The Darrell denim hooded vest, by Mike & Chris, available at SINGER22.
The Darrell denim hooded vest by Mike & Chris: it’s a little bit Ashlee Simpson and Lindsay Lohan (a couple of gals who like hoodies), and a little bit Erin Wasson for RVCA, but it’s not. I love all the detailing: trench coat styling meets leather vest. For the summer, I can see myself pairing this with my white denim for sure! For evenings out, a pair of black skinny zipper jeans would be hot. Add boots or patent stilettos on my tootsies, and I’m off for a stylish ride on the back of a motorcycle on a warm summer night.

MIKE & CHRIS Ritter Japanese Denim Cargo Micro Short. Available at SINGER22.
Whoever told you that you can’t and shouldn’t be wearing shorts this summer must live in Siberia or something. If you’re wise about it, anybody can wear denim shorts at any age, and not look silly. Remember: 50 is the new 40; 40 is the new 30; and so on. With some proper preparations, you’ll be able to tastefully rock your denim look and rack up style points from your peers. Remember, if you have bumps and veins you’d rather hide, go longer with the denim. Don’t try to hide them with stockings or leggings.
Try These Tips:
1) Groom your legs: shave, exfoliate, lubricate. Be sure to apply moisturizer on your legs immediately after patting them dry with a towel. It helps if you’re just coming out of a mild to hot shower. This will help with absorption.
2) Fake bake, if necessary. If not, try rubbing some baby oil down the front of your legs (from below the knees down to just above the feet). Carefully apply concealer (yes, makeup!) on bruises and scabs.
3) If all else fails, get your legs groomed professionally, and don’t forget the pedicure! Select a light color, which makes your feet appear tanner. Neutral, muted tones does the trick.
4) Pair your denim shorts with some fantastic pair of shoes.
