When I studied for the SATs in high school, I LOVED analogies.
I know…nerd alert.
So, here’s an analogy for you.
Chambray Shirt : Easy :: Calculus : Difficult
Okay, not my best effort, but you get the idea. Webster defines chambray as “a fine lightweight fabric woven with white threads across a colored warp”. I would define it as a “very soft, lighter denim”.
A chambray shirt is/should be a key staple in your wardrobe. It is incredibly versatile. In other words, it’s the new white button-up shirt.
It looks great with jeans. Consider it a “classy Canadian tuxedo”.
It can be worn over a maxi dress and tied at the waist. Perfect for taking those summer dresses into fall.
It looks amazing with corduroy.
It can also be worn with metallics.
It can be worn long and belted over a strapless dress or skirt.
It dresses down a fancy, sequin skirt.
It can be worn with any color skinny jeans.
So, did I convince you how awesome the chambray shirt is and how much you need one?
If you don’t have one yet, now’s the perfect time to ask for one for Christmas.
