ALL IN THE DETAILS: Gladiator in a Chambray Dress

A popular fabric in the summertime is chambray. It looks similar to denim, but the material is thinner and more breathable. In the summertime denim can be a very heavy fabric and may feel very restricting when it’s really hot outside. Chambray gives people a chance to emulate the denim trend without suffocating from the heat.Chambray has been used for pants, shorts, shirts and dresses. Popular retail websites and stores that sell chambray pieces are Boohoo, Missguided, ASOS, Brandy Melville, Forever 21 and H&M. Plus, several celebrities have been spotted wearing this breathable and cute “denim” trend.

The Fashionista is wearing a mid-thigh chambray dress with two side pockets. She paired the dress with a colorful tribal print clutch. This clutch went perfectly with the dress because it added pops of color which extenuated the summer feel of the outfit. Chambray can technically be classified as a neutral/basic color, so any bag would complement it.

Gladiator sandals are also a popular trend in the summertime. The fit of the shoes can sometimes be tricky. The size of your foot and your calf need to be factored in when finding the perfect gladiator. Some gladiators can also make your legs look longer. Dresses and gladiator sandals are a popular combination and complement each other very well. This Fashionista accessorized her outfit with brown gladiator sandals. While overall her outfit is relatively simple, her statement pieces such as the sandals and the clutch purse allow her to elevate the look.

How To: This look is super easy to emulate. Just go out and buy a chambray dress, gladiator sandals and a cute tribal clutch to get this Fashionista’s look. If you want to take the look a step further you can add a bright red matte lipstick and a statement necklace. I would suggest a thin velvet or wrap choker to keep the outfit minimal and light.
