3 Madras Outfits That Don't Require A Vacation To Nantucket

May 24, 2010 by carla

With Madras plaid, as with tie dye, there is a fine line between wearing it right and totally wrong. The slightest misstep will make you look like you should be vacationing in Nantucket, but it is possible to wear the print for any location or occasion.  Check out these Madras style suggestions that you can use for work, a night out, and the beach:

Madras For Work

For work, choose one Madras piece and balance it with a neutral basic.  This Gap Madras Shirt ($54.50) has 3/4 sleeves that keeps it from looking messy, and the bleached-out colors give it a worn-in charm. With a Not Your Daughter’s Skinny Jeans pencil skirt ($88), and something like this Banana Republic cardigan ($69.50), you will look relaxed and summery, but still professional.

Madras for a Summer Night Out

For evening, stick with Madras pieces that have an interesting cut. We love this Mango Chutney Corset ($78) from Anthropologie. The peplum details will hide a full tummy and it will look great with a pair of heels and skinny jeans. This Nanette Lepore Bermuda Madras Shirtdress ($378) is another great option that has flutter sleeves, cozy pockets, and a surprising open back.

Madras For The Beach

We adore the Saskia Floppy Hat ($55) from RL Rugby because it has the perfect laid-back vibe for summer. And this J.Crew Purple Madras Ruffle Bikini top ($46) and bottom ($44) are beyond adorable. The ruffle detail on the bikini and the vintage-inspired balconette cup will be your summer go-to.
