Summer is finally reaching our Australian shores and Melbourne has some of the hottest fashion trendsÂ to keep you looking and feeling cool.
With the long, hot days ahead of us, it’s time to say goodbye to turtle necks, so long scarfs and hello to shorts and singlets.
A common fashion staple worn all to often by females and males alike, is denim.Â However denim shouldnâ€™t be looked upon as a Winter staple, oh no, worn right denim can be your number one fashion friend to keep not only cool but fashionable in the summer time.
Boyfriend jeans, donâ€™t have to beÂ pushed to the back ofÂ your closet for Summer. Boyfriend jeans are one of the few styles of jeans that can be worn throughout the seasons. Their bagginess will keep you breezy unlike their skinny-leg counterparts .
Worn best with an oversized white shirt to compliment the style, or like Rihanna rock a cropped top and strappy heels to contrast the bagginess. To get Rihannaâ€™s style this summer check out Melbourneâ€™s H&M which is showcasing a variety of boyfriend styles.
A denim jacket or a denim crop, is a fresh way to add detail and texture to any outfit. The vibrant blue colours compliment almost any shade you pair it with. Chambray shirts have become a staple piece in the most fashionable women’s wardrobes. Worn all year round, they can be tied in at the waist for a cropped effect or tucked into a pair of dressy printed shorts. If you like to take risks try teaming a denim top with a denim bottom. Miranda Kerr successfully pulls off her edgy denim combo due to her contrasting choice of denim colours.
Distressed denim is a popular embellishment among many celebrities. Kim Kardashian and BeyoncÃ© are among the likes of whom have rocked the streets of Hollywood with ripped denim. Pair your distressed denim with airy fabrics like cotton or linen in light complimentary colours, or opt of a single colour outfit combo. For the perfect pair of distressed jeans check out Tiger Mist, an amazing Melbourne based online boutique. Their range is huge; from white to black, and form small to large rips.
To rock a classic pair of denim shorts this summer there are a few tips to stick by.
- Opt for a pair of shorts that fit you properly, if that means spending more on a quality pair, then go for it!
- Make sure no muffin top is spilling over the top of your shorts. This common fashion mistake is to often over looked. To cover up those bumps and lumps, high waisted shorts are highly recommend.
- Style your denim shorts with bright, bold colors. The contrasting bright colors such as red and hot pink will bring the blue out of the denim.
- Accessories your denim shorts like Alexa with chunk jewellery and large cats eye shades or opt for a thin brown belt to tie the outfit together.
We love Wrangler from Melbourne Central’s Glue store for cheeky cut-offs, or vintage jeans hacked off for a truly one off pair.
