I’ve been suffering from a very bad cold since the past week and that’s why I have not been active on my social media or even posting blogs. But finally I decided to get up from the bed and post this look that was supposed to go live a long back.
Nothing will give you that immediate rockstar feel like a chambray shirt because it defines “understated cool”. The chambray shirt is one of those statement pieces that can never go wrong and has made sure it is here to stay. Pick white chinos or joggers for bottoms that look like summer and you are set to look effortlessly fashionable. Colours always incite a certain kind of feeling and perhaps blues remind us of the summer days. Or maybe it’s because it’s the easiest colour to match! Whatever it is, blue has been ubiquitous in spring/summer menswear collections.
So here is a look that i have put up for our Face of the Month for June on the blog, Hitesh who happens to be the blog’s official photographer too. He is the man behind for all the beautiful pictures on the blog and one of the reasons for making me look pretty for you all through his pictures. Hehehe
Since, he’s too camera shy, it was kind of difficult for me to convince him to do this shoot for me and a lot more difficult for me to make this tall boy pose for the pictures. But I think we did quite a good job and have come up with this simple casual look using a Chambray Shirt from Wills Lifestyle. We have paired the shirt with denim joggers which according to me is one of the best pieces that any guy can own in his wardrobe. Since it’s a summer look, we went for flip flops instead of shoes, but if you like wearing shoes, go for a nice pair of white sneakers or kicks and you can make this look even more stylish.
If you are not comfortable experimenting with joggers, you can always go for your good old pair of jeans or even white or beige chinos. You can convert this look into a party look by simply pairing them up with chinos and some brogues. Hitesh likes simple and effortless looks, hence he wanted to stick to this minimal look and he thinks this is something the college-goers can definitely try.
I saw this polka dotted chambray shirt at Wills Lifestyle and instantly picked it up for this shoot. They have an amazing Indigo collection and I think you guys should definitely check out their new collection. I have talked about their SS16 collection in my previous post HERE and how their men’s collection truly impressed me.
Chambray has such a cult status because of its off-duty cool vibe, so keep it simple and cool. Do not try and think too hard about how to style this trend. However you decide to wear it, as long as you keep your look simple you will have that rockstar feel, trust me. Chambray is not just about the shirt. Recently, because of its popularity and versatility, it has expanded into the world of suits. The best part is, it’s a versatile item; By investing in some quality pieces, like a heavy feel shirt and a lighter weight one, you will be covered for every season. Wear it under a coat for an extra layer, or wear it open as a coat itself.
