We all know by now that the colored denim trend has taken over designers’ collections and made its way into our closets. It’s no surprise seeing as this trend was huge for spring. From designer brands like rag & bone to affordable collections like Urban Outfitters, it doesn’t look like these neon and pastel hues will be going anywhere. Denim’s great for the cool temperatures of spring and even the chillier months of fall and winter, but not always ideal for the summer heat. Don’t ditch the colored denim, but try incorporating this trend into the perfect summer short.
I spotted this Fashionista catching up on some “me-time” in Schenley Plaza. With the hell on earth that is finals week, it’s important to have some down time. And why not relax in style with a pair of colored shorts like this Fashionistas. Pairing her purple pastel short with a denim button-down and white loafers, this Fashionista's color spectrum savvy has created an easy summer look while staying on trend.
Because we don’t have the option of layering funky pieces in the summer to create an inspiring look, it’s important to amp up your outfit with a standout piece. With its eye-catching color and laid back look, a colored short is the perfect item to accomplish this task. From Bermuda pastels to mini neons, J.Crew has an array of colored shorts that should fit your aesthetic.
If your budget doesn’t allow you to run out and pick up your pair of colored shorts, try getting crafty with an “old” pair of colored denim and some scissors. Urban Outfitters has an array of bright bottoms on sale. Pick up a pair or two for half the asking price, grab your scissors and create your new colored shorts.
