Keep this light wash chambray shirt looking classic and girly for class by pairing it with a pretty pleated skirt in a peachy hue. Slingback leopard print flats lend a ladylike touch to the ensemble, and are also a stylish summer-to-fall transition piece. Keep all of your essentials in a classic black patent tote.

A feminine statement necklace peeking out underneath the collared shirt adds the perfect amount of sparkle. Finish the look by painting your nails a sweet light pink hue and swiping on a shiny lip gloss.

Chambray Shirt: Night Out

This chambray shirt has a totally different vibe for a night out when paired with cropped, pewter-toned vegan leather leggings. Since the pants are so shiny, keep the rest of the look neutral.

Edgy accessories, like these black pumps with a trendy track sole, a black crossbody bag with chain detailing, and a double-layered hematite necklace, take this chambray shirt from day to night flawlessly. Finish the ensemble with big lashes and a bold orange lip.
