5 Ways to Wear Chambray

Photo Dec 20, 4 12 26 PMI recently put together 5 looks for Glitter Guide featuring a wardrobe classic every gal needs in her closet—a chambray shirt! Though it’s blue in color, it acts as a neutral in your wardrobe—just like your favorite pair of jeans. I also partnered up with some fellow-minded style gals this week who also found 5 different ways to wear one item. Below are five ways to mix it up and wear your chambray shirt this season—plus links to see how the others styled their pieces!

I prefer a lighter chambray with darker jeans, but anything goes! This works well in the summertime with denim shorts, as well.

Finish it off with a skirt and heels for a casually chic date night look that’s not too fussy.

Layer it under your favorite cozy sweater (it matches everything!) for warmth and style.

If you’re like me and live in a mild climate that isn’t that cold in the winter, try tying it around your waist to freshen up a basic dress.

Don’t have a chambray shirt of your own yet? These are some good ones to check out to start your collection ;)

Now don’t miss the other posts—I loved seeing how everyone styled their items!

    I’m a little obsessed with chambray shirts — but I still don’t feel like I’ve found the perfect one yet. I’m going to have to check out that JCrew one! Also — I blame you for my Madewell addiction. :)
