1 Shirt- 7 ways to style it

Hi Everyone!! So I recently shopped for a few clothing items from the Myntra End of Season sale and got a new chambray shirt too. My old one had become too faded. Though I love it and would wear it still, I need a new one. Good quality Chambray shirts are usually a bit pricey. This is because it is a form of an investment piece so the brands also know that you will be willing to pay.

So when I found one at an amazing discount, I ordered it immediately.

What is a Chambray Shirt?

So for those who do not know, a chambray shirt looks like a denim shirt but is not actually denim. Every girl needs one of these shirts in her closet for the sheer versatility of it. Think of it as a lightweight cotton shirt which looks like denim. You can find these in various light, medium and dark washes. Light & medium wash chambray shirts are the most preferred ones.

So the other Sunday the boy and I went to South Bombay just to take a stroll on the streets in the beautiful weather. I wore my new Chambray shirt to take it out for a spin. This is how I wore it 🙂

I styled my light wash chambray shirt with jeans in a classic blue wash. Accessorized it with a dainty layered necklace worn over the collar and nude sandals.

The makeup was very simple with nothing much on the face and just a bright pink lipstick. I am wearing the Miss Claire lip cream in shade #12.

1.The first way to wear the chambray shirt is like I have worn it in the images above. Denim on denim is one of the most popular ways to wear this shirt. The trick here is to pair it with jeans in a different wash preferably in a darker wash.

2.I have worn my shirt in so many other ways. The image on the left, I have paired it with black & white printed pants. You can go ahead and pair it with any kind of printed pants because this shirt is the ultimate neutral. Instead of going for a plain white or black tee, you can wear this shirt. You can wear a tank top inside like I have or wear the shirt like a top.

3.You can pair your oversized shirt with black leggings. This is my most favourite way of styling this shirt. This is the classic model off duty look and gives off a super casual chic vibe. Just make sure your shirt is long enough to cover your back!! Here I have accessorized it with a leopard scarf.,

4.You can wear it with white jeans/ trouser for the classic summer outfit. This outfit can be worn with a day out with friends, to a movie or anywhere during the day. I have accessorized this look with a white bubble necklace wearing it over the collar.

6.You can layer your chambray over your cami top and wear it as a jacket. This will be the perfect transition to fall outfit.

7.You can layer your shirt over a summer printed dress to make it work for spring. This will add a new element to your look while protecting you from getting cold in the evenings.
