cham·bray |ˈ sh amˌbrā; -brē|
a linen-finished gingham cloth with a white weft and a colored warp, producing a mottled appearance.
Shirts, fashion tops, dresses, jackets, even rompers, skirts and trousers. It comes in different colours, too. Red, Black, Grey, and several shades of Blue — from deep indigos to faded light blue — yes, especially popular in Blue.
Often bears a resemblance to a denim shirt, rightly so, since the latter is usually made out of “a fine, lightweight fabric woven with white threads accross a colored warp,” only made out to appear denim-like. Makes more sense really since it would be more practical and, not to mention, more comfortable to wear something light for your top than the actual textile used on jeans. The idea of wearing that in a tropical climate makes me feel claustrophobic and sweaty for some reason.

Explore different looks with the Chambray. Preppy, with the buttoned up shirt and cardi; Boho, with maxis and flat thongs; Urban tough, with long-sleeved shirts and leather pants; Or mix it with trends by adding military inspired pieces and wear ‘em with boots. Style options are quite endless, come to think of it. Chambray is quite a versatile element which will make a look interesting when done right. However, it goes well with just about anything. Just be careful not to go putting something together which would end up like you wanted to wear everything in your closet in one outfit. I’ve seen that happen once too many.
