Insomniac Sale Picks: Chambray Shirts

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, 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?*

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

maison jules chambray shirt

Maison Jules Long-Sleeve Chambray Shirt – was $59, now $34.99

Although this shirt lacks princess seams and the darts we might normally see on a button-front, the overall shape curves in at the waist and those strategic pleats in front give it some feminine flair. Features rollable long sleeves with buttoned tabs.  Available in sizes XS – XXL. (This similar wash is available in 1X – 3X, but is not currently on sale. This guy is on sale in 0X – 3X, but has a studded collar.)


Old Navy Classic Chambray Shirt – was $29.94, now $25

Bridget was hoping for something fitted, and that’s proving challenging to find on sale! This shirt is also more shaped than fitted, but most reviewers found it to be a relatively close fit. Available in this wash and a lighter wash in sizes XS- XXL. Plus versions aren’t on sale and sold out in 3X-4X, but still available in 1X-2X.


J.Crew Factory Two-Pocket Chambray Shirt – was $68, now $44.50

And here’s the darkest wash of the night! Those sleeves do unroll to full length, making this a fun option for fall and winter layering. Available in sizes XSS – XL. Also see this lighter wash in a very similar style for $49.50.

NOTE: For truly fitted chambray, I’d check J.Crew and Madewell. They won’t be cheap, but they’ll be slim-fitting!

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

  1. Gap – No surprise here! Love this tailored fit one.
  2. ASOS – Some are boxy, to be sure, but plenty of fitted options like this one.
  3. Zappos – Kinda heavy on printed chambray, but some basics mixed in, too.
  4. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! My own chambray shirt was thrifted. ( can help you locate stores near you.)

    Hi Sally, FYI: I just found a great chambray shirt at the limited. $50.00 regular price but I got it on sale for about $35.00. It’s pretty nice quality and it’s fitted.

    I own the Old Navy shirt. It’s got darts in the back which give it a little more shape.

    Sally, these are great suggestions. I was wondering if you could perhaps do a post on leopard/animal print jackets or cardigans.

    I have the J. Crew Classic Chambray shirt. I’m 5’11”, 36-28-38 and the size S fits me great. It’s fairly fitted, and the wash is darker in person than the photo (at least, it is on my screen). It’s great, I love it. It was just on sale for about $40 and I caved, because I was tired of searching (I’ve been keeping an eye on J. Crew and ebay for the last 2-3 years and kept failing to find one for less than $50-$60). Of course, AS SOON as I bought mine, a bunch popped up on ebay – so I would also suggest trolling ebay for those j crew chambray tops, maybe you’ll get lucky!
