Celebrity trends may come and go, but we are thrilled to see the denim shirt holding steady among Hollywood's hottest. Every celeb has her own way of wearing the trend, and we particularly love how these 17 stars worked the basic fashion staple. Channel your inner fashionista by styling denim on denim like Kate Bosworth, balance a pair of darker bottoms with a denim top like Taylor Swift, or layer a chambray blouse over a floral maxi skirt like Jenna Dewan. As you can see from these looks, a denim shirt is super versatile; it works well with everything. So step inside to see more celebs working the trend, then shop our favorite picks.

Our One Piece, Five Ways adventure continues with Fab reader Work Your Closet, whose name suits her perfectly — she never ceases to work her closet with finesse. In this case, she's working a trendy denim button-down shirt in five fabulous ways. My favorite version is this sassy sweet ensemble. On its own, her ruffle dress would be too sweet, but the denim shirt provides the magic touch. Enter to see it all.

Button-down chambray shirts never go out of style and, luckily, there are plenty of chic options this season. Wear one with printed shorts, slim skirts or as a cover-up on the beach. Stylish at any age and flattering on a variety of body types, there's a reason this menswear staple has become a favorite among the ladies.
We love a monochromatic look and this one, as was part of the Obedient Sons & Daughters Spring 2009 collection, tops our list. We love the boyishness of this buttoned up shirt, especially because it's paired with sexy platform sandals. Above, some alternative options to get this look now at a slightly lower price point--although, we wouldn't blame you if you waited for the real thing.
Sometimes trends appear to us through osmosis. Just the other day we walking down the street thinking, 'Hey man, I'd really like a thin, denim shirt', and then WHAM!, we see one in the window of our favorite vintage store. Now, it seems we can't escape the darn things. A denim button down could be put in the b-list of wardrobe staples but like we always say, if your Dad has had one for twenty years, you're in the clear. We imagine it worn loosely, like you've just run out of the house for the paper and a coffee. This summertime basic would be sweet with a pair of tortoise specs, a white Hanes t shirt (no bra!), and pair of vintage shorts (yes, this imaginary outfit inspired our 'Hey man, I'd really like a denim shirt.'). With fashion as simple as this, hell, you might actually have time to read The New Yorker this afternoon.
