The best part of spring is digging deep in your closet and searching for those old daisy dukes that match perfectly with a band tee for weekend wear. As the warm weather comes full circle, so does eating ice cream, strolling through the park and venturing to outdoor concerts. As Americans, we are oh-so-proud of our denim on a yearly basis, but in the spring, it not only dresses our bottom half but accessorizes our outfit as well. To update a basic t-shirt-and-jeans look, simply wear a jean jacket — and don’t worry, you will not turn out like Justin and Britney’s denim-duo on the red carpet circa 2001. Stick to no more than two denim pieces and you will look trendy, not cheesy.
For those who have more of a classic-American taste, opt for dark-wash denim shorts that sit roughly at mid-thigh. Roll them up a couple of times and pair with a pastel blouse and navy blue flats for a vacation-ready look. For those a bit more on the wild side, take out your old daisy dukes. But this time, rip up the bottom half. For inspiration, go to runwaydreamz.com and make them your own by gluing on buttons, patches or beads, and pair with a cut-off vintage tee for an eclectic, carefree impression.
