STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: White Hot in Daring Denim

Style Advice of the Week

Denim jackets and white bottoms: two timeless summer staples that create the perfect breezy outfit when paired together. This Fashionista flawlessly executes the trendy duo with a medium wash jean jacket, white chino shorts and black accents.

The denim jacket is both practical and adorable, whether cropped, oversized, distressed, dyed or bleached. From super destroyed jeans to jeggings to mini skirts to teeny tiny cutoffs, denim fads have rotated in and out of the fashion world since the stiff fabric was originally used in the workplace over two centuries ago. Although this Fashionista’s jacket is traditional, without embellishments or flourishes, you can add a little flare to the piece with additions like feminine lace inserts or a cool patriotic print like this one. The number one rule about rocking a denim top is to stay away from the dredded “Canadian Tuxedo” fashion faux pas (wearing double denim in the same wash). As this Fashionista proves, the pop culture classic jacket looks rad paired with crisp white shorts.

The colorless item is a perennial summer favorite, whether in white denim, a light linen-blend or pretty lace. Besides matching just about every kind of top and cute for just about every occasion, the addition of a white short instantly ups the chic factor to any ensemble. Both white shorts and pants alike are sleek and versatile must-haves this season. Avoid going from classy to trashy with white bottoms resembling a ‘90s jean mini or itty-bitty daisy dukes.
