Trend Watch: Chambray

        Fantastic!!  Chambray shirts are back for Spring this year!!  I love it when a trend holds on for more than one season.  But this one is really a classic: think Ralph Lauren and the 80s!  Denim tops are an omnipresent force in fashion.  A button-down chambray or denim shirt is a chic way to blend different  trends with ease and little expense.  Mixing a chambray shirt now with work wear or casual is a great way to update the basics already in your closet.  The look melds the Southwestern and ladylike trends effortlessly.  Try these on for size:

a mix of formal and casual,

leopard, stripes, & chambray,

wide belt and white boot-legs,

peeking out of a sweater with an orange pencil skirt,

choices galore...

unexpected with gold sequins (more blurring of the formal & casual), 

great casual work look,


chambray & white lace.

Simplicity at work!  Shop Your Closet: black blazer, chambray, and khaki pants.

If you are looking for versatile item to help you transition from Winter to Spring this top is a great choice.  It can be cozy now under a sweater and then fun with the sleeves rolled up for the warmer months ahead.  Many Spring lines are featuring fun day dresses and skirts in chambray as well.
