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.

Style expert and founder of, Lilliana Vazquez stopped by TODAY Friday with affordable ways to wear this fabric favorite.

This season, the lightweight material is being fashioned into a wide selection of pieces, including jumpsuits and tunics, dresses and tops and even shoes and accessories.

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.
