How To Wear a Chambray Shirt 5 Ways (Fall Season)


Do you own a chambray shirt?  Chambray shirts are one of the most versatile tops because of their color and style.  Being that they look like denim, they are often considered a neutral piece, because they go with so many other pieces in your closet.  The most common style of chambray is a long sleeve button-up shirt with a fold-down collar.  There are other styles of chambray shirts, like sleeveless shirts, short sleeves, collarless, ruffle collar, you name it.

  1. The chambray shirt is a versatile piece and is the most worn item in my closet. I always love how it goes with everything and can be worn for almost any occasion. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us on #shinebloghop this week!

  2. I just recently bought myself a new button down chambray shirt – been looking for one for a little while. A lot of the ones I’ve seen haven’t been just a plain button down that you oculd tuck into stuff. Love the 5 ways you styled it. I’ll definitely need to try out the blazer look for work once the cooler weather starts!

  3. Chambray just makes me happy! I love wearing mine with a pop of color (mustard or burnt orange for fall), but I think I’m going to have to give the pencil skirt a try this fall!
