As summer comes to a close, we’re having a hard time accepting the fact that we will soon have to retire our beloved denim cutoffs and midriff baring tops. On a brighter note, the fall season is fast approaching, and while we would love to bask in the sun all day, we must admit it feels good to welcome the crisp clean autumn air. Not to mention the return of trench coats, knit sweaters, boots and darker/richer color denim; key essentials that every fall wardrobe needs. But until the time comes for you to make the change, transition your beloved denim high-waisted shorts from summer to fall by pairing it with a pussy bow blouse (as shown below). For cooler days throw on a pair of opaque tights under shorts to keep your legs warm. And if shorts aren’t your thing dress up a pair of your favorite bell bottoms jeans with an ultra cool 70’s ruffled shirt for a retro-chic effect. Who knew seasonal changes could be this easy?!

Without a doubt one thing that makes denim so unique is it’s ability to transcend season, after season. And one key denim staple that no wardrobe should be without is a denim jacket. Its the perfect traditional garment that can take any look, during any season, and give it a perfect casual-cool type of sophistication . We are absolutely enamored with this look by Aimee Song of Song of Style—it’s the perfect example of how a classic denim jacket can be styled into a totally modern ensemble. The denim really helps to break up what would otherwise be a very busy outfit by anchoring the look together. And though it might serve itself more for cooler weather we absolutely love the way Aimee has given it yet another twist by layering the shearling jacket over it. Want to transition this look into summer? Start by nixing the shearling, roll the sleeves on the denim jacket up slightly, and toss your hair into a modern messy bun.
