It’s light, it’s easy to wear and it doesn’t wrinkle — yup, I am referring to chambray.

This is seriously the perfect fabric for spring and summer as it can be dressed up, down and it’s a perfect staple for a vacation or work ensemble.

Pair it with printed or colored jeans, some jewelry and sandals and you are set to go. As for the 9-to-5 look, a pair of trousers, a blazer and heels and you will be comfy in the office.

Chambray dresses are also perfect and can even go from day to night with the right accessories. This color pretty much combines with everything and it’s a nice alternative to sun dresses and maxi pleats.

If you live in denim, it’s also easy to combine it and avoid looking like you are sporting a Canadian tuxedo! Just make sure the shirt is slightly different from the jeans (or shorts) and you will have a winning look!

These gals sure know how to rock it.
