SUMMER FASHION // Dress Up Cut Off Denim Shorts

summer fashion cutoff denim shorts

Cut off denim shorts — is there a more common article of clothing worn in the summer? Maybe a white tank, but denim shorts are a vital part to a summer wardrobe. You’d never go on a beach vacation or weekend away without them. But how do you wear them without looking sloppy? Easy. With a silk top, well-put-together accessories, and a mani/pedi — everyone will be asking about your casual yet chic outfit.

Elements to Dress Up your Cut Off Denim Shorts:

Cut Off Denim Shorts // Why stop at just cut-offs, and go with distressed cut-offs! These Rag & Bone JEAN Mila distressed denim shorts will fit the bill for your go-to cut-offs for the summer.

Panama Hat // Having a hat for the summer sun is a must! I tried this hat on and am in love. I’m constantly wearing a hat to the pool, beach or out on a walk, and after five years my old fedora was so misshapen it had to hit the road. This Panama hat will be its replacement.

Statement Studs // Dress up any outfit with a pair of statement studs everyone will be asking about. I love these stud earrings by Erickson Beamon.

Black Top // Having a go-to black tank like this silk cargo tank is vital to a summer wardrobe. I always end up wearing my black and white tops more than anything in the summer.

Sunglasses // These Warby Parker Boyd Sunglasses can be prescription or just regular (really awesome) sunglasses.

Cross Body Bag // I’m in love with this little 3.1 Phillip Lim Scout Cross Body Bag. Perfect for throwing in your essentials and heading out the door.

Fresh Summer Nail Polish // In the summer I love a bright color on my toes like this Orange by FACE Stockholm for J.Crew, and a light color on my nails like Punch by RGB.

Tan Sandals // If you don’t have a pair of tan sandals that go with just about anything, you should definitely find some this summer. You’ll wear them so much you’ll wonder how you ever went without. These Greneda sandals by Joie are chic, simple, and comfortable.

I’ll just add this post to my “wishlist” for the summer.

Do you have cutoffs? Do you wear them constantly in the summer? What’s your favorite way to wear them?
