Fashion in the summertime is a great time to showcase your simpler style. With the need for less substance, you are able to wear just a few pieces that truly express your fashion sense. For a few seasons now, colored denim has been trending, but a fun twist on this super cute look has now made its way into the fashion scene—printed denim. I spotted this Fashionista in her feminine floral denim shorts and metallic Sperry Top-Siders and was immediately drawn to her fresh summer style. Paired with a neutral top, this look is a fun spin on your basic shorts and a T-shirt!

CF: What trend do you think you’ll be wearing a lot of this summer?
JH: I already have a very nautical mindset for this summer, but I also love anything high-waisted.

How To: Don’t be afraid to get a little funky with your denim selection! Try a fun print or pattern on your shorts and jeans. Floral patterns can be overwhelming and bold, so opt for a more subtle color palette with a neutral tank top and you’ll be on your way to sporting this adorable look yourself. Add a nautical piece with an edgy spin, like this pair of metallic Sperry Top-Siders. Once you have put all of the pieces together, this summer style can easily transform from day to night with the addition of a cozy cardigan!
