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?
For my going out look this week, I wanted to do something inspired by Olivia Palermo and some preppy, yet fashionable looks that I have seen lately. I chose the Black Orchid Noah Jeans in Groovy Baby as I adore these jeans so much with the fun patchwork detailing and then paired them with this Topshop metallic cami to add some fun and layered a Topshop white blazer over the top to smarten it up. To give it some edge, I went with these Oscar de la Renta brogues as I think they are so smart and chic, then finished it off with a Balenciaga Papier tote and some subtle statement making blue pearl earrings. I definitely love this look and would wear it myself if I had the pieces!
Though it is 4th of July weekend, I didn’t want to do a look for say a pool party, but one for a nighttime bbq. The High Rise in Black Rebel is one of my favorite styles that Rag & Bone has come out with recently. They have just the right amount of distressing for a casual look for men and they will look better as you wear them out more and more, which is why I chose them to style this week.
For the overall look, this is something that I would wear and have worn. I paired the jeans with a longline t shirt from TOPMAN because there is this edge that it adds to looks that I find very unique at the moment. To layer over and add more casualness, a sweater by AMI. I chose green just to add subtle contrast to the overall monochrome look. Then to finish the outfit off, a hat by Stussy and a pair of the new Yeezy 350 Boosts. The updated moccasin vibe mixed with the concept of a running shoe gives this this look a vibe that they can only do.
The 4th of July is just around the corner and as we do every year, each of us here have put together a look centered around red, white and blue in celebration. There are two women’s outfits and one man’s look, each involving red, white or blue denim. Happy 4th everyone! Wear your denim well!
I decided to go for a pool or beach inspired look this year since the weather is abnormally hot over here in the UK. This one will be perfect for those of you in the warmer states right now! I went for a pair of Isabel Marant Etoile Denim Shorts in red as my base and then went all out with this cool GUESS American Triangle Bikini Top to really add some flare! Since it can get chilly with the wind or some of us like to be a little more covered, I chose a Romwe White Kimono to layer over the top and some Charlotte Russe White Wooden Platforms to match. Finally, I finished it off with some patriotic US Flag Sunglasses for some fun and some Blue Glitter Nail Polish.
When I think 4th of July, the first thing that always comes to mind is a pool party and BBQ. Especially being in California, the weather is usually always in the mid-90s or higher during that day. So swimming trunks are definitely a standard choice when coming up with a look for it. I went for a pair of shorts by Quality Peoples shorts to pair with a white denim shirt from MOTHER and a simple grey tank by The Idle Man. Then to finish the look off a pair of slides by Adidas to carry on the the pool party vibe. How many of you guys like to keep it simple during the holiday?
My 4th of July plans are always pretty laid back and casual, so I wanted to style a look that would be comfortable for a low key gathering but still polished. I chose these boyfriend style jeans from FRAME, since boyfriend jeans have a great casual fit. I paired them with this gingham check blouse from Equipment because I think the gingham is such a classic print and is so perfect for summer. I loved the idea of keeping the look all blue, so I added a bit of a bolder shade with these Aquazzura blue espadrille sandals. For accessories, I finished with this woven straw clutch from LAGGO and these nude cat eye frames from Ray-Ban.
