Style Advice of the Week

Chambray is one of the most versatile fabrics around. It is surely a holy grail item in thousands of Fashionista/o’s wardrobes. Chambray is a beautiful woven fabric that is created by weaving colored thread around white yarns. The end result usually has a slight resemblance to denim, which is why we associate it as such a casual woven fabric. However, we shouldn’t subject this beautiful fabric to strictly the casual events. Pairing up your chambray with skirts, or high-waisted denim gives off a casual cool essence.

I spotted this Texas Christian University Fashionista sporting the perfect Chambray oxford, an ivory skirt, a cognac handbag, nude wedges and dainty jewels. I love how this Fashionista paired her chambray with a floral crochet knit skirt. By keeping the ensemble neutral and adding spring wedges, this Fashionista was able to successfully dress up her chambray. If you want to dress down your chambray throw on a lightweight scarf, and high-waisted printed shorts.

When your ready to shower your outfit with chambray try pairing your classic chambray with this white Double Scallop Aline Skirt from Topshop. If your feeling daring tuck your classic chambray inside some floral ’80s inspired harem pants. Take cues from this Fashionista by adding classic accessories such as a neutral tote and simple jewels. This will allow the focus to lie on your classic chambray.

One last tip for Fashionistas- button up your chambray to the top, and layer a necklace under your collar for a quick outfit change.
