How to do Denim Right this Summer

Hi everyone! I have been thinking about doing a post about denim for a while now, I’ve just been waiting for the right time. Summer is a perfect time to talk about denim, because there are just so many different options.

In this post, I’ll be going over how I am mixing and matching denim lately, my favorite denim pieces and more!

In the photo above, you’ll see I am pairing a white denim on the bottom, with a jean jacket on top. The jean jacket is considered to be a light wash denim, and I think it makes for a pretty bright outfit when paired with the white. Now, a darker wash jacket would work just as well with the entire outfit!

When I am mixing and matching two blue denims, I am sure to watch out because mixing similar washes is where it can start looking a little iffy. If I am going to go denim-on-denim, I usually like to pair either a dark wash with a medium one, or a light wash with a medium one. Two opposite washes can also look off (to me at least!). I think pairing denims in the same outfit was so taboo for the longest time, that it can be kind of a cool look to try if you do it right and within reason.

Below are some of my most favorite denim pieces of the season:

DENIM DISTRESSED BERMUDA SHORTS: LINK HERE

These shorts from Forever 21 are my absolute fave shorts—they’re so comfy and cute and can be dressed up or down. Plus, they eliminate chaffing that can happen between the thighs on a hot summer day (you know what I mean).

I just came across this website, xomandysue and their clothes are SERIOUSLY adorable! I will be ordering these jeans THIS WEEK! The embroidery are so cute, and brings me back to my younger years. However, I think they will be fun to dress up and I love the hem of them.

If you’re in the market for a specialty item, I think this would be a really fun purchase. No, it’s not something you’ll wear every day, but it could be a cool addition to an outfit (especially with white jeans or shorts!)

 

 

 

CHAMBRAY DRESSES!

Chambray dresses are so fun—they are the perfect mix between relaxed and casual, but still cute. I can think of so many summer occasions where a Chambray dress would work. Plus, they’re cute paired with black or brown shoes! (All from Forever 21, just search ‘Chambray dress’)!!

XOXO, Rae

    I’m a little obsessed with denim at the moment. I’ve bought two denim jackets and I really want a denim pinafore dress and dungarees so this is really helpful! Great post. I’m recently back to blogging after a break so it’d mean a lot if you went to check my recent post and left a like and comment if you enjoy! Xx
