Style Advice of the Week

Denim is always relevant. I predict that there will never be season or trend report where denim is not incorporated. With that being said, this week’s style advice is a classy addition to your closet: the chambray shirt. I have to admit, when the chambray trend first became popular, I was not so sure about it. I mostly wear jeans and I thought I would never be able to wear one. Little did I know, these trendy shirts go perfectly with jeans. As you know, there are dozens of jean colors, and within these there is a subcategory of even more colors: all different shades of blue.

This Fashionista had no problem pairing her chambray shirt with other colors, as she paired her J.Crew button-down perfectly with black leggings and a navy blue blazer. She hit the jackpot with putting maroon, black, brown and blue together. But as you can see, this Fashionista also did a fabulous job mixing two alternate shades of blue and black together, which can be hard sometimes.

Chambray shirts come in shades across the entire spectrum of blues. Anthropologie has a particularly adorable darker blue tencel chambray. You can wear shirts like this one over leggings for a more casual look, as they come in an oversized style. If you are a fan of lighter colors in your wardrobe, you will love the Classic Chambray Shirt from Old Navy.

Perfect for wearing on workdays like this Fashionista chose to, or great for a casual day at the beach, a chambray shirt is so versatile. You can wear it as a shirt, like this Fashionista did or you can wear it as a cover-up or wrap over a simple tank.

Chambray shirts will be the next big thing in your closet and I guarantee you will want to wear your one everyday. After all, they are comfy, soft and totally chic. What’s not to love?
