Chambray, 3 Ways

One of the best ways to maximize your wardrobe is to re-imagine pieces you already own. I like to try and create three outfits with a particular piece, which makes getting dressed oh so simple! Today, my sister & I styled a classic, chambray shirt a few different ways..taking you from a girls night out to a casual day of classes.

Denim gets a glamorous update when paired with a chantilly lace skirt in shades of onyx and blush. A few pleats and a delicate inky ruffle peeking out from underneath balance the utility feel of the chambray. To continue the feminine feel of the outfit, I chose a pair of jet black suede pumps and a sparkling statement necklace. For a night out, I'd rather not take a big bag, so a metallic clutch in a muted gold is understated yet still very chic.

Denim on denim is one of the hot trends for fall; however, it tends to be a tricky one to pull off. I have found that the easiest way to wear this style is to play with opposites. For this look I put together a casual light wash chambray shirt with tailored and sleek dark wash skinny jeans. By using fitted pants with a looser top, you can achieve a nice balance, and the contrast between dark and light, tones down the denim on denim effect. To add length to the silhouette, I added dark wedges, and to finish off the look, I wore a white gem statement necklace, sparkling earrings,  and a chic and easy ponytail.

Printed pants have been everywhere this season, and to be honest, I've been a little wary of the trend until I found this cute, cropped pair at H&M. The print is just right and the burgundy color is so of the moment. This outfit is so simple; however, the details look thoughtful, making it the perfect outfit to choose when you're crunched for time. When worn with the chambray top and a patent cross-body bag, you're ready for a trip to the museum, brunch or a day of classes.

Loving the way you have paired the chambray!! I like the printed pants, too. Very daring yet chic, and they're so trending right now. :)
I'm brainstorming some fashion questions to ask you on twitter!
And ps, I just got back into surfing! Wish I lived a tad closer to the water to practice more, because man I could use the practice. I just got a new board and really want to get good on it :) how do you like surfing, Candace!?

Very cute! I've been noticing the printed pants trend this season, though I've yet to get on board because they may be unflattering for my thighs. I love the pair you have on, though!

I never thought I'd say this, but the denim on denim really works here!
