Madras is a classic warm-weather fabric, but this spring it’s popping up in new ways all over the place. For example, it makes a great blazer (très Andre 3000) and makes an otherwise normal oxford shirt spicy. If you just want to dip your toe in the madras waters, a skinny belt does the trick. But our favorite rendition is a Rugby by Polo is loving the long, breezy skirt. But our favorite rendition is the mini madras skirt. Always preppy and perfect at the beach, pool, country club, brunch or just a day out and about. Madras makes us feel like summer is just around the corner, even when we pair it with boots so our feet don’t get wet in the slush.
