How to Wear: Chambray

C

hambray shirts are possibly the most comfortable and versatile of the shirts that you own, aside from the plain white v-neck, of course. This is one of those wardrobe basics that can be taken from office to brunch to a PTA meeting. But perhaps you aren’t sure how to wear your chambray shirt. You bought it because it looked great in a magazine, but don’t know how it pairs with other items you already own. At Daily Mom, we always aim to make your life as simple as possible, so we’ve brought to you 4 ways to wear chambray.

  • Top it with a statement necklace! Pairing your chambray shirt with a statement necklace, black pencil skirt and low heels make it work appropriate. This is a very pulled together look that does not require much planning or extra accessorizing.(If you don’t have a chambray shirt yet, consider this one paired with these heels.)

  • Tie a patterned silk scarf under the collar. We love this pretty scarf of Van Gogh’s “Irises.” Tuck your chambray shirt into a pair of khaki trousers and shod your feet with pretty neon flats and you will look like the super mom you are at the next parent-teacher conference or school play.

  • Looking for a weekend chic way to wear your chambray shirt? Put a patterned knit poncho or draping cardigan atop and dark wash skinny jeans below. Finish the look with ankle booties and wrist cuffs. These ankle booties by Steve Madden are gorgeous and incredibly comfortable.

  • Double up! Funky collars are very on trend right now and the perfect way to wear your chambray. Wear a bright, sleeveless button up in a light material under your chambray so that the bright collar pops over the top of your chambray collar. Finishing touches are leather shorts (like this pair by Doublju) for a bit of edge and comfy brogues in a neutral color. Who knew your chambray could be so rocker-chic?
