Looking for the perfect throw-on-over-everything top for summer? You know the kind I’m referring to…one that you seem to grab every darn day, never gets fully put away after it’s washed because you already need to wear it again, just works with so much regardless of weather and unfailingly gets the job done?

Us too. And we think we’ve found it.

Spoiler: It’s a classic-yet-cool, oversized chambray shirt. It’s lightweight, soft summer perfection. It’s…I-stole-my-husband’s-(or dad’s, honestly)-shirt-and-I-look-10x-better-in-it vibes.

Still with me?

Summer’s Here, & We’re Wearing Gap’s Chambray Shirt: 6 Outfit Ideas

Which chambray, you ask? Oh, just this beauty from Gap. Check out the lovely, relaxed, cotton shirt below. It’s amazing.

In order to prove to you just how versatile this Gap button-up is, I’ve styled it up in six true-to-summer ways for maximum wearability. You’ll see… It’s like the ultimate one-and-done top.

Gap Chambray Denim Big Shirt

1. Worn As A Swimsuit Cover-Up

The adorable Printfresh pickleball paddles wouldn’t show up in my widget, so here’s a link to them. (Did they inspire this entire outfit? Mayyyybee…) Anyway, this one is pretty self-explanatory. Beach breezes don’t mess around when the sun decides to play hide-and-seek and sand gets whirled into the mix. This chambray top is the perfect cover-up for a bit of warmth after a salty dip or a much-needed sun shield.

2. With A 2-Piece Linen Set

I love the look of this chambray button-up over a matching set because it’s so, so simple yet still feels super-styled. I specifically picked a linen set because there are SO many good ones out right now, and linen + chambray is such a winning summer combo. Gap’s linen-blend set (shirt, shorts) and this other linen two-piece by Reformation are more prime examples.

3. To Balance Crochet Shorts

If you haven’t noticed, crochet is pop-u-lar this season. It’s so playful and sweet and can add a lot of color to an otherwise neutral ‘fit. (If you’d rather wear neutral crochet shorts, peek at these.) I toned down these fun Farm Rio shorts with a plain white tee & neutral sandals.

4. Tied On A T-Shirt Mini Dress

To me, this is the perfect day-in-the-city/zoo/boardwalk outfit for summertime day trips. So freaking comfy & easy with an added layer that you can tie around your waist when it’s hot or throw on when the temp dips. Fasten a gorg belt bag like this woven Clare V. fanny pack around your waist for a little bit of shape (and free hands), if you’d like.

5. Over A Knit Midi Dress

Ahhhhh, this knit dress from Shopbop is such a dream. It’s stunning on its own — especially with a pair of nude heeled sandals for a less casual look — but easily dresses down with a pair of flat sandals and the chambray shirt for everyday (using that word lightly, haha) wear. Here’s a similar, more affordable mini-dress version at Gap.

6. With A Tube Top (+ Jean Shorts)

I’m pretty much obsessed with every color of this Reformation tube top with jean shorts. It leans a little fancier being sleeveless, so it contrasts beautifully with some semi-distressed jean shorts (especially in the amazing dark wash, Broken Midnight) and the light chambray top thrown over. I’m in love with this outfit.
