STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Chambray, The Classic Way

Style Advice of the Week

In the midst of slaving away at the library preparing for midterms and grappling with finally deciding what we want to do with our lives, it is easy to get caught in the rut of wearing the same comfortable clothes. For those days that you are recovering from a lofty studying endeavor but want the clean cut look to go along with the fabulous grade you’re sure to receive, opt for the greatly versatile chambray shirt.

This essential piece can add a touch of preppy chic to any outfit, while still being comfortable and more than presentable. The Fashionista here wore her chambray the classic way; over some black leggings and brown boots. As this Fashionista has shown, switching some brown combat boots in favor of the tall equestrian type keeps this outfit refreshingly different. A loose gray sweater on top completes the look of casual prep.

Wear your chambray shirt over some leggings and booties as this Fashionista has done, or wear it unbuttoned on top of a bright tank top to transfer from winter to spring. A chambray shirt also looks great tucked into a pencil skirt or peeking from beneath a three-quarter sleeved sweater. The classic and essential chambray shirt goes wonderfully with just about any bottom, and you can add some jewelry to go from class to a night out. Stay fresh and chic while keeping cozy at the same time with this ultra versatile piece. Maintain your college lifestyle and rock a great outfit however you decide to wear your chambray.
