The Chambray Shirt

One Shirt, Infinite Possibilities

For those of you who have yet to purchase a chambray shirt, it’s time! This single piece of clothing is one of the most versatile items you will ever own. From work to weekend, casual to dressed up, on it’s own, as a jacket or layered, this shirt’s ability to transform is beyond impressive.

We put together a dozen looks to copy any time, any where. But to be honest 12 looks doesn’t even begin to showcase the overall styling versatility.

A chambray/denim shirt on it’s own is as easy as it comes. No matter if you like a oversized shirt or fitted shirt, you’ll never go wrong with a chambray shirt.

We love to layer! Under a sweater or sweat shirt, open or pullover, a chambray shirt is a must have in every gal’s closet.

We have a very casual vibe here in the OC. Pairing your “dressed up” items back to denim is a great way to get the best of both worlds.
