If you haven’t received the memo, a chambray shirtis one of the coolest must-have shirts for the summer. Though it makes more of a statement than your average white shirt, a chambray is surprisingly versatile. Here are some tips to style this trendy summer shirt.
Rock the Tuxedo: Some call it the Tuxedo, but it is all about matching denim on denim for an ensemble that is effortlessly edgy. But before you throw on your favorite pair of skinnies, make sure your jeans and chambray are two different shades. There’s a fine line between “effortlessly edgy” and kind of looks akward. For a finishing touch, add a red lip and toss your hair into a messy bun.
Keep it chic with black jeans: Keep your ensemble polished with a simple pair of black jeans. The contrast of the light blue and the black prevents a denim-on-denim disaster. For a dash of pizzazz, add a statement necklace or a trendy pair of shoes.
Pair with printed pants: A favorite among most style trailblazers, this ensemble requires loads of confidence. The poppy print coupled with the attention-grabbing denim is courageous and stylish at the same time. Since this duo commands enough attention for one outfit, finish this look with a simple pair of flats and dainty jewelry.
Add a pop of color: A chambray top plus bold colored jeans equals sartorial bliss. Since this outfit is packed with color, complete this look with basic ballet flats. Whether you opt for a pair of orange pants or bordeaux jeans, this outfit is summer-approved.
Look polished with a skirt: Trendy maidenslove chambray shirts in pretty feminine colors like pink. They pair the trendy itemwith a flirty floral skirt, or keep it classy with an A-line skirt. Alternatively, what better way to unleash your inner lady by prancing around in a playful tulle skirt and trendy heels.
Boho chic with a maxi skirt: Take a fashion note from some celebs and choose the boho era for inspiration. Style your trusty denim shirt with a maxi skirt. But won’t all that fabric make you look like you don’t have a figure? Accentuate your waist by knotting your chambray. Maxi skirts in cottons and silks are suitable for the summer, and don’t forget your fabulous brightly coloredsummer sandals.
Layer up: Since layering is always a style do, don a light sweater over your chambray. The preppy look is all the rage among fashion’s finest; however, incorporating your chambray will set you apart from the rest. If you want this part of your getup to stand out, pair your top with simple skinny jeans and ballet flats.
Bring on the graphics: If you’re not a fan of patterned jeans, but still want to add a fun print to your outfit, pair your chambray with a graphic tee. Then, spice up your chic ensemble with some stellar accessories like a colorful necklace or patterned scarf for a quirky, yet comfy appearance.
Pretty in a pencil skirt:When styled correctly, you can wear your chambray to an office meeting. Though the denim top may scream “too cool for the office,” pairing it with a tailored pencil skirt offers a polished twist. Pencil skirts in loud leopard print or bold red add a sassy edge to your ordinary chambray shirt. Complete your style with comfortable heels and a statement necklace, and you will look so fantastic.
