The Reason Chambray Is Trending? It’s Like Denim, But Better

Chambray has a real talent for working with everything in your spring wardrobe.

Denim is great and all, but there’s another fabric I think is just as deserving of being a spring wardrobe go-to: chambray. The soft, light fabric actually has a lot in common with denim — especially in regards to how it looks and wears —but with this major plus: no breaking-in period required. Slip into a pair of chambray pants or a button-up and they’ll fit and feel like you’ve owned them for years. 

Chambray’s most breathtaking talent, though, at least in my opinion, is that it works with everything. Really. Pair an indigo chambray top with classic-fit jeans one day. Team a soft-wash chambray jumpsuit with statement earrings and heels the next. Whatever pairing you choose, you’ll strike the perfect balance of being classically casual and on-trend, as the collection of dresses, skirts, pants, and tops ahead proves.
