STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hooray for Chambray

Nothing says classic American cool like an easy, breezy chambray shirt. The chambray shirt is a must-have item for this season. Originally known as a workman’s shirt in the United States, it is now a fashion staple being sold by designers all over the world. It’s the shirt that can be layered over an outfit for many reasons, whether it be warmth or for added sheen and texture. The best part about our beloved chambray is that it acts as a chameleon, blending in to fit with anything it is worn with. It’s no question that this item is easy to wear and will match everything!

This featured Fashionista wears her chambray effortlessly over a flowing white top and some stirrup leggings. Her time-honored Ray-Ban shades add a composed casual vibe to the look and her corduroy-and-leather bag adds some depth to the ensemble without taking it over the top. Most importantly, her casual outfit makes for great school-day apparel and fits into the changing seasons. 

Looking as awesome as this Fashionista is easy – take this chambray button-down from American Apparel. Dress it up with a high-waisted skirt and some tan oxford shoes. Or try dressing it down by leaving it unbuttoned thrown over a tank and some destroyed dark denim shorts. Either way, the chambray shirt is an item that you certainly cannot forgo this season.
