If there’s anything other than a lightweight dress that is a summer staple, it’s denim shorts. While it’s an easy piece to throw on with a tank and flats for a beach outing, I love mixing it up for more of a dressed up look. My tips on how to wear denim shorts are:
- Add a silk or flowy top. If your shorts on the shorter side, balance out with a top that has a bit more fabric, but is still breathable for the hot summer days.
- Add in an unexpected shoe. Trade in the flip flops and opt for clogs, wedges, or a kitten heel mule to dress up your shorts. I love the juxtaposition of frayed denim with a more feminine shoe.
- Top if off with a bold lip. For the summer months, I love a bright orange or a peachy coral.
All three will take your denim shorts from weekend beach casual, to something that is perfect for drinks with your bae or a lunch date with the girls. This look reminds me of something Carrie would have worn in SATC right? I always loved the way she mixed vintage pieces in with her Manolos (these mules were a thrift store find – unworn!). One final tip is be a bit modest – no cheeks hanging out from those shorts.
