Chambray button up shirts are a timeless wardrobe staple. They're comfortable and easy to wear year round, with just about anything. Here, I'll give you inspiration for 3 different ways to wear a Chambray button up shirt.

If you're loving the Chambray button up shirt that I'm wearing in this post, I'm going to link it below for reference. It's more soft than rigid and it is available in sizes XS - XXL. And it's only $20! I am really enjoying the quality so far, very happy with my purchase! I sized up one size for a more oversized fit (I'm wearing a medium).


My favorite way to wear this type of top is with a pair of high waisted, wide leg cropped jeans. I really love the look of Ecru denim with the tone of the chambray. Don't forget to do a French tuck and roll up the sleeves to pull the look together and make it feel more polished.

This pair of denim is still available, so I'm going to link it below. I've had them for over a year and I still love them! True to size.


Next, I love wearing chambray tops unbuttoned, and over a tank top. Here, I tucked my tank top into a pair of high waisted, black mom jeans to define my waist line.

Black Mom Jeans linked below! They run a bit small and I am in a size 4.


Lastly, I went a more sophisticated route with this look by pairing the shirt with a pair of dressy Bermuda shorts. I tucked in the shirt completely and finished it off with a tan belt and shoes. You can totally get away with wearing this look to work if you have a more casual/smart casual dress code.

Dressy Bermuda Shorts linked below, and they're on sale! I'm in a size 2.


I hope these looks inspired you to style your Chambray button up shirts in different ways. Again, I'm going to link the Chambray shirt below in case you're interested in this exact one.
