the chambray shirt

Be sure to add a chambray shirt to the very top of your shopping list for Fall. This a huge trend for both men and women for Fall {a post on Fall trends for men coming soon}, and a practical one at that. Chambray is a light-weight denim material that is as practical as a pair of jeans, in terms of versatility. Pair a chambray blouse with any colored or patterned bottom, wear it tucked in, untucked or belted, layer it under a cardigan, jacket, blazer or sweater. The possibilities are endless, and you will wonder how you ever lived without one!
A few guidelines when shopping for a chambray top :: Look for a fitted version, making sure that the shirt tapers in a bit at the waist and that the arms are comfortably fitted, and not too baggy. If you already own a solid chambray top, consider purchasing one with a pattern, such as polkadots, or one in a different shade chambray.  Owning more than one chambray shirt, is smart, not excessive, in my book!

And, you’ll be happy to note that you can easily start wearing your chambray shirts now, as a perfect transitional piece for Fall. In warm temps, pair chambray with shorts and skirts, and simply cuff the sleeves. It can also make for a super-cute swim cover-up!

I scoured the web, and here are my top picks for chambray shirts, all under $100, and several under $30!
