In case you haven’t heard, I love chambray. I love chambray shirts, chambray dresses and I always scour for other chambray pieces when thrifting. Chambray can be worn a million ways yet some of us still don’t embrace Chambray’s full style power. This madness needs to end and it needs to end now! Wear your chambray. Here’s a few ideas according to style personalities, in case that helps motivate and renew your chambray love.
I’m starting with the Boho Style Personality because it is the least likely, according to my opinion scientific research, to readily wear chambray. But there are plenty of options to keep a boho vibe while wearing your chambray…
Boho Style Personalities may prefer a lighter, distressed or vintage-wash chambray with a looser relaxed fit. I gave a go at a boho chambray look all in the name of research…
The Classic Style Personality may wonder if chambray is classy enough for her wardrobe. Let me reassure you, it is!
Classic Style Personalities may prefer a darker wash chambray with a tailored fit. Here’s my take on classic chambray….
Black Out Style January was all about the Colourful Style Personality and chambray is the perfect neutral equalizer to all your colourful pieces!
And my latest colourful look (my happy place)…
Preppy style is defined by pastels, monograms and, more recently, sparkly necklaces with sweaters and collared shirts. J Crew is the epitome of preppy and though I would never claim to be a “prep” (at least since grade 7), I don’t mind a preppy chambray look!
Preppy can be colourful but it leans more towards whites, neutrals and pastels. Everything is crisp, clean and J Crew! Here’s my attempt at chambray prep…
No matter what your style personality, chambray will work for you!
1 is my fave.
With the black. Definitely black 😉
The pastel look is very good on you. For the record I did wear the boho maxi skirt look once…however the new looks you posted are inspiring U0001f600U0001f352
I like the classic style chambray! Black and chambray look so good together! I like the way you included the inspiration pictures, and then your look. I appreciate the extra time, effort and work to do this, but it really shows how you can work the inspiration look to make it your own with the pieces you own. This encourages us to do likewise. Thanks for inspiring us!
