How to Wear a Chambray Shirt – 9 Chambray Shirt Outfits

May 27, 2020

I LOVE my chambray shirt! My wear of it has actually increased since being pregnant which I wasn’t sure was possible. I included it in my capsule wardrobe series and shared 4 ways to style it then. I also included it in my post about what to wear when you don’t know what to wear. It’s such a wardrobe staple! Today I am rounding up all my ideas on how to wear a chambray shirt including 9 chambray shirt outfits. Read on for all the chambray shirt outfit ideas!

My Favorite Affordable Chambray Shirt

When it comes to what chambray shirt to buy, honestly you cannot go wrong with anything. My favorite, super affordable one is from Old Navy. I first bought the darker of the two options and wore it for two years. I recently added the lighter one too because it’s just such a great basic worn SO much in wardrobe. I am wearing one of them in all the pictures below except the short sleeve one.

This post is all about how to wear a chambray shirt - our favorite closet staple! I'm including 9 chambray shirt outfit ideas including options for all seasons!

Double Denim

Who doesn’t love double denim or the gold old Canadian tuxedo?! This is probably the most classic way to wear a denim shirt, and it’s always a good idea!

Pair Your Chambray Top with Colored Jeans

When trying to decide how to wear a chambray shirt, you can always pair it with one of your colored jean options like white or black for a contrast to the denim. As evidenced by the photos below, it is one of my favorite and easy chambray shirt outfit ideas. These looks are all so simple and would be great as part of a capsule wardrobe.

Open Over a Dress

Similar to the picture below, you can maximize your summer dresses by adding a chambray shirt open over them.

One of my favorite ways to maximize my closet is to add a chambray shirt over a dress in the spring or summer. It's a light and easy layer! Read on for more tips on how to style a chambray shirt.

Tie Chambray Shirt Over Dress

In a closet rut? Button your chambray shirt just a couple buttons and tie it over a dress this summer! It gives a whole new look to your favorite dresses. They can be fitted but don’t have to be! It’s a great way to define your waist with a non-fitted dress too.

Tie Your Chambray Shirt Around Your Waits with a Dress

I love tying a chambray shirt around my waist with a dress to add a little more coverage. It’s especially nice when you have a more fitted dress and want some coverage without adding heat in the summer.

    I love how versatile this is. And you can wear it casual but also dress it up without going over the top. It is a truly gorgeous and chic style. 🙂
