3 New Ways to Wear Your Favorite Chambray Shirt
How to Style a Chambray Shirt for the Office
Stiff white shirts, be gone! Denim is about to do your work wardrobe right by infusing modern interpretations of office essentials, like an of-the-moment suede skirt and a bright, bold blazer with a casual edge (perfect for Mondays when the whole nine-to-five thing is a little hard to swallow). Then spice things up with colorful metallic mules, amped-up hair accessories and a gilded eye.

How to Style a Chambray Shirt for a Night Out
Unless you’re keeping it low key or hitting up an indie show at your favorite underground haunt when the weekend comes round, a chambray shirt might not make it into your night-out rotation — but it totally should. Dress it up with funky separates, like a pair of leather overalls, then take things to the next level with an arsenal of eye-catching accessories. Our favorite ideas? A fluorescent bag, bold faux fur scarf and colorful kicks.
