As a fan of both bold looks and girly fashion, I am also a huge fan of the colored denim trend. There is nothing that better brightens a summer day, and a pop of color serves as a unique twist on a classic wardrobe staple. The look is easy to pull off, but more importantly, looks great on a summer tan!
While colored denim pants are a great look for the spring and even for summer internships, colored shorts are a more casual, but still great statement piece. Easier to wear in the heat than long pants, they produce the same visual effects while allowing you to keep cool. As bright colors also tend to draw attention to the areas they are worn on, colored denim shorts can also be a better alternative than skinny jeans for those who are more conscious of their lower halves.
With the entire rainbow to experiment with, there are infinite ways to customize this trend to your own likings and incorporate your own unique style. This Fashionista paired her coral denim shorts with a light blouse and Tory Burch ballet flats, and by pairing light pastels with neutral colors, she added a hint of color to her outfit while maintaining the classic, preppy look. Deep, saturated denim is perfect for Fashionistas bold enough to wear it, and matching them with complementary colors or different shades of the same hue is an easy way to color block. Bright neon shorts also look great against neutral tones, and pairing them with different neon colors is perfect for the sweet-as-candy girls looking to create a bit of shock.
For those Fashionistas that are still intimidated by colored denim, try easing into the trend! Wear different variations of colors you would already wear to create a slightly varied look while maintaining your own style. These shorts from 7 for All Mankind, for example, add just the right amount of color while staying subtle enough.
