In some circles, chambray is a dirty word. For those running in said circles, chambray conjures up bad nineties fashion flashbacks. Think old school 90210...I, personally, had a chambray tank that I rocked so much it literally fell apart. It just went so perfectly with my floral denim shorts. Remember those bad boys? Haha!
Although chambray can go bad fast, it doesn’t have to. In fact, it can be quite chic. Just ask the designers behind Rebecca Taylor, Paul & Joe and Balenciaga to name a few. They all sent gorgeous chambray pieces down their spring 2013 runways.
If you pay attention to the fashion blog set, you’ve probably noticed that the chambray shirt has become a major part of their repertoire. From tutus to sparkles, top style bloggers have dressed up the chambray shirt every which way you can imagine.
For us moms, those looks might not always be the most realistic. While I would love to flit around in a Carrie Bradshaw worthy tutu, it’s not happening on the regular. Luckily for us, there are plenty of ways to style chambray out there and a chambray shirt isn’t the only piece that would make your spring wardrobe stand out! Not that I want you to give up on adding a classic chambray shirt to your closet. They’re ridiculously comfortable and one with a print like polka dots really ups the fun factor!
