Three easy ways to style a wardrobe staple: the chambray shirt
Layer It With a Cardigan
This is the most effortless way to style a chambray shirt. You can create a variety of looks with these two simple pieces: a chambray shirt and a cardigan. The chambray shirt from Madewell has an oversized boyfriend fit, but is thin enough to layer. The cardigan, also from Madewell, is made of the coziest knit and comes in a ton of colors. You can’t go wrong no matter what color you choose. This effortless combo works well with leggings, denim, or a skirt.
Layer It Over a Striped T-Shirt
Chambray and stripes are a timeless combo that won’t be going out of style any time soon. Get a more western look with this western inspired chambray shirt from the Gap. Pair it with a striped boatneck long sleeve t-shirt, also from the Gap. The styling options for this look are endless: button the shirt up so just a bit of the second layer peeks out. Cuff the sleeves of the chambray shirt for a contrasting look. You can also wear the shirt unbuttoned to show off the second layer.
Mix Denim With Denim
This is quite possibly the most quintessential style for a chambray shirt. You can pair a light denim shirt (Calson for Nordstrom Rack) with dark denim jeans (Parker Slim Jean from NYDJ). You can pair a dark denim shirt (Classic Ex-Boyfriend Shirt from Madewell) with light denim jeans (The Cheeky Straight Jean from Everlane). There’s also the monochromatic option: a dark top with dark bottoms or a light top with light bottoms.
No matter which option you choose, you’re sure to be on-trend and stylish. Go for comfort with leggings or dress things up with a fun skirt.
