A good chambray shirt is a tried and true wardrobe staple, and for good reason: Denim is the one fabric we can't live without. A denim or chambray top is so versatile -- you can wear it as a blouse, a dress, or even as an extra layer.

While you might think of a chambray shirt as a summer staple, it's totally wearable in winter too! Here are two ways to style a chambray shirt right now, for day and night:

How to Style a Chambray Shirt for Class:

Daytime outfit with an oversized chambray shirt including black leggings, brown suede boots, statement necklace, taupe tote bag

Products: Chambray Top - H&M, Leggings - Macy's, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace - Aldo, Shoes - Sam Edelman

This oversized denim top can be paired with everyone's most worn item around finals week...leggings. An oversized denim top and a good pair of leggings form the perfect combination, creating a look that's made for attending classes. The outfit is super comfortable and so easy to pair with accessories: These taupe boots and bag are great options.

You can also wear this look by adding a white T-shirt underneath and wearing the denim top open. It gives the outfit a layered effect. These simple pieces give you a great foundation to play around with. You can even add a belt, giving the look a completely different vibe. There are so many different combinations, your options are limitless!

How to Style a Chambray Shirt for a Night Out:

Night outfit with an oversized chambray shirt including over the knee boots, red statement earrings, red crossbody bag

Products: Chambray Top - H&M, Earrings - Free People, Crossbody - Kate Spade, Shoes - H&M

Throw caution to the wind and wear this oversized daytime top as a nighttime dress. Add on a pair of thigh-high leather boots and your look is basically complete. If you're feeling more casual, feel free to keep on those leggings from earlier or switch it up with a leather pair.

You’ll need a bag of course to really complete this look. How else will you keep track of that new lipgloss and all of your other valuables? However if you need a little something extra to take the look to the next level, add on a pair of statement earrings. These earrings from Free People will definitely make a statement, if those boots aren't statement enough. Go for a bold shade; a red hue is the perfect choice as the has been popping up all over.
