One of the most recommended closet staples is the chambray shirt. Even though it “goes with everything”, I still struggle to build outfits with this material. I’m not the only one; search on Pinterest and there are endless how-to guides.
Not all chambray is created equal. I recommend purchasing yours in-store so you can feel the weight of the fabric and try it on.
One of my biggest hangups with the chambray shirt is the super thick material. I already have an athletic build, so I don’t need the extra bulk. That’s why I love this blouse. It’s the perfect weight and super soft like a worn in tee. Sleeveless works for all seasons. In the fall, I can wear it under a pullover sweater without bunchy sleeves.
Once you’ve mastered your fabric options, you’ll need to assess the color and fit. I once bought a chambray that was all wrong. It was super over-sized and boxy. I wore it a couple of times, and decided that it wasn’t going to work out. Lesson learned: buy a chambray that works with your frame. Be super careful with the length and fit and take note of the buttons. My shirt had contrasting white buttons, which was great for the warmer months but not so great for fall.
Wear Your Chambray…
- With white denim or a red pant. Such a classic look and it works for most occasions. 🇺🇸
- Under a pullover sweater
- Over your favorite tee, cami, or dress
- Wrapped around your waist for a casual cool look
- Tucked into a skirt
- Un-tucked with a body con skirt
- With your favorite leggings
- Denim on denim 🇨🇦
Both pieces in this look are from the Who What Wear (Target collection), which is super stylish and affordable. You can see the first WWW piece in last week’s look. The green pleated midi skirt is on-trend and perfect in length.
