Fashion Friday: How to Style a Chambray Shirt

I finally bought the perfect chambray shirt!  It's about freaking time.  I got a really bad wannabe chambray from Banana Republic that never quite fit the bill.  It's cute and all, but just wasn't what I had in mind.  So, I bit the bullet and got the perfect J. Crew "Keeper Chambray Shirt."  It's darling and fits like a glove.  Keeper is right. In an effort to avoid the Canadian tuxedo (I'm talking to you, Jay Leno), I pulled together a few styling ideas.  Here are some rules to keep in mind...

If you're wearing denim on denim, pair a light wash with a dark wash to break things up.  Chambray looks great layered on the top or bottom, so have a little fun.  Don't be afraid to dress up chambray with a sequin skirt, classic blazer or piles of jewelry.  When in doubt, throw on white shorts or white jeans and go!
