Finally, our fourth and final installment of the 4 Ways To Wear Chambray Shirt series is up. In this series, I am featuring my favorite ways to wear chambray shirts in the colder months.

You’ve seen me paired my chambray shirt with jeans (where my kids made an appearance and we all wore matching outfits), leggings, and skirt. The last piece of clothing that I really love pairing chambray shirts with (and is probably on the top of my favorite list) during the colder months is the maxi dress.

You can wear your chambray shirt with a pleated chiffon maxi dress for that dreamy look or pair it with a printed one to make your outfit more interesting and fun. I chose to pair mine with a printed thigh high slit maxi dress for a head-turning look.

One fun fact about this maxi dress – it is one of my favorites because I got this when I was pregnant with my daughter. Back then, I felt huge and unattractive; but wearing this dress (probably because of the slit) instantly gives me that confidence boost I needed. Check out 7 Simple Things To Feel Good About Yourself to find out what other things I do to make me feel good about myself when I need it the most.

    You can never go wrong with a class chambray! I wear mine with a maxi too – it’s solid black and then I add a big ol’ gem statement necklace with it – one of my favorite go-to looks!

    I’m allllllll about the chambray shirt. It’s such a versatile piece. I especially love pairing it with a black maxi, just like you have here, but I’m also a fan of wearing it over a pair of white shorts, a tan belt and tan gladiator sandals in the Summertime. 🙂
