Make Mine Chambray: Classic Button-Down Denim Shirt Hot!
You don't have to be a true fashionista like Alexa Chung to know that a chambray shirt is hot stuff for Fall 2012.
Most of us know it as a classic denim shirt. The chambray means it's from washed denim---nice, soft, and very comfortable. And the look is getting a head-start this summer. The tomboy denim work shirt is all over the place---on models, actresses, and on the street.
You can dress the chambray shirt up or down---with leather, skinny jeans, skirts, even over your bikini.
Here are a couple we hunted down:
1. The Long-Sleeve Chambray Shirt by Land's End ($50, at LandsEnd). A great classic in light indigo chambray. Sizes XXS - L. Lightweight. Adjustable cuffs. Pockets.
2. Chambray Western Shirt by American Eagle Outfitters (%39.95, at AmericanEagle). In blue with 2 button-flap chest pockets, in soft chambray cotton. With a traditional shirt-tail hem.
These are good, strong shirts in a lightweight chambray fabric. Worth the cost. And great to slip into Fall.
