As the temperature rises, so do the hemlines. And while the prospect of wearing short shorts and tank tops is welcome in the summertime humidity and heat, sometimes you want (or need!) to feel a bit more covered-up. The solution? Add a sheer, blouse-y top when wearing your favorite pair of denim shorts. Buy over-sized and tuck it in to tone down the volume. For a lot more coverage, it won’t add that much bulk or cause you to break out into heat palpitations. Win-win.

If you grew up in school uniforms and now shudder at the thought of polo shirts and khaki slacks, it might be time for you to reconsider the power and styling fun of a well-placed classic. A crisp prepster shirt or a pair of boat shoes can bring a super-wild outfit down to earth or add an extra dose of polish and Audrey Hepburn panache. Still wary? Topshop’s Denim Tie Front Shirt is a good middle ground. For $50, we love its laid-back preppiness and general versatility. In fact, we’ve come up with four ways to wear this piece–and you can surely think up more!

We love the photography blog Jak & Jil—it’s a perfect example of how “street style” photography has evolved into something both more authentic (sans-posed photos and preconceived outfits), and more intense (the shots are full of models post-show with crazy hair, and many feature European fashion week go-ers who can afford some pretty epic attire). While trends like pastel hair and gem-covered shoes may come and go as you scroll through the pages, one thing keeps popping up over and over: great ways to style denim. All cameos by this dash of instant cool spark a host of ideas about layering, cuffing, distressing, and pairing. We recommend bookmarking.
