A Girly Spin On The Chambray Shirt

how to wear the one shoulder chambray shirt

Happy Monday ladies!  I’m starting off this busy week (what week isn’t busy though??) with a post today sharing one of my summer staples, the chambray shirt.  BUT, with an unexpected girly spin to it…the ONE SHOULDER CHAMBRAY SHIRT! (add a ruffle for extra girly-ness!)

As we all know, chambray is such a versatile fabric that can be worn almost anywhere and can be casual or dressed up with the right accessories!  (Pretty much all of my clothes fall into this category – I don’t own anything super fancy!!) In short, the chambray shirt is a great everyday piece to have in your closet.

I have a couple of long sleeved ones (that I wear as a lightweight version of a denim jacket – here are some cool inexpensive options here), sleeveless button up chambray tops, and now I incorporated this fabric into the popular off the shoulder trend seen all summer long!

The one shoulder version is super cute when you add a printed short to it and espadrille wedges like these Marc Fisher knockoffs by Steve Madden (they’re surprisingly comfy, give your calves a great shape, and come in multiple colors including a metallic shade!)

Since one shoulder tops show off your face a good bit, why not dress it up!

I paired this one with three summer staple accessories every gal should own…

  1. a BRIGHT RED LIP, Revlon Colorstay Overtime lipcolor in “Neverending Red” and another fave red is MAC “Lady Danger,”
  2. TORTOISESHELL SUNNIES like these Karen Walker ones (cheaper version here),
  3. and Bauble Bar TASSEL EARRINGS (come in a gazillion color options!)

I’m forever going to be a fan of adding colorful accessories to  my neutral chambray clothing to brighten things up.  Y’all are probably tired of seeing my yellow tassel earrings from Bauble Bar on repeat, but I just can’t get enough of them and they brighten my entire face!

The color yellow just adds an effortless summer vibe and I loved picking up the yellow in my printed shorts.  I linked some similar printed shorts below.

The next thing I want to wear with my one shoulder chambray is a neck scarf like the visual inspo below!! So chic and Parisian feeling right??
