How to Style a Chambray Shirtdress: 2 Cute Outfit Ideas

Shirtdresses are such a great universal piece of clothing. They can be worn in so many different situations, from running errands to dinner, to work, even! When I grabbed this chambray shirtdress, I couldn’t choose how to style it for you, so I ended up with two looks. One casual, one dressed up, keep scrolling to see them both!

The biggest difference between the looks is the styling and accessories. The dress itself, being chambray is already pretty casual, but you can do this with any shirtdress style. This chambray dress is super comfortable! I love chambray styles especially in the summer, so this dress was a no brainer when I saw it on sale!

A shirtdress is such a classic style, it’s a great piece for a spring or summer capsule wardrobe, as well! This particular chambray shirtdress is a great price at Old Navy, and I also love these other options below as well!


One Dress, Two Ways: 2 Ways to Wear a Chambray Shirtdress

Casual Chambray Shirtdress Look

For the first style, to wear this shirtdress casually, I threw my hair up into a ponytail, grabbed my Yankees hat (which I got in NYC at the Yankees game) and paired it with my white converse.

The best part of this look in my opinion though is the whimsical taco purse, and gummy bear earrings by Baublebar!

You could easily wear this as a daily look to run errands, run around a city being a tourist, or even to a baseball game! The hat makes it a little inappropriate for most dinner settings, and if you’re like me, once I put on a hat, it doesn’t come off until I can wash my hair!


Dressed-Up Chambray Shirtdress Look

This style is also a casual look, but slightly more elevated than the “casual” version. For this look, I chose to wear my hair down but tied my vintage Oscar de la Renta scarf around it like a headband. (See more hair scarf styles here.) I grabbed my favorite pink Alexander Wang Baby Rockie bag, flower earrings, and my favorite mules with the bows.

This outfit is perfect for brunch, a shopping day, or even date night.

I love that just a simple swap in accessories can change an entire outfit!
