The Chambray Shirt Question

I love a good chambray top (chambray top = denim button-down), but one problem I always face when deciding to wear one is, what do I pair it with? I'm not a big fan of the whole denim on denim craze so I'm left with either layering a chambray top over a dress or with a skirt, or maybe, just maybe even with leggings...if the chambray shirt is long enough that is. 

But recently it hit me - colored denim! I know, I know, I'm late to the colorful jeans party, but now that I've arrived, I can't believe that I ever considered my wardrobe to be complete without them! Black jeans, white jeans, burgundy jeans, patterned jeans, you-name-it jeans: chambray goes with it all and compliments any look and any color scheme quite nicely! 

Chambray tops are perfect buttoned all the way up or worn open with a tee underneath, like I did here. In warmer weather I love a chambray top layered over a sundress instead of a cardigan for a more casual and effortless feel. Chambray tops really offer a lot more room for possibilities than you may have thought! Chambray for the win!

  10. Chambray for the WIN for sure! This is a home run! I always seem to grab my mint jeans when wearing my chambray shirt, but that might just be because I don't have pink yet!
