This weeks review is on a pair of the new Siwy Alexa cut off shorts in Love Song. I got sent these to review by Siwy and I am so glad I did! I wouldn’t usually pick a pair of shorts this bold or with this kind of print but that’s one thing I love about reviewing. I get to try out a lot of denim that I wouldn’t necessarily pick as my first choice.
I wanted to start by saying that I absolutely love these denim shorts! I love everything about them! The woolen patches I didn’t think I would like that much, but they have actually turned out to be my favourite thing about the shorts. They add so much life and fun to the look and I think it makes them very unique. The zipper up the side is functional too and opens right up to the top. I think this really makes the shorts special too, only one side has the zipper so that’s definitely different!
As for the fit, I would actually have to say with 100% honesty that Siwy shorts are my favourite denim shorts. I’ve tried a lot of denim shorts but the thing that draws me towards Siwy is how well they fit me and how different each pair is. Siwy as a brand is really adventurous and it suits my personality really well. I’m not so much a fan of the padded round pockets on the full length jeans but on shorts they are perfect and really flattering which I love. The edges are always frayed too and Michelle isn’t ever afraid to experiment with her ideas and that’s fantastic.
Aside from the woolen patches on these Alexa shorts, the Love Song wash is actually beautiful. It’s a really nice mid blue with lighter areas in places and it’s very pretty. I think the best colour for denim shorts is always a mid to light blue wash, it just suits the Summer season more. The fact that the woolen patches are brown and cream as well, really makes these shorts easy to pair with a lot of my clothes. I love the Autumn tones such as browns and creams and since these shorts are really bold on their own, you can keep the rest of the outfit simple and still look dressed up.
I can say that these do run true to size, I took a size 27 in them which is my normal Siwy size and they fit perfectly, so definitely take your regular Siwy size. The denim is also quite sturdy and strong but soft at the same time. It’s got the right combination of all aspects which makes it wonderful. If you have never tried any Siwy shorts before then I would definitely recommend you do. You will understand why so many celebs choose to wear them and why they are so popular! In fact I can’t wait to spot a celebrity in these exact shorts, I think they are going to be popular along with the leather patch ones! Buy these shorts online at Shopbop.com.
Yay! A Kate Moss sighting. She was caught leaving her hotel in Sydney, Australia with husband Jamie Hince. She wore her favorite pair of Siwy jeans for the day. She chose the Hannah in Surrender. I think this is a great look. One being Kate is wearing color! I think the red is great with the jeans. Now if only we can see her wearing some blue jeans with a colored tee.
At first when I saw these photos I thought she was wearing her khaki suede Balmain jeans. I think this look would look equally as amazing with those. The khaki and the red would play off each other really well. You can click here to purchase Siwy jeans at BlueHeavenBoutique.
Rachel Bilson was seen playing a little hiding game with the paparazzi in Los Feliz, California as she made her way in to the Mustard Seed restaurant. I absolutely love this outfit that Rachel has on. I love that she paired the bright blue shirt with her Siwy Shorts. She is wearing the Camilla in Surrender.
I even like them with the boots. Usually I am not a fan of the heel-less ankle boot, but it really works here. I find that they shorten the legs, but not here on Rachel. Click here to purchase shorts at Singer22 for $152.
Heidi Klum is really taking advantage of her summer in New York. She has been spotted in some shorts quite a few times. This time she chose her Siwy Camilla Shorts in Desert Rose again. I really love the look of shorts with a loose tee. Especially when the tee is just skimming above the shorts, like how it fits Heidi.
I just love the color scheme of this outfit. The taupe-ish/gray colored tee just goes so well with the pink of the shorts and the brown of the belt and sandals. Heidi makes me think of Elle Macpherson in this look. Funny enough being that they both have the title of “The Body.” I think they would both look amazing in it.
