Work a denim-on-denim look by pairing an ombré chambray shirt with patchwork denim cutoffs. Add some texture by styling the outfit up with bold accessories and reptile heels.

Play with silhouettes by picking out a two-toned chambray top. Choose one that has a darker tone at the bottom and pair it with similar-toned pants and boots to create the illusion of longer legs or opt for the opposite to break up the areas of the torso.

If chambray comes off as a little too menswear for you, opt for the lace variety to offset the fabric’s fashion gender. If you’d rather inject just a touch of femininity, pair the lace and chambray top with brightly colored skinny jeans and lace-up boots.
