Upon doing our weekly style blog and magazine peruse, the Southern Femme team noticed a trend– the chambray (aka denim) shirt! While this type of shirt has always been a classic/basic, designers are reinventing both the designs of the shirts, as well as the way to wear them!
Here’s our take on the year round must have– the Chambray Shirt:
Get this Carven cotton poplin with chambray collar button down HERE! With a touch of chambray, this button down is downtown cool paired with printed silk skinny pants, comfy ballet flats and an array of stacked bracelets.
Get the Madewell chambray button down HERE! A chambray button down can truly be dressed up, or down! Try wearing a dark wash denim shirt unbuttoned over a well-draped tee, then tucked into a pleated maxi skirt. Cuff and roll the sleeves to show off your favorite chunky watch stacked with another bracelet to look truly effortless.
Get this Bowed A.M.C Chambray Shirt HERE! Go classy and chic with your chambray look. Pair a printed or solid pencil skirt and a fun earring or statement stud to give your look the perfect touch. And finally add a great looking pump! This richly hued suede peep-toe pump transitions smoothly into fall.
Get this Marc by Marc Jacobs Chambray Button Down HERE! For a look that’s causal, yet still pulled together - pair a printed scarf with your chambray, and lastly a muted colored jean. And yes, you can do denim on denim! BUT the #1 rule of thumb to master this look– they must be different colored denim! A great leather pump keeps it sophisticated, and a bright purse adds that final pop.
