3 Ways to Wear a Chambray Shirt

1/7 ,

Surely by now you have a chambray shirt, right? It’s touted everywhere as a must-have item that’s oh-so-versatile. So how many ways have you found to wear it? There’s simply buttoned and untucked over a pair of shorts, pants, or a skirt. You can open it up and wear it as a top layer like a cardigan. Or my personal favorite, tying it in a knot at the waist a la Gidget with something high-waisted.

Well… been there, done that. In need of some fresh chambray inspiration for fall? Check out these three style bloggers who have new ways to sport this classic piece as the temperature drops.

1. Dress It Up

Your summer beach cover-up just became office appropriate with a lace pencil skirt, sensible heels, a structured handbag, and gold accessories. While the shirt may lean toward denim material, if all your other elements say “fancy office day” you can overpower the casual vibe to pull it off. Thanks to Kileen of Cute and Little for demonstrating this darling look!

This outfit is especially work-appropriate thanks to the lace in the skirt. While denim is casual, lace is dressy, so they’re a wonderful pairing to land somewhere in the middle.

2. Dress It With A Dress

My favorite thing about fall is how layers make for fascinating ensembles that mix colors, patterns, and textures. But I have yet to pull off a button-down beneath a shift dress and Krystin of Suburban Faux Pas does it so perfectly.

The key here is making sure the dress material is thick enough that you can’t see any seams or bunching from the shirt underneath. This look would also be darling with tights and boots once fall turns into winter.

3. Dress It Under

Mara of M Loves M gives us one final spin wearing her chambray as an in-between layer. The blue adds a hint of color to an otherwise neutral outfit, though I confess my favorite part is that bold, poppy lip!

The extra bonus of wearing this shirt open is the elongating effect. Our eye sees the narrow shape in between the chambray, which is even more narrow than her coat, which creates a flattering illusion.
