Now that we’re really in the thick of summer, you need denim that’s going to keep you cool as well as provide an easy transition from a day at the beach to a night out with friends. Colored denim shorts are the perfect option, because they make your bikini top pop and can be accented with killer shoes and luxe accessories for your night on the town. Below are six of our favorite pairs.

’90s trends are back in action, from later version of the hammer-pant to acid-wash and pastel hair dye. Flipping through old magazines from the ’90s is both a bizarre and exciting experience (unless you were just being born in 1996, and weren’t a tween in the age of some of TV’s best programs ever…). As sentimental as we wish we could get, one look at what fashion editorials in the ’90s were actually passing off as fashionable is enough to hit your gag reflex. Check out this mustard-yellow denim-on-eyelet-cotton ensemble, for instance. It means well, with its spring hues and the model’s confusing pose (laughing, itching—what is she doing?), but the end product looks more like a kid’s TV show host than street-savvy.
But then again, that more or less sums up the ’90s, doesn’t it? Stay tuned for more days-gone-by denim coverage! We’re more or less addicted to it.
