Summer denim is definitely playful, and we love when celebs show just how fun this season’s style can be. Beyoncé’s instagram shows her posing playfully against a beachy backdrop in the Stella McCartney Cut-out denim playsuit. She must really love this number, to post three photos of herself wearing it! For less than 1k, this one piece can be all yours, and we’d encourage similar beach babe photo-taking. Scroll to see this suit in action.

Kate Hudson is, hands down, one of our favorite celebs. Her style is always casual-cool and she looks as great in a sweatshirt as she does in an LBD. We’re feeling her outfit during a recent airport run-through. She dressed up her super simple white denim cut-off shorts and white knit top with a pop color scarf and sunnies. Grab a similar pair below.

Alessandra Ambrosio was recently seeing strolling through LA wearing a gorgeous front-slit floral skirt and a Bella Dahl Denim Bomber Jacket in “River” wash. We love the combination of a chambray jacket and a flowing, summery skirt. Some metallic arm candy and simple flat sandals round out the casual daytime look. You could also layer a swimsuit beneath rather than a tank, for a transitional daytime to beach look. What can we say? We’ve got summer fun on the brain.
Grab a Bella Dahl Denim Bomber Jacket and get the look!

Update your denim look this summer with a cuffing technique you may not have tried yet: the single fold cuff. Honestly WTF spotted this trend everywhere around the world, but it’s making waves in NYC as women become more adventurous and stray from the skinny jean trend. This cuff works best on wider leg pants, whether stovepipe style or boyfriend. Will you be trying it?
Check out Honestly WTF for more images and inspiration, and be sure to check out our video on how to cuff your jeans.
