Calling all trendsetters! The latest and greatest in fashion trends has arrived and its all about chambray!
When I saw Olivia Palermo rocking this look recently I knew that it was going to be something that will be featuring in stores and peoples wardrobes pretty soon!
For those of you that haven't come across it before, chambray is a type of fine, lightweight fabric woven with white threads across a coloured warp. In other words- it’s a super flattering fabric produced in a variety of colours that is great to wear in summer.
This brings me back to lovely Olivia Palermo's chambray look. Now to me this looks as though its double denim- but I assure you it isn’t. The chambray look is much more sophisticated, light and trendy! Most of you would have seen this material used for shirts; however Miss Palermo pulls this look off perfectly with the combined chambray shirt and skirt.
Chambray style shirts are also perfect for that casual street style look. Paired with denim shorts or leather pants, these shirts are so versatile and can be dressed up or down. For extra impact wear a chambray shirt with multiple light and dark denim tones. This provides an amazing contrast in colours. What’s good about this style of shirt is that the arm lengths can be rolled up or left down which means you can change from that office look to casual style.
Check out Rihanna rocking the rolled up sleeves with her chambray shirt below. She’s gone for the double denim style look- and has definitely pulled it off well.
For an even more casual style you could go for the chambray shirt in a light blue, paired with the same style in shorts, some comfy sneakers (Converses or even Isabel Marants) and a large folded clutch bag such as the one in this image below. Such a great look for coffee with friends or a lazy Sunday out and about!
Ciao for now!
