The button-up chambray shirt is one of my favorite spring wardrobe staples – it's casual yet cute, laidback without being sloppy, and – best of all – it's incredibly versatile. And now that the style has been "in" for a few years now, this season is bringing forth some fun updates to the classic style, from studs to leather accents and more. Whether you're brave enough to rock denim on denim, or just want a stylish over-layer for your festive spring dresses, check out my favorite spring spins on the chambray shirt!
Studs and spikes: Rocker-inspired accents and hardware like studs, spikes, and rhinestones give this otherwise preppy look an edgier vibe. Pictured above: Forever 21 Spiked & Studded Chambray Shirt
Prints and patterns: From floral to polka dots and beyond – all our favorite jeans are getting the patterned treatment, so why not our denim shirts? Pair with leggings or some contrasting colored denim for maximum effect! Pictured above: Band of Gypsies Floral Chambray Shirt
Dip-dyed: Tie-dye, ombre effect, or dip-dyed – this style has a decidedly DIY vibe, but you have to admit – it brings back awesome memories from summer camp. Just me? Pictured above: Warehouse Western Shirt in Dip Dye
Leather accents: Last fall and winter saw plenty of leather accents – dresses, contrasting-sleeve parkas, and even t-shirts – so it's only fitting that our favorite spring fare should get the same treatment! Pictured above: IRO Travis Denim Shirt
