It’s really true what they say about what goes around, comes around!
Some of us may or may not be old enough to remember (hey, I’m not sayin’ one way or another) the blue chambray shirt craze of the 1990s . Funny though, back then I think they were called “denim shirts” or “work shirts,” but this go-round they are called “chambray shirts.” That’s a little more sophisticated, I suppose. For the uninitiated, chambray is pronounced SHAM-BREY, as in, you know that show, “The Bachelor?” That is almost certainly a big sham (bray). (Yes, I still watch it. Sad. I know. But, really! What is up with that Tierra girl?)
Anywho! Back to the ooh la la chambray shirts! They are trending! Right now! All over Pinterest! Have you noticed? Actually, I really love these shirts; they are casual and comfy when paired with colored or white jeans, but they can be dressy and adorable when paired with a chevron or polka dot skirt. So cute, guys! Here are just a few of the tons of different chambray shirt looks I found on Pinterest:
