Move over crisp white shirt to make way for “chambray shirt” as a wardrobe must have. Chambray shirts contrary to popular belief arent denim but a light weight woven fabric of indigo coloured thread and a bleached horizontal thread. A standard-issue uniform for the U.S. Navy in the World War II; it has evolved to become a versatile piece of clothing for both, men and women. The beauty of this shirt is it can be dressed up or down easily. From being a great option for casual Fridays or a cookout or running errands the chambray shirt is definitely a must have for every fashionista.
Here is my take on wearing chambray shirt in 4 different ways –
Chambray shirt can easily work well with leather, studs and spikes to pull the grunge look. Read my post on how to do biker chic.
This shirt can transform you to the girl next door when combines with skirts and goes well with all kinds of prints from paisley like here to graphic prints.
Chambray shirt is the perfect piece to combine with another denim be it a skirt, shorts or jeans for a casual look.
Try layering using a chambray skirt like here combining it with a vest or a knit top for friday dressing.
