Ladies, don't be weary of this denim trend—there are so many ways to wear chambray shirts that you're bound to get it right. Whether dressed up or down, chambray is such a fun and casual piece to mix and match with. If you're unsure of what to pair with chambray, I've compiled a list to help give you some ideas. Check out this list of ways to wear chambray shirts:

One of the many ways to wear chambray shirts is by pairing them with a skirt. Full miniskirts are the perfect fun and flirty piece for spring, so try tucking a chambray shirt into one for an instant femme look. If you're really looking to push the envelope, try a full leather mini skirt for a great juxtaposition against the denim. To go a bit more casual, try a loose printed maxi skirt instead.

Lace is always an easy way to add a touch of elegance to an outfit, so why not try it with chambray? Tuck a denim shirt in to a pair of lacy, tiered shorts (I recommend an ivory pair) for a feminine twist on the classic chambray.

Vests can really transform the look of an outfit, without the heaviness of a jacket. Try an olive green cargo vest (it looks great against light denim) or a faux fur vest. If you'd like a little more of an outdoors-y look, try a puffy vest.

If you're planning to wear denim on denim, it's important to make sure that you keep the washes opposite. For example, if wearing a light, faded chambray shirt, pair it with deep denim pants. You can also play it safe by pairing chambray with colored or printed skinny pants or trousers.

Sweaters look great with chambray and give you a lot of different style options. Try wearing a cable-knit sweater over a chambray shirt and let the denim collar and bottom hem peep out for a bit more of an un-done look. You could also wear a colorful cardigan over chambray, and roll up the sleeve to create a denim cuff.

Button-downs buttoned all the way to the top button are a great new trend giving a nod to nerd-chic. Try this look with a chunky statement necklace that hits right at the collar bone. You'd be surprised how much the way you button a shirt can change your overall look.
