One Chambray Blouse, Three Ways

chambray shirt three ways to wear it

We fell in love with this Land’s End chambray top while looking for cool scoop-neck shirts. It looks so summery and light — the perfect alternative to the typical button-down chambray shirt. Chambray is basically perfect. Think about it: You wear your jeans with everything, right? And chambray’s just a softer variation on denim, so you can wear it all the damn time. After the jump, three looks that pair perfectly with this cute lil’ chambray shirt. Keep reading »

“I could really use your advice about this pair of velvet Levi’s that I bought. I have been a jeans-only girl my entire life, so the last time I was at the mall I decided to be a little adventurous and went ahead and bought these pants without any thought as to how I might style them. Now I’m stuck! Thus far, I’ve only been able to awkwardly pair them with a white striped shirt! I could really use suggestions for not only tops, but shoes as well. I hope this doesn’t pose too difficult of a challenge!” – Deepa

Deepa, you are a braver woman than I — I am perennially scared of velvet, mostly because it brings up terrible nightmares of the purple crushed-velvet dress with batwing sleeves I wore to my 8th grade dance. Nightmares! But these velvet pants? They’re pretty damn cute. The thing with velvet is you’ve got to be careful not to pair it with a fabric that’s too weak or flimsy. Otherwise, the pants will completely outshine the shirt. That’s why we’d opt for a chambray button down — it’s got enough heft to it that your outfit will feel balanced. As for shoes, absolutely do not wear the shoes pictured with the pants — those nude platforms will only make your legs look stumpy in velvet jeans. Instead, opt for a low heeled bootie — check out the items we’ve picked out for you, after the jump! Keep reading »

Must Haves: 10 Sweet Chambray Pieces

Chambray is like denim’s svelte, attractive cousin — a better clothing companion in the warm months than a pair of bulky jeans. And, chambray translates well as a great fabric for shirts, rompers, skirts and more. It’s breathable, lightweight and looks super good against tan skin. Try these 10 chambray pieces on for size.

Shopping Guide: 11 Denim And Chambray Dresses, Skirts & Tops

Can a gal ever have too much chambray and denim? I think not, especially since the fabrics are used for much more than jackets, jeans, and shorts! Behold these 11 spring-appropriate denim and chambray dresses, skirts, and blouses!

Would You Wear This Levi’s Denim Onesie?

The outfit in the photo above appears to consist of a shirt and jeans, but, in actuality, it’s Levi’s Double Denim Onesie. This one-piece has a chambray shirt attached to a pair of straight-fit jeans and takes all the guesswork out of getting dressed … for at least one day a week. But wouldn’t it be much easier to get dressed if you simply owned a chambray shirt, which could go with skirts and other pants, and a pair of perfectly fitting jeans, which you could wear with other tops? Not to mention there are much cheaper ways to get the denim-on-denim look of this onesie that costs $194. I love one-pieces and jumpsuits as much as the next person, but the point of those garments is to look like one piece, not the lazy person’s uniform. Would you wear Levi’s denim onesie?

Skip The Jacket & Opt For A Button-Down Like Sienna Miller

You might have thrown your coat in the closet as soon as the temperature went above 50 degrees, but it’s still not exactly warm outside. We don’t want you to get a cold, so if you absolutely refuse to wear a jacket, make like Sienna Miller and throw a button-down on top of whatever you’re wearing as a sort of non-coat outer layer. (We’re totally feeling the chambray, but an oxford or plaid shirt would work, too.) Just make sure to pick one that’s a little more tailored so you don’t look like you’re stuck in the ’90s, on your way to a Nirvana concert. Keep reading »
