Hi, Ladies!! Welcome back. We are in full effect this Spring season. Tank tops and t’s will be in heavy rotation. But, one key piece of clothing I love wearing for the Spring and Summer is…Did you guess it? No!! I’ll tell you. The chambray shirt!!!
This wonderful item is a versatile and easy piece to incorporate and style in your wardrobe!! Why?? May you ask?
Well, the chambray shirt is perfect for those cool spring nights or days. A great layering piece. It is also perfect for those muggy and hot days in the summer. The material is so lightweight that it allows your skin to breathe. Chambray resembles denim, which makes it easy to pair with pretty much anything.
It’s a nice alternative to your sleeveless blouse or your go-to t-shirt and changes up your look.
I love this item so much, I decided to share 7 ways to wear chambray for the spring or summer months. It’s a perfect piece to style for the mom on the go, or if you are looking for something casual to wear!!
Outfit #1 Tie chambray shirt around a long fitted dress. Chambray is a light material and perfect for throwing over a tank top or sleeveless dress as pictured below. Tying it in the front gives it a youthful, but mature vibe with a long fitted dress and chic modern sunglasses. I absolutely love these mirrored aviators!! How cute are they?!?! This is a great outfit for a leisurely walk or to run errands!!

Outfit #5 Wear a chambray shirt with a printed skirt. Chambray can act as a neutral so it is easy to pair it with any printed piece of clothing, like this pleated floral dress!! Because the chambray shirt has a collar and is a button down, it gives a more formal and polished feel to the look, making this a great option to wear for work or even to church.
