Fashionista NOW: Back To Basics With The Chambray Fashion Trend

Want of a look that spells laid back yet polished in an understated way? Well, there’s chambray!

While some have left the chambray trend behind for good in the 90s, trendsetting and trend-following millennial alike are finding it hard not to sport this back-on-trend look this season. Chambray shirts, blazers and tops are especially high on the list for peeps who like a basic minimalistic spin to their wardrobe.

What is chambray? Is chambray denim?

A resounding no to the second question and to the first: Chambray is a fabric that appears to be denim and yet has none of that heavy and coarse quality of it.

Chambray is primarily made of lightweight cotton fabric comprised of colored thread (usually indigo) and complemented by a bleached horizontal thread.

When to wear chambray?

Due to its lightweight characteristic, chambray is the perfect fabric for spring and summer seasons.

How to wear chambray shirts?

Chambray button-down shirts particularly can be worn casually as a top on its own or used as outerwear to layer over a tank.

If you’d like to bring the retro chambray of the 90s back, you can always grunge it up by wearing a plaid tank and topping it off with a slouchy chambray and complete the look with acid wash jeans that is subtly distressed.

With the signature clean and basic look of a chambray shirt, there’s enormous room for incorporating all sorts of prints and colors which makes the chambray easily a classic basic piece to own that you can dress up or down.
