Perpetual wardrobe: Chambray

What: Chambray is made of cotton or cotton-synthetic blends, chambray is a plain- weave fabric. The warp threads are dyed and the weft threads are left white (as they are for denim).  It is used or making clothing, especially shirts.  * Martha’s Stewarts Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts

 

Wear: One of my very favorite staples because it is so versatile!  See below but there are endless options with this chambray shirt.  Can be paired with so many options from the perpetual wardrobe checklist. Again, I cannot reiterate enough but we want pieces that can transition from date looks to work (while this may be too casual in some work places it will totally work in fun, creative fields!)

Do I need to say more after these pictures?

What: a pop of color bringing attention upward!

I LOVE COLOR.  Be someone in a bold color versus the boring, safe black. Your mood and attitude will change. I promise!

Nothing can beat a bold color!  If you need to- dye it.
