chambray.

Today, I’m sharing the one clothing item that I’ve been majorly obsessing over and coveting lately.  It’s not anything out of the ordinary.  In fact, odds are you already own one yourself!  What item am I talking about, you ask?  Why, a chambray shirt, of course!  Like I said, it’s not super fashion-forward or anything that’s hard to come by (quite the contrary actually, it’s literally everywhere!).

To put it simply, chambray shirts are currently on my radar, and in a major way.  I love how they can be dressed up or down, styled preppy or oh-so laid back.  Throw on a bedazzled necklace or scarf, add a pop of color via colored jeans or a bright cross-body bag, or wear it as is.  The chambray shirt may just be the most versatile wardrobe essential yet.  #moveoverwhitetee  My favorite inspiration for styling chambray shirts stems from none other than Madewell.  All the models always look so cool and so effortless wearing their chambray and now I want in on all the fun!  

Chambray #1
While scouring the web for the perfect chambray shirt, I found this one by Acne at NET-A-PORTER.  It’s way out of my budget and is technically denim, but nonetheless, I love the faded wash – it’s so different than anything you’d find in my closet.  

Chambray #2
Chambray-shirt-number-two is by Band of Outsiders (another splurge-worthy option) and errs more on the traditional side.  It’s a good, all-around cotton-chambray shirt that has that borrowed-from-the-boys feel to it.

Chambray #3
Last, but certainly not least, I wanted to spotlight J.Crew’s classic popover chambray shirt.  It’s effortless and as the description online reads, it’s “what to wear when you don’t have anything to wear.”  That just about sums it up for me – another winner that involves little to no styling.  Score.
Once I buy my first chambray shirt (eek!  I’m way too excited!), stay tuned to see how I style it + lots of outfit inspiration along the way.
