Chambray for Women - How to wear it and street style inspiration


What is Chambray?
Chambray and Fashion?

It  looks like denim, feels like cotton, and hangs like linen.  Chambray is a linen-finished gingham cloth with a white weft (across) and a coloured warp (down).  The coloured warp is usually blue (which is partly why we think denim), but it doesn't have to be, it is also produced in white and red, as well as yarn-dye woven prints.  . Although chambray is primarily a lightweight fabric, it is also made in heavier weights for fall.

Also by adding Lycra/spandex is blended into the chambray fabric content to produce stretch chambray.  Chambray is a plain weave fabric, and is weaved using a more basic technique.  Chambray tends to be a thinner material, moves a lot easier, and is much better suited for the summer/autumn seasons

Dress it up or dress it down, button it up,  tie it up or try it as a bathing suit cover up this Spring/summer.  It’s both classic and trendy at the same time, and provides a refreshing update to most outfits. 

Chambray Shirts are the most versatile and fool-proof piece a girl could own, you could pair it with anything and everything...maybe skirts, denims, shorts and be ready for a pulled-together look in seconds. 

There are tons of skirt options available as well as Chambray dresses which are also very popular.  The best thing about them? They go with any colour. Seriously. Besides, chambray skirts and dresses are dressier, classier, and all around more stylish.

Pair with your favourite skinnies for a classic look that is very in at the moment or Top a maxi-dress with a chambray blouse in place of a cardigan for a completely new look.
update that good ol’ sundress by finishing off the look with a chambray top, try leaving the top either unbuttoned and loose or tied at the waist.  Instant update!

If you’re unsure about the chambray trend, or if you want to try it in a way that’s really different from how everyone else will be wearing it, consider a chambray accessory or non-basic item such as a statement blazer. You’ll immediately score fashionista status by being both on-trend and unconventional.  Everyone can wear it, any way, almost anywhere.
