There is one 'trend' that I believe will never fade: chambray, bay-bay (yes, I know, I have made that joke before. *eye roll* I still think it's funny)
If you are unfamiliar with what that is, chambray is a very light plain weave fabric, woven with a colored yarn in the warp and a white yarn in the weft. Denim is also constructed with a colored yarn in the warp and white in the weft, but is woven in a twill construction. Chambray is a much lighter fabric because of it's construction; denim is much heavier because of the threads overlapping in the weaving process.
Now that we got that lesson out of the way, lets talk about why it's one of my fave ways to dress up or dress down, for any occasion.
- Super light weight
- Easy to mix and match
- Easy to layer
THOSE PANTS GAAAAH. I am obsessed with these pants; and yes, you CAN wear these pants if you got a little more booty or junk in yo' trunk girls. ALERT -- PSA: YOU CAN WEAR ANYTHING. Sometimes when I go shopping and see something that would be flattering on a smaller girl and maybe something I would never think to wear, I think "UM, I HAVE A BODY, I'M WEARING THIS B*TCH" and then I buy it and I'm happy. It's simple really, I like something I buy it, I wear it. I really try not to let stereotypes or ideals influence my love of fashion and clothes. If it fits, it's mine. ;)
I love an all white ensemble with a pop of color and the red and chambray offer just enough color and flirt while letting all these pieces still shine; the chambray is still the star of the show but nothing is too over powering -- perfect for a summer night dinner on the beach or casual Friday at the office.
This look might be one of my faves -- I love the casual look of the chambray mixed with the glam metallics -- SOO CUTE! It can be a super cute casual outfit for your weekend or change up the shoes for a wedge or block heel and you got yourself a spicy little number with your boo thang. *insert heart eyes emoji here*
Gray might be my favorite neutral color (actually, I can't pick favorites, I love it all!!!) but sometimes you might want a little color to break up the monochromatic look and this chambray top is the perfect way to do it. I love the sporty sneaks with the feminine shoulder details of the top -- super cute, super flirty and comfy -- and I am obsessed with the gray and chambray combo. Perffff!
I LOVE YELLOW AND CHAMBRAY.
Do I need to go any further? Look how pretty and summer this look is!!! <3 <3 <3
Moral of the story -- Chambray is super versatile, will flatter any booty (I mean body hehe) and can literally be worn to the office, out to dinner, with your gfs, picking apples, running errands, (picking apples??? just making sure you were paying attention LOL) or literally just sitting at home being fierce and fabulous like always.
What is your favorite way to wear chambray? Let me know!
