What to Wear: Chambray from Office to Weekend

CambraY mashupThe chambray shirt is no new item, but it’s a favorite closet staple for good reason – it is incredibly versatile. I recently went to Carmel for a girl’s weekend and made this shirt the centerpiece of my packing. Here are three ways to wear it from office through the weekend. What is your favorite way to wear a chambray shirt? What are your weekend getaways?


Chambray work

J Crew necklace and skirt, Ivanka Trump heels, similar here, Shanghai Tang cuff, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Celine “Audrey” glasses.

I am a strong believer in not wearing jeans to the office, but a chambray shirt is a nice compromise for a relaxed summer workday. I’ve paired it here with a structured pencil skirt, nude pumps and a classic gold link necklace.

Going Out

Cambray Fun

Cosa Bella bralett, Paige denim jeans, J Crew heels, Shanghai Tang clutch, Celine “Audrey” sunglasses.

The over-sized silhouette contrasts well with skinny jeans on the weekend for going out. I’ve added a lacy bralette underneath and unbuttoned an extra button for a touch of sexy in this off-duty look.


Cambray relax

Tory Burch sunnies, J Crew necklace, old dress but similar here, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Banana Republic sandals, Essie “Meet Me at Sunset” polish.

Who doesn’t love stripes? The shirt easily acts as a cover-up for a dress for brunch or farmer’s market trips on the weekend.
