It’s that time of the year again! The time when we all get together, light up the barbecue, and get our patriotism on to celebrate our country’s Independence Day. Okay, so we still have a month to go… but there’s some serious planning to do! Like what to wear, of course! Now, if you’ve been with us for more than a minute, then you know where we’re going with this. Yep! Lucky for us one of the hottest trends of the season is the American Flag itself. From graphic tees, denim shorts, even shoes—your bound to find something with an image of it somewhere on it, and in some cases all over!
What’s our ideal 4th of July outfit? Something with a retro feel like a pair of ultra distressed high-waisted denim short shorts styled with anything sleeveless from graphic tanks to chambray shirts (perfect for the warm weather), and to finish it off a pair of killer platform shoes with a chunky heel.\

The always stunning Magdalena Frackowiak headlines the latest campaign for Reserved spring summer 2011. The Polish beauty sports some pretty sexy denim looks from denim short shorts (a must-have for the season), relaxed light-washed denim work shirts, and denim jackets. We are really loving the summer-ready feel with all the swimwear separates thrown into the mix. We’re not going to deny that we absolutely adore the slight bohemian feel (as you probably know by now, we’ve been on a boho fix lately) added by all the great accessories from the braided belts, ditsy floral scarves and exaggerated sun hats. All we have to say is that with campaigns like this tantalizing us summer can’t come soon enough!
For full coverage of the campaign including interviews with Magdalena check out the Reserved website.

If you’ve been with us for a while now you know that we love a modern take on western style, and not just because it involves denim. Okay, perhaps that’s part of it, but what we really dig about the current approach to the classic look is the bohemian edge infused into it. This is exactly what we get in this editorial from the latest edition of Marie Claire shot by David Roemer and starring model Hartje Andresen. The editorial features perfectly styled denim looks including everything from a modern wide-leg denim trouser, earthy denim short shorts, and even a trendy short-sleeve denim jacket that’s perfect for summer. Leather jackets with fringe details and a heavy dose of turquoise adorned jewelry finish off the perfect western bohemian look.

We’re not surprised that among the trends that once fell in the confines of “denim don’ts” denim short shorts have come back full force. From simple and casual to something with a little bit more oomph, the fun is in how you style them. A leather jacket with a slight exaggerated shoulder, black patent leather Doc Martens, and a bold graphic tee give this fashionista’s outfit a grungy, effortlessly cool look. The sheer paneled tights and lip-shaped clutch gives her and added quirk. Want to go the toned down route? Trade in the tee for a solid formfitting tank, throw on some solid black tights and a pair of sleek high heel ankle boots and you’re good to go.
