  DENIM UPDATE

Chambray is so versatile and can be styled in many different ways to suit anyone during any season. It is comfortable, soft and lightweight, plus denim and chambray are always on trend for the summer months. The fabulous thing with chambray is that it can actually be worn all year-round if styled in the right way.
Chambray is a fabulous lightweight alternative to denim. The two fabrics are very similar in construction with the coloured yarn in the warp and the white yarn in the weft, however denim is a twill and chambray is a plain weave. Chambray is softer and lighter weight than denim, it has drape and more movement.
Chambray dress
This new relaxed-style summer dress has an easy-fit shape a button-through front and contrast stitching. The shell buttons front fastening allows you to also wear this piece as an over-shirt.

Chambray trousers

A lighter-weight alternative to a staple pair of jeans, these unlined pull-on trousers have the same contrast stitch as the chambray dress adding a great little feature to an otherwise plain staple item.
Caring for your chambray  To keep your chambray looking its best, wash your garments on a cool setting. To insure your chambray does not loose shape, hang dry your items or dry on a clotheshorse. Iron on a low heat to avoiding damaging the fabric.
