How to wear a chambray shirt this spring.
A quick round up of 5 HSS certified looks on how to wear your chambray shirt should have you hanging one in your closet. (If you don’t have one already, here are some great options.) A shirt no man should be without; it’s no wonder why this classic cloth works in almost every situation.
1. Dressed Up Spring Staple
Although chambray is typically thought of as a casual fabric, it’s been slowly making its way into the closets of stylish men as a dressed-up option as well. The texture and breathability of this fabric makes it a spectacular option for the slightly cool spring weather. By replacing your typical blue dress shirts for a chambray one, it’s an easy way to update one of your old suited looks.
2. Easy Weekender
Sometimes it’s all about having the essentials. Don’t overthink your casual look when it comes to comfort. Top it off with a classic fedora and go about your weekend.
3. Upgrade Your Office Style
Lots of men are dressing more casually in the office, but business casual doesn’t mean jeans and an untucked dress shirt. Elevate your business casual look to feel similar to your dressed up looks. Introducing a chambray shirt into the mix dresses down the look, while still feeling sharp. Switch to a button-down version if you’re going for a more relaxed look.
4. Day to Night Transition
With the last stretch of winter still upon us, you might still need a layered look to transition from day to night. Wearing a chambray shirt provides just the right amount of casualness to a sharp-looking night out with friends. You can easily ditch the tie if it’s too formal. Just make sure the denim is trim and in a different shade of blue.
5. Go-To Casual Shirt
Just because it’s the weekend doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care how you dress. Easily look more put together with a pair of light chinos and low-top sneakers. Top it off with a worn-in suede jacket and you’ve got the perfect grown-up look for the weekend.
