    Like your favorite jeans — the ones you instantly reach for despite the pile of others you own — the right chambray top can create wardrobe magic. What other shirt can be worn layered, solo, tied in a knot, and, if Jenna Lyons is your sartorial spirit animal, Canadian-tuxedo style? So, yes, we're saying a trusty, versatile chambray can change your closet. And, more specifically, Rank & Style says the best one can be found at Madewell.

    Once again, the site crunched the numbers, taking customer reviews, editorial mentions, and overall hype into consideration. And, they determined that Madewell's Perfect Chambray Ex-Boyfriend version is tops. (We guess it's fitting that "perfect" is in its name.) At $70, this style comes just as we like it: without any glaring details or embellishments that we'll be so over next year. Instead, this design keeps it classic: a double-pocket front, up-to-the-collar buttons, and a faded wash (so, maybe it's more like your ex-ex-boyfriend shirt).

    And, just in case you're not quite accustomed to grabbing a chambray as often as your jeans, we've dreamed up a few examples ahead to prove just how hardworking one button-up can be.

    For more top-ranked shopping picks, check out Rank & Style's recommendations for untraditional trench coats, midi-skirts, and bright spring prints.
