20 Style Tips On How To Wear A Chambray Shirt

If I had to pick only a few fashion staples that every girl should have in her closet, a good chambray shirt would be at the top of the list. Chambray shirts are so cute and so versatile. They can be styled so many different ways, and they can also be worn during any season. And let’s not forget about the fact that they are super comfy, especially if you find one made with soft denim.

Personally, I have two chambray shirts that I can’t live without: one in a darker wash, and one in a lighter wash. I would recommend getting both, because they’re so great to have and each will feel fresh in it’s own way. I love the darker wash for fall and winter, while the lighter wash is perfect for spring and summer – but really, they can both be worn whenever.

The best thing about chambray shirts is that they’re usually super affordable. I mean, yeah, you could spend $80 on one at J. Crew, but you could also get a great option at American Eagle, Old Navy, The Gap, H&M… basically anywhere. But what do you do with it after you get one? Here are 20 cute style tips on how to wear a chambray shirt no matter what the weather is like. The trick? Thinking of the denim shirt as a neutral… which it basically is.

 

1. Pair it with any of your brightly colored jeans. It’s a fresh take on denim-on-denim.

3. Don’t be afraid to wear denim-on-denim. My favorite way to do it is to mix light and dark washes instead of just one wash, but either work.

  • Great Post . Would not have thought about Chambray’s versatility. Love how they worked with pants, shorts skirts, bottoms and colored jeans.

    Chambray is not denim. They are completely different fabrics. A Chambray has a different weave and weight.
