How to Wear a Chambray Shirt Eight Ways

October 22, 2018

A lot of people ask about my most worn denim in my closet… enter the chambray shirt. It’s technically denim, just a lighter weight fabric and worn on top instead of the bottom 😉 And just like jeans the chambray shirt is super versatile. So versatile, in fact, that the Motherchic team members are each showcasing their take on how to wear a chambray shirt. Tie it, tuck it, even layer it under leather. No matter your style there is way to wear chambray in this post for you.

How to Wear a Chambray Shirt Over a Jumpsuit

Give your jumpsuit new life and a casual twist by popping on chambray top. For me this is the perfect casual Friday look.

How to Wear a Chambray Shirt Tied over a Dress

Whether it is flow-y or slim a chambray top is the perfect way to break up a patterned dress. Not only does it extend the life your sleeveless summer dresses but also adds a touch of waist definition.

How to Wear a Chambray Shirt Paired with a Jogger

Disguise the “I woke up like this” look with a quick swap of your pajama shirt with a chambray top. This comfortable look still has the pulled together feel, so you can get out of the bus line without feeling like your still in your PJs.

How to Wear a  Chambray with a Skirt

A plaid skirt and tall booties is family photo ready with the addition of the chambray top. Also denim and plaid is the perfect combination.

Layer it with Leather Jacket

Add a “cool” factor by layering a faux suede jacket over an all denim look. The perfect look to check out that beer garden this weekend.

    I love the chambray shirt with the pockets that is shown paired with the leather jacket but when I click on that it, it shows as a J.crew tunic chambray with regular pockets, not flap pockets like shown in your post. Do you have a link that shows the specific chambray shirt with the flap pockets?

      Hi Jessica! Abbys chambray top is a few years old. It is from J.Crew so we linked a similar one! Hope that helps!
