Fall Fashion: The Search for Chambray Perfection

August 2, 2011

What’s calling my name this fall? The same that’s been on my mind aaaalllllllll summer long! A chambray shirt. Mmmm, delicious! Know what it is? Let’s say it’s kind of like a denim shirt but a little softer and more feminine. OK, maybe that’s not the best description. Just pick a denim shirt and call it ‘chambray’ and you’re totally stylin’! Lol, at least that’s waht this gal is saying.

I love its versitility, like you can do the denim on denim thing like this like we saw on Pretty Shiny Sparkly


Or, you can tuck it in for a glam look like Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere did (and ps: she’s totally wearing the J. Crew one I’m coveting, $78)…


So many options, right? Still on the hunt, though I did recently pick up a great v-neck ‘chambray’ tee on clearance at Old Navy that you might have spied in yesterday’s outfit post. I tried on the O.N. chambray button-down but it wasn’t working for me; oddly it was too tight in the chest (and let me tell you, I never have that problem if you know what I mean! hah). Plan to check out Gap, Madewell, Lulu’s and Modcloth online before just giving in to the J. Crew one. Best to get it after I receive my monthly catalogue, usually stuffed wtih a lovely 20 percent off coupon.

So what do you think, it this a look you wear or plan to wear this Fall?

    I am always on the look out for the perfect Chambray. I love Kristina’s…it looks so soft and I have had this thing for lighter blues lately! I have been coveting the blue menswear shirts that MK and Ashley Olsen have been sporting. I found a similar one at Old Navy that I picked up! Love these kind of posts!

    I SEARCHED for the perfect chambray shirt. I mean I checked everywhere, and although jcrew had a great one online, I just couldn’t pay the $ for it. And on an outlet shopping trip I found out why. I got the perfect chambray shirt from the GAP outlet a few weeks ago for $16. YES!!! I consider it a score :) and I will be wearing it lots this fall! both of these gal’s outfits are great inspiration!

    Can you believe I still don’t own a chambray top? I can’t! Kristina does it so beautifully. My friend, Rochelle, at http://rochelleapproved.tumblr.com also wears chambray tops so well! I’m jealous and will for sure need to hop on this trend in the fall!
