Just about everyone has a chambray shirt in their closet. They are so classic and easy to style. You can wear them with white jeans, chinos, skirts, and even business casual work outfits. Wearing them for work can be a little bit tricky though, because they can be more on the casual side of business casual! Here I’ve offered 3 super easy ways to make it a little bit dressier. This look is perfect for the office!
1. Make sure the sleeves are neat and even.
Whether than means wearing them completely rolled down, or creating a neat fold to expose your wrists, make sure it looks streamlined. Chambray shirtsleeves are so easy to just push up or casually roll, but making this small change will have a big impact on your look.
2. Elevate your look with a unique tuck.
This is a fun way to change up the outfit! Instead of buttoning all the way and then tucking the shirt in, try buttoning only one button, then pulling one side over the other to make a faux wrap. (You can pin or tape if needed, but I’ve found that this is actually fairly secure!) This slim tuck makes your top look slightly more fitted and professional, while the unique wrap adds an element of stylish personality!
3. Add a statement necklace.
This is a super quick way to add personality and dress up your outfit! A statement necklace finishes off this stylish, professional look. Choose a basic silver or gold, or pick a classic color to coordinate with your classic chambray.
Business casual with some style and personality!
You all know I love finding multiple ways to wear pieces in my closet, and this is such a fun one. Three super quick steps that make a big change!
