Ultimate Chicago Gift Guide: Statement Shirt

Eating local is all the rage. Why not shop local, too?

Check back here every day for a classically Chicagoan take on the holiday gift guide. Here, you’ll find either a sophisticated or fun holiday gift item made by a Chicagoan, produced by Chicagoans, inspired by Chicagoans or sold exclusively in Chicago.

FOR THE GUY OR GAL WHO WANTS TO MAKE A SERIOUS STATEMENT

Idle.Wild is making a statement with its “Nothing is the new black” crew. The unisex item costs $125 at Hyde Park’s trendsetting Sir and Madame boutique and can be purchased online at www.sirandmadame.com. Autumn Merritt, with Sir and Madame, recommends wearing this item in a number of ways. “For a tailored look put a white blouse underneath and pair with skinny or flared trousers and a great black heel,” she says. Or, “it can be grunged up, with motorcycle boots and distressed denim, or dressed down with leggings and your favorite sneakers.”
