I wanted to do something more Western and Boho inspired for my weekend going out look this week. I’ve been living in my vintage Levi’s 501 cut off denim shorts lately, they seem to be all I wear, which is why I chose them as a base for this look as I wore something similar to this on my personal blog. I paired them with a camel tank top and a River Island kimono to really give it some flare, then I chose the Kurt Geiger Karen clog heels to lengthen the legs. For the accessories, I chose an Art Youth triangle ring, a grey stone ring, a BP straw fedora and some Tommy Hilfiger aviators. I think the different elements of brown here really tie this outfit together!
I have been wanting to do a look with a pair of RtA jeans for quite a while. I always thought they had great blue styles that have an edge to them that is unique to the brand itself. You can tell a pair of RtA jeans by just the wash alone, like the Skinny in Light Used here.
For my ‘Weekend’ look, I kept things casual in a different way, yet still feeling like myself. I didn’t want to go for the usual solid t shirt, so I went for an Iron Maiden band tee to layer over a longline tank by The Idle Man. I then chose a pair of the Nike SFB boots as my choice of footwear. There is this vibe that these boots give to the look that nothing can be compared too. They are casual yet have this edge that they give to the look that I love. Of course to finish it all off, a wide brimmed hat by Goorin Bros. I have this hat personally and it is one of my favorite things ever. It’s perfect for the summer. How many of you guys would style your jeans like this?
For my weekend going out look, I chose this 7 For All Mankind braided skirt in vivid medium indigo because I love how the braid trim on the pockets and waistband add a nice touch of detail and interest. I chose this off the shoulder cropped white blouse from Tibi because it is a great updated version of a crisp white button down. Then I added these Alexandre Birman snake print platforms as I love the 70s style vibe they give the outfit. Lastly, I finished with these Oliver Peoples sunglasses and added a touch of color with this wine colored bucket bag from Sophie Hulme.
Shorts season is here and one brand that makes some awesome washes that scream the new season, is AG Jeans. I chose their Bonnie shorts in three different washes to style in looks that breathe the easy vibe that the shorts give off. Whether you choose to raid the flea markets in the coming months or just head to the many parties, these are looks that are perfect for any of those occasions.
An all black look is something that most people tend to avoid this time of the year as wearing all black can lead to being overheated. But when wearing lightweight pieces, it is something that can work. I went for The Bonnie in 8 Years Midnight Drift to pair with a linen button front shirt from Equipment. The faded and whiskered details add a bit more to the classic pairing. I then wanted to keep that ease to the outfit by adding a pair of slides from Loeffler Randall and bag from Sensi Studios to carry all the new buys for when you hit the boardwalk in this look.
A post about denim shorts is not complete without the classic lightwashed blues. For this one, I went with The Bonnie in 14 Years Sundrenched to pair with a striped Equipment shirt. I wanted to go for something that had an Alexa Chung sense with this look here. She is definitely a fan of the pairing of the combination as she has been seen in it numerous times. I didn’t want to go with Alexa’s typical accessories choice though. For the shoes, I went for some high-top Chucks, and for the bag, a simple tote by Monserat De Lucca.
Now for something slightly dressier, in an Isabel Marant sense. I paired The Bonnie in White Restored with a slouchy sweater by Tibi. Then to keep that Marant vibe going, a chose a pair of the Minnetonka boots and as her looks are not done without some key accessories, I went for a belt by Bottega Veneta and classic Ray-ban aviators to finish it all off.
-How many of you are excited to be pulling out your shorts?
