Chambray: The new button up.

Chambray: a lightweight clothing fabric with colored warp and white filling yarns. Origin: Cambrai, France 1814 

{My definition} The replacement for the white button up. It goes with everything, under everything and over everything. The perfect layering essential. 

My two favorite Chambray shirts out there right now are from Free People & Jcrew. Free People - Road Trip Button Up - $118 @ Jcrew - I heart Chambray Shirt - $69.99 @

My favorite ways to style it are under a bright colored cardigan, over a textured blouse or under a structured blazer. As far as color combinations go…. the sky is the limit! I’m loving the softness and casualness of chambray paired with strong compliments like color and sparkle!

Wear it with bold colors.



Wear it with sequins.
