Style Advice of the Week

As the warm weather begins to spring upon us, so does the sight of summer. As the end of the semester approaches, the amount of activities and homework to complete drastically increases. Students are rushing around campus and attempting to survive those late night library study sessions just to complete everything. Also, although it’s spring in Wisconsin, any smart Wisconsinite knows to be prepared for cold temperatures even though the weather report displays a high of 70 degrees. Light layers become a necessity for the unpredictable weather.

This week’s Fashionista  is prepared for any quick shift in the weather. She pairs her brightly orange colored cotton skirt with a simple white short sleeve T-shirt. To keep warm, she adds a lightly dyed chambray shirt. For those of you that are unsure what a chambray shirt is, it’s just another fashionable term for a button up denim shirt. Not only providing a light layer, this shirt also dresses up the outfit in a quick and easy way; perfect for any student with an on-the-go schedule. Similar to many other things in fashion, the styles of a chambray shirt are endless, perfect for defining a look all your own. Chambray shirt vests are perfect for the hot summer days, while patterned long sleeve chambray shirts are perfect for evening events. These shirts work for any season.

The versitility of these chambray shirts are endless. They pair great with colored jeans, darker denim or, like our Fashionista, with a skirt. Just been sure to pair your chambray shirt with different shade of pants or skirts, as you want to avoid looking like Brittany Spears at the 2001 American Music Awards. Another way to add chambray shirt to your style is using it as a beach cover up. Using an oversized chambray top with your swimming suit is a chic outfit for the beach. The possibilities are endless to creating different outfits, it’s all up to you.
