Show Me, Style Me: The Art of Chambray

It’s no secret I absolutely love and adore chambray.  It screams classic, vintage style.  It’s soft and lightweight.  It can be dressed up or down and it’s a perfect addition to your wardrobe.   Chambray has a long history and one that’s synonymous with World War II and as a workman’s uniform.  In centuries past, the lightweight fabric was used for undergarments, handkerchiefs, children’s clothing and other accessories and frills.  Although we normally see it in various shades of blue, it can be modified to be white, red, pink and green.  There are so many options!  I’d love to see more plus size items made using the fabric (ie – blazers, wide leg pants, skirts – hint hint….).

Today it’s versatile and well-worn with denim (Note: the weave of chambray is different than that of denim so while there is a similar look the fabric structure is different), whites and prints.   Let’s take a look at 9 chambray shirts and 2 dresses.

1. American Rag Studded Shirt 2.  Belle Du Jour Long Sleeve Shirt  3.  DKNY Jeans Roll Tab Shirt  4.  Eileen Fisher Roll Sleeve Shirt  5.  eSkakti Corset-Style Dress  6.  Forever 21 Studded Shirt  7.  Lands End Shirt Dress  8.  Lands End Empire Waist Tunic  9.  Lands End Rounded Hem Shirt  10.  Sejour Split Neck Dark Wash Shirt 11.  StyleCo Three Quarter Sleeve Shirt

Are you a fan of chambray? How would you pair your chambray shirt?   Will you wear chambray and denim together?  What other plus items would you like to see made with chambray?
