Wardrobe Essential: Chambray Shirt

One of my favorite wardrobe essentials is this ultra-soft, collarless, chambray shirt. I love it because it’s light-weight, doesn’t wrinkle, and goes with everything. I like layer it over dark jeans or a dress, almost like I would a jean jacket or cardigan. The light wash looks great against my dark cropped denim pants, not at all like a Canadian tuxedo.  Ha!

But in all seriousness, my chambray shirt has replaced the boring cardigans I usually wear. I mean, I still love a cardigan, but I think a chambray shirt is a fresher choice for spring and summer.

Plus, the are so versatile. Model Mom, Aimee, had a brilliant suggestion to use a denim shirt as a swimsuit coverup. Even better, a chambray shirt can transition from day to night—tuck it into a black pencil skirt, add strappy heels and a statement necklace, and you’ve got an instant night look.
