I have whole-heartedly jumped on the chambray train this summer, in part because the material is so wonderfully versatile. I'm a firm believer that chambray can even be worn to work, depending on your work environment, of course. I recommend pairing a chambray top with a pencil skirt, heeled sandals and a pretty necklace. If you work in a more creative environment, try the look with a skirt in a fun color or print and a statement necklace like I did here. If your work environment is a little more reserved, try the look with a navy pencil skirt and a strand of pearls or pearl stud earrings. If you prefer pants over skirts, try pairing your chambray shirt with tailored khakis or navy blue slacks and a sleek blazer. The key to making chambray work for the office is to pair it with other pieces that are more classic, refined, and sophisticated.
