We’re crushing hard on Moscow style blogger and personal shopper Alexandra Osina (of Styled By Alexandra) ‘s fall denim look right now. She mixes denim shorts, jackets, and skirts with unexpected pieces and to create quirky, flirty autumn ensembles that get awesome marks across the board. Check out her recent outfits below and get a quick lesson in her unique approach to denim styling.
The look: Sweater with medium-above-the-knee denim skirt
Where to wear it: Cute look for the office and a meeting over coffee with a client.
Tip: Hem lengths are key in pulling this off. The skirt should fall above the knees (but no shorter) and the sweater should fall just below the waistline (but not shorter). The fullness of the skirt keeps things casual and chic.
The Look: Denim sequined shorts with denim workshirt & tights
Where to wear it: A great look for shopping and hanging out with friends.
Tip: Switch the playful coat for a sharp blazer for a night-friendly look.
The Look: Denim workshirt over flirty lace dress and denim leggings
Where to wear it: Perfect for date night!
Tip: When the weather gets colder, mix in a faux-fur stole and metallic jewelry.

For a little bit of a flare, amp up your denim shorts and cut-offs with some sequins, studs, fringe, and trims (even Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s a fan). We like a little sparkle and shine sometimes, but it’s all too easy to get a pair that’s gaudy–and not in a not-cute way. To save you time, here are nine pairs of embellished shorts for you to wear come summer…or springtime, if you’re so lucky!
1. Joe’s Jeans Sequin Shorts 2. Siwy Camilla Cut-Off Shorts 3. Black Orchid Denim Shorts
4. RUNWAYDREAMZ Studded Short 5. Textile Elizabeth and James Short 6. J Brand Leather Trim Shorts
7. Iro Light Blue Embroidered and Studded Shorts
8. Levi’s Studded Shorts
9. MOTO Sparkle Hotpants

We love this editorial featuring Erin Wasson in Elle France, wearing some super luxe denim shorts that we wouldn’t mind including in our closets this fall. One pick was a shredded, stapled, pinned pair by Balmain, and another was a glittering sequin-encrusted selection from Zadig and Voltaire. Metallic accents matched with mild hues and thick cozy knits are an absolute must-wear for fall, combining the need for comfort and style into one seriously hot ensemble. Take a hint from these looks below!
