I was one of those that said I would never wear long denim shorts again. And now here I am…… NEVER SAY NEVER! So what changed my mind? I was certain they were done in my book! I don’t know that I can give you a very clear answer. I saw these and they looked SO CUTE on-line. I loved the distressing, I loved the wash, and I loved the high-waist. And then when I saw the price, I thought I would order them and at least try them out. Many of you know that I live in the desert and so lots of warm weather. So shorts make sense where I live.
When I got them and tried them on, I was hooked. But….. I think there will be boundaries with these. I’m not sure I will ever wear them with flats or sneakers. I don’t know for sure…… it just depends! I am so short and so will always feel and look better with at least a little bit of a heel!
I feel like shorts for a minute were all SHORT, and nothing bermuda style. I don’t wear the shorter style unless I’m at the beach or lake, so I’m happy that they are making a little bit of a comeback. I have a linen printed pair that I will be posting soon! Again with these, I’ll prefer a heel.
This bermuda style is a trend this year. I would dare say, that the older you are, the less likely you’d be in wearing this style? What do you think? But……. before you make your final decision, I want to show you three different ways to wear long denim and perhaps if you’re one that thinks NO, maybe I can change your mind.
I think maybe the black denim would feel a bit more sophisticated and dressed up than a blue denim. I LOVE the idea of pairing it with this amazing white vegan leather jacket (this jacket would go on and on and on) and a graphic tee. I’ve styled this look with some very inexpensive wedges and earrings from Target!
I chose these denim shorts because I LOVE this brand’s jeans. This would be a classic denim look sort of like the pair that I’m wearing here. I love the colorful top and belt with the simple jewelry. And what about the hat? Remember a hat will take a look from FIVE to TEN…. ALWAYS! And these platform espadrilles will give you that height I was talking about, and very comfy! I actually have these and LOVE!
I had to show you some white long denim. These from CHICOS are their NO-STAIN denim and how perfect for shorts! No need to worry with this white! I’ve styled them with a most adorable striped tee and my favorite new sandals right now! This look would be called “juxtaposition” with the casual shorts and tee, with a dressier sandal. Such a CUTE long denim look!
So now how do you feel about the LONG DENIM look? Have I changed your mind? These shorts are cute as well and on the dressy side. You could almost style these as you would a pencil skirt! Wear them with a blazer and you’ll look VERY classy!
