3 Ways to Style Your Fave Denim Shorts

We all have a pair- those denim shorts that are perfectly worn in, super comfortable, and perfect for fun-in-the-sun days at the beach. At some point in the summer, though, I get lazy and revert to throwing on a tee and flip flops with my shorts and call it a day. But this is a terrible mistake! Denim shorts are versatile pieces that can be styled every which way, and so here are a few tips to keep their magic alive this summer:

1. Pair them with a blazer:
Another thing we all have in our closets is a basic striped tee, which, when paired with denim shorts, is so perfect for summer but can get so boring so quickly. So, pair the look with a crisp white blazer and crisp white sneakers. The monochromatic color choices keep it looking clean and fresh, while the blazer dresses up the shorts and gives them a bit of structure. This look is still totally appropriate for a casual day out (re: tee and sneakers), but looks THAT much better!

2. Add a blouse and/or some edge:
I love the look of a long-sleeve blouse with denim shorts. The mix of seasons is almost scandalous, and gives you a new section of your wardrobe to take advantage of. Add a little summer fun with a denim vest and bright accents- like a colorful statement necklace, pink lipstick, and/or a patterned clutch. An edgy pair of booties or even a simple pair of sandals are a great way to finish off the look.

3. Dress 'em up!
As we've seen from countless fashion bloggers and Solange Knowles, a pair of shorts can be rockin' for a night out. Your legs with look a mile long with a pair of heels, and a nice top (like a cute patterned peplum top) and a blazer (obvi) make it going-out appropriate. Keep the look clean and polished with simple jewelry and a streamlined bag (like this simple oversized clutch).
