When it comes to building a wardrobe, I like the idea of sticking to simple classics that never go out of style and appear effortless, yet stylish. Then I like to punch up a look with bold, bright accessories, eye-catching shoes, or a colorful bag.
Take the chambray shirt, for example. It’s so easy to wear and pair, yet it’s still so sexy and stylish. Tucked or untucked, with the sleeves rolled up, it’s just got a versatility and effortlessness to it that I adore. It’s clearly timeless, and can be worn at any age and any time of year. It’s one of those things you have in your closet that you always find yourself going for, because it looks great with no thought whatsoever. That’s my kind of shirt!
I think chambray looks best with black skinny jeans. Ashley Olsen clearly agrees with me:
I like it best the way Kate Bosworth wears it here-oversized, untucked, with very skinny jeans. The oversized factor is part of what gives the easy, “just threw this on” vibe. Bonus- you can eat whatever you want!

aren't they just so chic and effortless. love them. adore this post, hun. if you get a second, I'd love to hear what you think of my Gossip Girl inspired look. xo
I think my favorite look is the chambray shirt with the white pants. I love the contrast and it stays far away from the "canadian tuxedo" look.
I just got one and could not be happier with it! I paired it with my new plum skinnies, but can't wait to test it out with looks like these! Great roundup!
where did you get one!? i have been looking all over for one
love this post!
Christina I got one at Gap a few years back that I've always loved. They usually have some good options, but definitely J. Crew has some great ones they usually always keep in stock online.
I love a great chambray shirt paired with black skinny jeans. I'm also obsessed with that stripped J.Crew skirt 🙂
I loveee the layering with the pink sweater, I never thought that would work but seeing the picture it totally works so well!
I'm obsessed with chambray! That first image & the image with the J.Crew Resort sparkly skirt are just perfect.
chambray shirt is definitely the most versatile piece in my closet! LOVE!
LOVE the chambray with pink- that is something I will need to work into my wardrobe ASAP!
Chambray is so versatile! I love it paired with the white jeans and the black pants. I'm always coming up with more ways to wear it!
so timeless, wearable and chic when paired with a skinny jean…black OR white. I'm all about the simple classic wardrobe too!
I've been on the search for the perfect chambray shirt. I like that it's open to so many styling options!
definitely agree with you and ashley- love it the most paired with black jeans!
Love the chambray shirt; it's just such a relaxed look!
Chambray is the shirt that goes with everything. I've been on the hunt for a perfectly fitting one for me, next stop madewell!
I think Chambray with neutral colored pant and a bright accessory is my favorite way to style it.

I've been searching for a new one too! I read online that the Keeper from J. Crew is good (that's the one Samantha from Could I Have That? is wearing above) but unfortunately it's backordered online. I'm hoping it comes back in stock soon!
I love this look! Especially tucked into skinny jeans or a leather skirt 🙂
