In addition to a great pair of dark jeans, I believe there are two other denim essentials every gal should have in her closet; the chambray & a great pair of white jeans. Worn separately, or even together like I did here, they're the perfect elements for creating polished casual looks. 



Pair the chambray with pretty printed pencil skirts for Casual Friday or throw it on over a maxi dress for the perfect beach look. Whether you prefer a dark denim chambray, or a lighter wash you're sure to wear your chambray shirt time and time again. I reach for mine out of habit when I don't know what to wear. Just add color or a pattern and you're set. I'm wearing the Keeper Chambray shirt available at J.Crew.

The same goes for a great pair of white denim jeans. They're clean, classic, and perfect for warm summer days when shorts aren't an option. White looks great with neons and brights, but also makes a statement when worn with black. I'm wearing a pair from the Gap The Gap and Lucky Brand Jeans are two of my favorite places to get white denim. Gap at South Shore Plaza currently has their Legging Jean available in white, as well as their Always Skinny Jean available in a distressed white. Over at Lucky Brand Jeans they have styles of their Sienna Tomboy Jean, Charlie Skinny Jean, Sophia Capris, and their Sweet & Straight Jeans available in white. Head over to these retailers today to find your perfect pair of white denim jeans!
