Mhmm did I or did I not mention that it’s going to be a high waist summer for me? Here I go again with another street style post on those good ol high waist shorts…except this time they aren’t just your average style, yes everyone we’re talking two tone denim here!
Now see for shorts this idea works because as we know the current trend is all about denim, denim shirts, denim skirts and of course the infamous denim on denim combo…but let me just say, if I see a pair of jeans come out with this two tone denim look, one leg being light and the other leg dark (this of course is me assuming there isn’t already a pair out there) well I may start to worry a bit…but of course in the name of fashion and taking a fashion risk, who knows maybe I’ll get on board with that trend too!
Regardless though, these shorts are a perfect pair to rock amidst this denim craze were in. You get the best of both worlds here you have the lighter side for all you lovers of light, and then you have the darker side for all those who are lovers of the dark, and for all of you who enjoy a bit of both like myself, well then you’ve hit the jackpot! If only every pair of shorts looked this good huh?!
As I’ve mentioned in my previous shorts post, it’s quite difficult to find that perfect pair in store (hence why I did a previous DIY) so when you do it’s almost like you’ve struck gold, and with this pair I can officially say I got kinda lucky! I styled the shorts with one of my favorite T-shirts the Celine tee, which we’ve seen blasted all over the place since it’s so popular, but hey can’t say I don’t like it. I threw on a black boyfriend blazer to make this look less casual, and I accessorized with a gold choker style necklace, a gold oversized watch, and a black leather and gold chain belt, finished the look with my trusty Jeffrey Campbell boots, and carried my amazing vintage oversized clutch that I scored during a routine vintage hunt! (I will definitely be talking more vintage pretty soon, and I will be dedicating a post once a month just for my finds so stay tuned for that! ) This overall look is my go to style for summer, I just love a basic tee with a good pair of high waist shorts its simple yet chic. Combine the look with some great shoes, and maybe an accessory or two and your stylishly set!
