LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Chambray Champion

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Denim has been around for at least one hundred years, being worn in various ways throughout its history. The most commonly worn piece of denim worn is the pant. Recently, though, the popular denim–chambray–shirt trend has made its way into the closets of many male and female college students.

This Fashionisto exhibited this new denim trend. He paired his chambray shirt with a black parka, a pair of dark tan chinos and sneakers. His pairing of the chambray shirt with the black parka’s minimalism, and the tan chinos and sneakers’ muteness, allowed the shirt to stand out in his ensemble. Surprisingly, a misconception about the chambray shirt is that it possesses a low degree of versatility, yet this proved wrong, since I found a variety of denim shades and colors that the shirt comes in. Thus, the chambray shirt has multiple potential ways of being paired in a Fashionisto’s wardrobe.

A denim shirt is the way to go, if you are ever want to wear a piece of clothing that is rich in history. The American flag printed on this Ralph Lauren denim shirt satisfies a Fashionisto’s desire for clothing with historical references. Opt for this Lands’ End denim shirt, which does come in a darker shade, if you don’t want to look too casual. This Paul Smith denim shirt is for the Fashionistos who want a more traditional style. Try any of these denim shirts with a pair of colored chinos, black pants or shorts.

Hint: If you are feeling bold, try pairing a lighter denim-wash shirt with a pair of dark indigo-wash jeans.
