Hello Ladies. Today I am joining my friends Sandra from Apart from My Art and Jennifer from A Well Styled Life and we are going to chat about styling a chambray shirt. It is beginning to cool off in the evenings but the days can still be quite warm. I wear chambray all the time. It is part of my uniform. Covid is dictating how I am styling it. We rarely go out to dinner, and we do very little entertaining at home. So, I am going to show you how I would really wear a chambray shirt today. Let’s take a look at how to style a chambray shirt after 50. For me it is all about the accessories.
CHAMBRAY STYLE DURING COVID
Here is the reality. I know not very exciting. I might wear this when I get “cleaned up” for dinner after working in the yard all day.
On the rare occasion that we might have someone over for an alfresco dinner, I might wear the Cp Shades Lily skirt with my trusty J Crew chambray shirt, and an old Lucky Brand embroidered jacket. I also like it with my Gap jean jacket that I have had for years. They are the best. I own a dark one and a light one. I have had both for probably ten years. I am also wearing my Artemis Design Company Mules which you can’t see. You can see how I styled the same CP shades skirt last fall in the post Over 50 fall fashion we can actually wear.
You can find the lily linen skirt on Free People here
Let’s face it most of us just aren’t getting dressed up much anymore. It does feel good to throw on a nice pair of jeans, a chambray shirt, and maybe a Kantha wrap if it cools off. You can find similar wraps on Etsy here. I accessorized with a pair of bamboo earrings and horn and bamboo bracelets which are linked below the photo
Here I am wearing a pair of Banana Republic Pixie Pants, a J Crew Chambray shirt, and a assymetrical black cardigan I have owned for years and my Birdies. I love these shoes. They are super comfortable and accomodate my bunion. The pin is vintage and the earrings are Native American, similar ones linked below.
Immediately before Covid hit I wore my chambray shirt with the Eileen Fisher organic linen jaket to a conference in San Francisco. This jacket is no longer available, but you can find it on Ebay here. I am wearing it with The Artemis Mules you can find here. All items that can be purchased are linked below the photo.The mules are pricey but add interest to any solid outfit. You can read my post on what I packed for a three day conference here.
How do you feel about chambray? Do you wear it? Thank you so much for reading How to Style a Chambray Shirt After 50. Now pop over and visit Jennifer and Sandra to see how they have styled theirs.
