23 ways to wear chambray — the easy-breezy denim that's comfy year-round

If you’re shopping for easy, breezy wardrobe staples, consider something in comfy chambray.

This versatile fabric is extremely breathable and light, which means it's perfect for the scorching days of summer. Plus, it’s a classic neutral that looks great with the rest of your summer clothing — whether you’re wearing a look that’s all white, colorful or full of fun patterns.

You can dress it up for a night out on the town (add a sparkly necklace or metallic sandals) or dress it down for a backyard barbecue (hello, flip-flops!). While you may be buying now, remember that chambray tops are great layering pieces all year-round.
