We're seeing patterns all over lately. Literally, shirts and pants are getting the printed treatment, but what's really been getting love from a lot of brands is the chambray shirt. The workwear workhorse is also ideal for warm summer temperatures, since the lightweight fabric will let you feel a cool breeze much more than a thick oxford. Besides, a printed chambray is the perfect item to punch up a solid summer wardrobe. Just don't overdo it, and let one pattern do all the talking. From polka dots, jacquard and bolder prints, we've rounded up a fews options at a variety of prices:
$50 / $30
This combines the workwear-favorite hickory stripes with preppy details like a button-down collar.
Rogue Territory, $115
Made from a 4 oz jacquard in Los Angeles, it fits slim and features a pronounced button placket.
Wallace & Barnes, $128
A classic sport shirt with an all-over polka dot print made from Japanese chambray and patch pockets.
Go bold in this Aztec pattern, crafted from 100% cotton in a classic fit with double patch pockets.
$150 / $120
This is more than meets the eye. A closer look at the fabric reveals multicolor flecks, resulting in a subtle, slubby speckled look.
