Like a crisp white button down, chambray shirt is definitely a wardrobe essential that is timeless, ageless and seasonless. Today, I picked two summer looks incorporated this iconic piece, hope they can give you more ideas to style yours.

Refined glamour with a touch of urban chic is Olivia Palermo’s signature. Here, she offsets a girly flirty white pleated skirt with a light washed chambray. Leopard print flats add details and fun to the look while maintaining the laid-back chic vibe.

Alessandra Ambrosio is known for her classic American casual off-duty looks with an urban bohemian touch. Here, a loose fitted shirt, shorts and strappy sandal combo might be too tomboyish, but she balanced out with details: colored striped hot shorts show off her sexy legs, stacked arm candy and flowy hair add girly elements.

Which is your favorite: Olivia Palermo’s refined girly look or Alessandra Ambrosio’s laid back casual look?
