Fashion Friday ~ How To Wear A Chambray Shirt

Friday, April 19, 2013
I'm kicking myself for not keeping the oodles of chambray shirts I had back in the 90s. Who knew they'd ever come back around again?

Well, they are back and better than ever. These days, they are more fitted and available in darker shades of blues and grays and are a perfect match for the season's colored and printed denim.

You can't go wrong with pairing chambray with printed and colored denim whether it's jeans or shorts. You know how much I love my green jeans? I wear chambray with green jeans all the time. At least once per week. That's probably too much, but it's sort of become my trademark look.

I love the traditional chambray shirt in the middle with the printed denim. If the printed denim has a blue base, be sure to match the chambray shirt with it. Otherwise, it clashes too much.

And animal prints with chambray? Love, love, love it!

The soft, comfy denim of a chambray shirt make it ideal for casual outfits. But the shirt can easily be dressed up by adding a chunky necklace or a scarf.

Or try a chambray shirtdress. A great option for those days when you need something dressy yet casual and polished.
Do you own a chambray shirt? How do you wear it?
