Did you let out a sigh of relief as you said goodbye to your winter wardrobe and welcomed your spring one? I for one did. Saying goodbye has never been easier. As you indulge in your spring wardrobe admist all of the cool trends this season, it’s always great to remember classic pieces that will always be in style—no matter how many springs or summers pass. These pieces have your back when you have “nothing to wear” and can be worn many different ways. If you haven’t yet, it’s time to throw a pair of denim shorts into your collection.
While denim will always be a significant part of fashion, denim shorts have been the representative of warm weather. They give a boho vibe, remind you of fun days at the beach and lengthen your legs. Denim shorts can also be styled a variety of different ways. Instead of throwing your shorts on for a lazy day, try taking Refinery29’s advice and try them with different themes. Pair your denim shorts with a blazer for a more preppy look. The denim will cut down on the formal jacket. Pair your shorts with a spring trend like cropped tops. When wearing high-waist shorts there is no limit so get edgy and try an unconventional top. Don’t restrict your shorts to just campus wear, try them out on the town. Dress up your shorts by throwing on a pair of pointed toe stilettos. This adds just enough but not too much.
Get crazy with your shorts and go for colored or printed denim. Take notes from this Fashionista and get really creative with your shorts by adding studs or customizing them to your liking. Being creative can save you money as well. Visit your local thrift shop, find a pair of jeans that fit how you like and cut them into a quick pair of shorts. This way you can choose the length, how you want them to fit and how you want them to look. You can also find shorts already studded and customized at RunwayDreamz
