The Perfect Chambray and How to Wear It

I am thinking ahead to the fall and thinking of things to build my fall, non-preggers wardrobe. One must have piece is a Chambray shirt. It should be a must in everyone’s closet! I’ve been on a quest to find one that is the perfect shade (in my eyes) and the perfect price!

On top of that, I threw together a few outfits, on Polyvore of course, just to show you how versatile Chambray can be!

The first is American Apparel. The fact that it is unisex turns me off a bit, but the color is not too dark and not too light, which makes me a fan of it.

The next one I found is from J Crew. Its a little more expensive, but the quality and feel of it is awesome. For me, its a little lighter than I would like, but still so versatile.

Gap’s Chambray comes in two shades to give you a choice. Gotta have options!!

The last one I found on my quest I think is my fave, and I found it at a store I typically don’t shop at too often, American Eagle. I love their clothes, let me say that first. I guess I just feel like a total old head when I walk in. Like “what the hell is this old woman doing in here?” I mean I know I am only 30 but still. Plus, when I was teaching high school, I would have some items from here and so would some of my students. I don’t know who it sucked for more- the student that was dressing like their teacher or the teacher who was wearing the same thing as a teenager!! Hahahaha….ok anyway, back to the shirt. Love it…see for yourself!

Now that you have your shirt….how to wear it?!!?!?! Here are a few different looks that I put together. Who knew there were so many awesome ways to wear this one shirt??? Putting these outfits together on Polyvore makes me that much more excited to be able to use pieces in my own wardrobe after this baby comes! Yay!!

The first one is comfy and casual. I LOVE the polka dot Chuck Taylor’s with it! Check out where to get each of the pieces here

This look I am obsessed with. I am loving the sequins. Loving it. Totally perfect for a date night or a night out with girlfriends. I would wear this in a heartbeat! Details on this outfit here

Have a cute dress that you want to wear again and again? Toss your Chambray over it, knot it, and you have a new look. The best piece of this look? The LuLu Foldover Snake Clutch by Blair Ritchey. For details on the other pieces in the look, check it out here

These last two looks I have posted before. So casual and chic. I LOVE them! My favorite part is the leopard! How adorable!! Check them here and here

Now go!!! Go get a chambray and wear the crap out of it!! A definite must for your wardrobe this fall!
