoping for chambray with stretch, and I’m realizing now that none of the dozens of shirts I scouted mentioned spandex … this one, for instance, is 100% cotton. (This collarless/workshirt one has 25% poly, but only comes in smaller sizes!) eBay and thrift stores might be better bets if stretch is a must! Anyhoo, this Old Navy shirt rounds out our pocket options nicely – high small pockets at Kohl’s, larger flap pockets at J.Crew, and a single pocket here. Available in sizes XS – XXL, including petite and tall sizes. Couldn’t find a similar one-pocket, but this light wash comes in sizes 10 -30.

Sustainable resources for chambray shirts:

  1. Study New York – Not many traditional shirts, but loads of fun, arty chambray styles.
  2. Alternative Apparel – Several light wash styles. This work shirt also comes in black chambray.
  3. Patagonia – Button-fronts and tunics made with organic fibers.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for chambray shirts:

  1. Gap – Summer is chambray time at the Gap, so get on over there for shirts aplenty, including maternity options.
  2. Kohl’s – Lots more in addition to the one above, including petite and plus sizes. This popover is a nice alternative to a classic button-front.
  3. J.Crew – At least five washes in trendy-Western styles. Love this selvedge version.
