Denim’s Coolest Summer Alternative

Denim is forever—but as most women know, jeans can feel a bit stifling in sweltering temps. Between our French girl goals, DIY inclinations and seasonal favorites, many a summer ensemble calls for a dose of denim, or at the very least, a similar effect when feeling the blues. For a lighter take, chambray is the answer—its mottled appearance offers a look akin to jeans but with a more breathable effect courtesy of the linen-finished fabric. Whether you’re a jeans-and-T-shirt kind of girl or dabble in the realm of a Canadian tuxedo (we’re all about it), consider subbing in one of the 13 chambray pieces ahead, ranging from work-appropriate to weekend-ready.
