3 Ways to Wear: The Chambray Shirt

chambray shirt

We've all seen that classic chambray shirt at some point, especially lately.  It's such a staple piece in anyone's wardrobe - you can dress it up, you can dress it down so easily.  If you were having some difficulties or are just looking for some inspiration, I hope that you'll enjoy this!

Denim on Denim How to Wear the Chambray Shirt
For this outfit, I wanted it to be really casual.  With the denim on denim look, it's always really tricky to avoid looking like a farm girl, so I wanted to make it a bit more modern with the hologram flats.  When I first saw the zebra print scarf, I was just in awe - it was gorgeous.  So I decided to add it to the outfit to make it a bit more colourful, a bit more spring.  The chambray shirt would be tucked in to the light wash jeans and a belt would pull it all together.  I really love how the ensemble has this classic yet a bit modern vibe to it.

Spring's Signature How to Wear the Chambray Shirt

For this outfit, I wanted to have a more put together vibe.  I love how everything compliments each other to create that professional and confident feel.  I really like how a structured pant looks with a low heel, which is why I chose that for this outfit.

This outfit is just a girlier version of the previous outfit in my opinion.  If you don't take into consideration the chambray shirt itself, it really reminds me of something a teenage Carrie Bradshaw would wear.  I love how playful, colourful, and flirty (all full-ish skirts makes an outfit kind of flirty and fun for me) this ensemble is and to me, it's perfect for spring.

1.  H&M Denim Shirt
2.  Urban Outfitters Valley Dreams Round Sunglasses
3.  Forever 21 Opulent Chandelier Earrings
4. Baublebar Gold Chain Necklace
5. BP. Vintage Marble & Rhinestone Ring
6. ModCloth Stripe It Lucky Skirt
7 . ASOS Top Handle Bag With Bar Lock Fitting
8. Sperry Top-Sider Pennington Loafer

So that's that.  I hope you did end up enjoying this and that it helped you out somehow.  Leave me a comment telling me which one was your favourite.
