Chambray Every Day: How to Style It for Every Season


 

Who doesn't like a good chambray? It seems like anywhere you look, chambray is the common denominator in a variety of outfits. Its versatility makes it a must-have closet staple for every fashionista. It goes with pretty much anything and can be worn in all seasons.

In case you were wondering, chambray is a lightweight, plain-weave cloth initially made of linen but later applied to cotton and even silk. It's typically blue, but can come in any color.

What's the difference between chambray and denim, you ask? Actually, there are a lot more similarities than differences. But if you want to get technical, the difference is in the weave. While chambray uses a plain-weave pattern, denim uses a twill pattern.

The easy way to tell is by looking on the underside of each fabric. While you will notice a much lighter color on the underside of denim, the chambray's underside color is very similar to its front. Maybe this is a little too much information, but now you know.

I'm sharing below some typical and not-so-typical ways to style chambray in every season.
