The one buzzword I hear as to what will be getting lots of play in wardrobes this spring is: denim! Yes, I know this is nothing new, and yes, I know that denim is a pretty simple basic. What is different this season is that we are seeing more variations on the classic denim/chambray we already know and love. I'm talking embellishments, distressing, different washes, bleaching, patching - you name it, it will be happening. I already have a few DIYs I would like to try! One of the denim basics we can build on is the ever popular chambray top. It is safe to say that a chambray top is a must-have in any wardrobe, but this season, several different types of chambray tops are a must-have as well! Below I have curated my top six favorite styles, all of which deserve their own special place in your closet!
If you own a chambray, odds are its the classic, which is a great starting point. Clean and simple, this will go with anything.
This style of chambray stands out by the way the seams are stitched along the front, and the western style yoke. You can see more detailed photos of this if you click through the link. I also love the button tabs on the side for when you roll up the sleeves, which comes in handy when it gets warmer.
The lace adds a feminine element that pairs so nicely with the chambray. Play it up by pairing with a fun skirt. This style would be an easy DIY.
These look as though the front pocket has been removed, leaving a darker dye showing in it's place. This gives it a patchwork feel, which is going to be one of the big trends in denim this year.
5. Polka Dots
A polka dot printed chambray is fun, and a less severe way to rock the denim-on-denim look, as the print adds depth.
The top equivalent of boyfriend jeans, these have a more generous cut, and fit a bit more slouchy. Great when paired with a colored skinny.
As you can see, not all chambrays are created equal, and there really is no reason to stop at just one! I've just added a polka dot print to my closet, and am excited about acquiring a few more this spring.
