Chiffon is an incredibly lightweight, airy, semi-sheer fabric that is often associated with formalwear: bridesmaid’s gowns, cocktail dresses, eveningwear. But chiffon’s easy, breezy properties make it the perfect material for more casual looks, especially as the temperature continues to rise. Here are some ways to bring the elegant fabric into the everyday wardrobe this season:
