When you’re a denim lover at heart, you might find the advent of the monsoons a little daunting. No doubt denim is a classic, but it gets heavy and super thick when you’re caught in unexpected showers, something that no one wants. So instead, you’ll be thrilled to know that this time around, you don’t have to ditch denim completely because there is an alternative. That’s right – chambray is here to save the day!

Being one of the latest fashion trends, chambray is a tight cotton weave, similar to denim. However, the difference lies in the plain weave of the fabric, which allows it to be much lighter and smoother than denim. That’s what makes chambray the ideal fabric for summer as well as monsoon fashion. So you’re wondering how to wear the chambray, we’re showing you how.

The most popular way to wear chambray is in the form of a shirt. The greatest quality of chambray is that it works as a neutral. This makes it perfect to wear with a pair of colourful palazzo pants for Sunday brunch and with printed leggings when you’re in a rush. For a muted look, wear yours over black trousers to the workplace.
