Three Ways: Chambray Shirt for Work and Play
Nov 22, 2011
The chambray shirt in these sets is perfect. It’s just dark enough. Just slim enough. Just casual enough. Perhaps, that is why it is selling out so fast.
I do not believe that cold weather is an excuse to wear black and hide my body away. Do that and your just asking to wake up in March pale, depressed and with ten extra pounds on your middle. Color, people, color.
I think casual attire for the office should be a little more office than casual. So here, we have a blazer and a pencil skirt to balance the casualness of the chambray shirt.
I added some frilled booties, I would probably wear them with nude fishnets. Throw on some slightly sparkly studs and toss in a large bag and your ready to go from casual Friday to your weekend vacation.
This ensemble is screaming for a sleek ponytail and a lightly-tinted pink lip.
Chambray with black denim is a very popular look right now. Look through the street style photos from NY Fashion Week, and you will see this ensemble pops up frequently.To glam it up a bit, I added sky high heels, a teal snakeskin clutch and sparkly earrings.
For your hair, I would suggest loose waves. For your makeup, I would suggest eyeliner and a matte lip in red or berry.
This look is an interesting mix of casual and dressy, but I like the way the taffeta ball skirt plays with the chambray shirt. And, if you happened to find a ball gown skirt at the local Goodwill, you could probably put this look together for peanuts. To balance the outfit, I chose suede boots, a box clutch and sophisticated drop earrings.
This is the kind of outfit that you wear to a fancy dinner party at your boss’s home. I think it would look best with bouncy, wavy hair and natural makeup with extra mascara.
