5 Different Ways To Layer Chambray!

How to Layer a Chambray Top
 We already know that the Chambray blouse is a very versatile piece that pretty much goes with everything...so instead of showing you all the different things it goes with, I thought it would be fun to you you some different ways it can be used as a layering piece!
Wear a strapless Dress over a blouse
Under a Strapless Dress
The only time I've every worn a strapless dress in its natural strapless form was as a bridesmaid in a wedding.  It's not that I don't like how they look, I'm just not that comfortable in them...but I'm totally comfortable in this dress when I wear a shirt under it!  Plus the addition of the chambray blouse under the dress instantly adds interest to the outfit!
Office Appropriate Chambray
Under a Blazer and a Tank Top
I think the biggest thing to consider when layering a Chambray blouse under a tank top is to make sure that the shirt tails hang out below the tank.  I ended up tying a knot in the back of my tank so that it would be short enough for this.  Adding the blazer on top instantly polishes the outfit off!
Layering Chambray with a T-shirt
 Under a T-Shirt
Much like the layering of a tank top, make sure that the shirt tails of the Chambray blouse show below your t-shirt.  I ended up knotting my t-shirt in the front for it to work.  I also think it's important that there's something interesting about the t-shirt you layer over the blouse...if mine didn't have these fun sleeves I don't think it would look quite as nice.

Peplum Blouse with Chambray

This time you want to make sure that your shirt tails don't peek out from under your blouse, that would look a little messy!  I love how polished this layering looks, the peplum instantly dresses up the Chambray.

Summer Dress and Chambray
 Tied Over a Dress
I think this look works best when the dress is on the flowy side...anything too structured just wouldn't look right...although I would be totally OK if you proved me wrong!
