Statement Shorts

One of the hugest trends for this upcoming summer is statement shorts. Whether it is tie-dye, tribal print, or lace, denim shorts are no longer just the essential addition to an outfit with a really cute top, but are now taking the stage themselves! Here are some of my favorite looks.

Although studs aren’t really my thing, I do adore the not-too-over the top tie-dye and distressing. This would look super cute with a feminine yet trendy bustier on top.

Tribal printed shorts. This trend is all over this season. Tone down the bold print with a simple tank or oversized tee on top. This leaves a lot of room to play with jewelry! You can either take the natural route, or glam it up with bright metals.

Lace detailing leaves so much room for creativity! You can either keep this look soft by playing into the femininity of the lace, or make it edgy by going off of the distressed detailing that comes along with most denim shorts. I love the idea of mixing hard and soft, and obviously this look would be perfect topped off with a pair of Jeffrey Campbells.
