We won’t stop until we find new ways to rock every piece in our wardrobes, and right now we’re all about that denim (because does it ever not look good?). Currently, we have our eyes set on those fab chambray toppers. Crazy versatile and anything but stuffy, they’re the perfect piece to ease you into the work week or get the weekend started off just right. If you need a little outfit inspo to breathe new life into this tried-and-true top, look no further. Scroll below for three new ways to style your favorite denim 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.
