Chambray shirts have made a huge statement this year on campus, and I am not surprised. I first came to notice them over the summer while I was working at Old Navy and our manager put us in a special training to become familiar with the upcoming fall fashion items. Chambray shirts were one of the popular items in our training, and from then on I began to notice chambray shirts everywhere.
What stood out the most about this fashion trend is that people were wearing chambray shirts in all of these new and innovative ways. People were wearing them with shorts, combat boots, skirts, dresses and so much more. This Fashionista caught my eye because of the way she rocks out her chambray shirt. She is wearing a lace white dress, with a chambray shirt over and tied up to her mid section, brown gladiator sandals, a gold watch, a brown bag and teal and white earrings. What I love about her outfit is the elegance of the white lace dress paired with the casual chambray shirt. We get this blend of casual and elegant that makes the entire outfit perfect for a day of class in this beautiful California weather. All of her accessories also compliment the outfit by highlighting the browns in the threading of the chambray shirt and the hues of blue. Overall this outfit is gorgeous and very flattering, and I couldn’t help but want to find pieces similar to these and rock it out myself.
I am currently on the hunt for a nice chambray shirt. They are very versatile and comfortable for any body size and shape. It’s a must have item this fall, and if you don’t already have one then I highly recommend purchasing one of your own.
