How to Wear Chambray to the Office

The chambray shirt has long risen to the status of must-have, wardrobe staple.  So, the continued popularity of this lightweight, denim look-alike comes as no surprise this fall.

In today’s post, my chambray shirt is styled for the office.  The shirt is paired with an all black, houndstooth skirt.  A black velvet blazer, purchased in the Gap way back in 2007 and still looking new, provides the perfect topper.  Red pumps, a bold gold necklace, and a stripe clutch complete the look.

    I probably wear chambray to the office more than I should, but no one has complained yet! I'm loving this buttoned-up look!

      Fantastic. Rock that chambray at work, Lauren. A chambray top has practically earned white shirt status now anyway.

    Would never have even noticed that chambray because the rest of it was so perfect! And I may have been distracted by the shoes 🙂 Great look!
