Chambray and Shirt Dresses!
I have a HUGE soft spot for chambray (a lightweight denim blue cotton) and I am so glad to see it coming back this spring and summer. Another hot trend right now are shirt dresses so I thought I would just combine them both into one blog, since finding shirt dresses in chambray is such a natural combination.
As we go, you'll see styles that are short, to the knee, strapless, sleeveless, waisted and non-waisted. Think about your body shape, the areas you want to highlight and the areas you want to conceal and I know you'll find a style perfect for you. We'll start off with the youngin's this week.
Now for the moms. Again I recommend dresses that hit just above or to the knee or the fabulous shirt/dresses that can be worn over leggings or skinny jeans. (And don't be pulling out those old thick denim jumpers from the 90's thinking you've got this one nailed.) Here are some samples:
And how they can look as an outfit...
I'm sure you are getting the idea by now. Any of these dress or shirt/dress additions will be pieces you will wear over and over again this summer and can always make look different with your layering and accessories. And best of all there is chambray for every age, every style and every body shape.
So get out of your closet blues and add some "chambray blues" to your wardrobe!
Next week we'll be talking about swimsuits. Self tanner and cover ups here we come!
