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.
Nothing embodies the spirit of spring to us more than a soft, muted pair of colored jeans. If styled the right way they can give any casual look an instant touch of chic luxe. We absolutely love this outfit by Maddison Rothery of Fiction Living. Her muted mauve jeans by Citizens Of Humanity are perfection paired with a white vintage blouse and cropped bronze vest. The leopard print clutch and black studded booties add just the right amount of edge to the overall soft color palette. You can easily take this look into evening by adding an oversized boyfriend blazer in a light earth tone to keep it soft and feminine or give some edge by throwing on a biker-style leather jacket.
