These Flattering Chambray Shirts Will Get Some Serious Mileage This Season

Chambray is pretty much the unofficial sponsor of fall, and when you combine their ability to go from day-to-night along with their wear-with-anything appeal, it’s no wonder why. Though you’re probably well-versed in the versatility—not only can you wear it buttoned to the top under a loose-knit sweater for a preppy look, but you can layer a tie-front style over a maxi dress for a forgiving weekend brunch look—finding the oh-so-perfect chambray in a shade that works for you isn’t exactly a cakewalk.

While we’re advocates of shopping the sale section (especially in between seasons), it’s important that you get the most mileage for your buck, so plan to invest in a style similar to the way you’d hope to year a few years out of a handbag or heels. The perfect chambray should not only fit like a glove, but you should pick one with some serious staying power. It’s important to note that light-wash denim, while a huge no-go for jeans, is perfectly acceptable on top—feel free to rock a rinsed-wash chambray with anything from black jeans for day to a sequined mini for night. Second, unless you’re on the trading room floor, donning a dark-wash work shirt tucked into a black pencil skirt is perfectly office-chic. Just know that the lighter you go, the more casual you’ll look.

Now that you’re done soaking up some sartorial inspiration, click through to shop the best work shirts that’ll be putting in some wardrobe overtime this fall.
