Chambray is a lightweight denim fabric which is perfect for spring. (When IS Spring coming btw? I am ready for flowers, not more piles of dirty NY snow.) There is a lot of this soft often light colored denim out there these days, with a bunch of it shown for spring. I am a little confused about the “double denim” trend however. Alexa and Pixie look cute here, but don’t think I’ll be following this trend any time soon:
Because it still reminds me of this:
Poor Matt Damon stepping out in his “Canadian Tuxedo” (no offense to Canadians, I mean some of my best friends are Canadian yada yada).
And then there is this lovely photo of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, remember this little fashion misstep??
Here are my favorite Chambray pieces for sale right now. Wear them separately, or if you really like the “double denim” trend then make sure to do what Alexa and Pixie have done and wear a dark color with a light, rather than all dark or all light. I really love the Helmut Lang shirt because it has a panel of black fabric in the back…
And look at this cute Old Navy dress for only $29!
For this little denim outfit, Carmindy suggests a sheer stain for the lips. This one in “Cherry” from Bath and Body works will do just fine:
