12 LOOKS THAT TEACH you how to wear chambray denimJuly 19, 2015

For days now I have been contemplating whether to buy my first denim chambray shirt. Not because I do not think it is a staple and essential piece to any woman’s closet, but because I keep having a hard time trying to figure out which shade to purchase and how to pair it with different outfits. Finally, after contemplating long and hard and stalking different celebrities, I have come up with a few staple looks. From what I have gathered, it is best to wear a chambray denim shirt with black or dark navy pants or with a different shade of jeans. Obviously, if you want to wear it with the same shade color of jean pants, no one is hear to stop you! Just make sure you wear it in the right manner, showing a bit of skin between the pants and the shirt to break the outfit apart like celebrity Anne Vyalitsyna does in the music video Misery. If you want to wear it in a more professional setting, pair it with a cute black pencil skirt. Lastly, to turn it into a fun outfit for a night out, use it as a jacket over a cute strapless dress or wear it on top of a long pleated or voluminous skirt.

If you too are having a hard time figuring out how to wear chambray denim, here is some inspiration from a few of our favorite celebrities:
