One of my favorite articles of clothing in my wardrobe is my chambray shirt. You may call it a denim or utility shirt, but they all mean the same thing- a perfect shirt that can be worn with almost anything! Chambray shirts come in tons of colors, styles and sleeve length and are probably one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own. If you don’t have one already, I encourage you to get one as soon as possible! Theres a chambray shirt for every budget and it’s a purchase you won’t regret making. You will love the many looks you can put together with such a simple addition to your closet.



1. With Colored Pants

Whether it’s a brightly colored pant, or a more toned down version, pants in non-traditional colors can be hard to style. A chambray shirt will make it easy, especially with a smart shoe and stylish accessory. The simple denim matches practically any color (stay away from jeans in the same exact shade- hello Canadian tuxedo!) and gives those cheery pants the focus they deserve.

2. Over A Maxi Dress

Your summer maxi dress can easily be worn well into the fall months by adding a chambray shirt. Knot at the waist to define your curves, and roll at the sleeves for a little extra style. It will keep you warm, but also add some dimension to your outfit.

3. With Shorts

Even if you don’t have this adorable sleeveless version, a denim shirt pairs perfectly with a summer short. Dress up a pair of solid colored shorts, or tone down your wild-printed ones with a simple chambray and accessories.
