The Chambray Shirt: A Wardrobe Must Have…

The Fashion Bug’s Story: A chambray shirt is a must for every woman’s closet. I would argue that itis an item that suits every skin tone…and it is also provides an easy start for a stylish outfit. Find a good one and you can carry it over from season to season  – not such a surprise as the Chambray fabric is thought to have originated from Cambrai in France as far back as 1595. So clearly it has stood the test of time. I love a chambray shirt because it looks so fresh and you can literally wear it with anything. Leather trousers? Yup. Maxi skirt on the beach? Indeed. Mini skirt when going out? Absolutely. I bet you I could take out anything from my wardrobe and I would find a way to stylishly team it with a chambray shirt. If you don’t yet have one, go and get one.

The Fashion Bug’s Tips: Personally I prefer a slightly oversized version. Check out lovely styles from Ralph Lauren, J.Crew and Frame Denim. And for a really glamourous version go for fully embellished with Sonia Rykiel.
