Chambray, easily denim’s partner in crime when it comes to fashion, arrives this spring in new tailored offerings from Topshop: a Preppy Chambray Blazer and Chambray Trouser combo in a light wash — great closet staples for staying cool and looking cool! While this chambray suit set looks fantastic together, we highly recommend mixing it up with your favorite dark and pastel go-to denim. As usual, we’ve taken the liberty of selecting a couple of spring denim must-haves for your consideration.

What are your most relied on staple pieces?

In this edition of Denim Therapy‘s Window Shopper, we take you on a denim smorgasbord on Los Angeles’ Robertson Boulevard, where celebrities, trend-conscious shoppers and hungry paparazzi frequent. Why Robertson? Have you seen the stores on that street? Besides playing host to Lisa Kline and three Kitson boutiques, you can shop at several premium denim brands within one city block without having to stop off at the nearest Starbucks. Denim-driven brands like AllSaints, Paige, 7 For All Mankind, Gap 1969 and True Religion can literally be found within one block. This does not include Intermix, Kitson and Madison, boutiques which carry a fantastic array of designer jeans for men and women in stock all within walking distance. And we say, walking distance in L.A. terms.
