LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Channeling Chambray

Let's Hear it for the Boys

I have no problem admitting my weakness for denim fabrics. It is so essential; I don’t think you can ever have too much of it. Denim and chambray are both derived from cotton, but chambray is the lighter of the two.

Coming a long way from your traditional pair of jeans, its durable fabrication has many end uses. As seen in this spring/summer season, chambray has made its way onto shoes, jackets and accessories, like hats and scarves. Casual dresswear is so appropriate for every day, especially with the ever-changing weather of Florida. This lightweight, basic shirt for men comes in an assortment of blue and neutral shades and offers a classic silhouette.

Spring’s trend is all about adapting simple yet versatile clothes, and chambray shirts are functional for both work and play. When shopping this look, opt for a timeless shirt that is worth investing in. Casual wear doesn’t always have to be cheap, so make an effort to shop for quality and comfortable fabrics that channel your style. When you are able to achieve versatility, you can mix and match your wardrobe depending on the occasion.

Casual wear is not something that is just thrown together. It simply sets the tone for achieving a put together look that communicates a laid back attitude. This Fashionisto creatively undertakes a casual-cool look, fitting for his school days. He pairs his indigo button-down with a neutral pair of chinos. Chino pants are becoming more common among men’s bottoms, as they are also versatile and look best when fitted to the body. You definitely want to stick with neutrals, because let’s face it, we all tend to wear our clothes more than once a week and that’s totally okay! Neutrals don’t command too much attention and can fly under the radar when wearing them with other outfits.

Hint: If the theme of your outfit of the day is casual, make sure to find accessories that are complementing. Go for effortless items such as a duffle bag, a backpack, sunglasses, hats or stylish sneakers. Be creative and shop for alternatives, embrace your options and channel your personality through your street wear.
