Denim Shorts

Untitled-2
???, stockholm street style

Maybe it's because I'm starting to get ready for warmer weather or maybe it's just wanting to step a bit out of my comfort zone but I think I'm ready to try to whole denim-shorts-with-tights thing. I hadn't really given it much thought but upon looking through my street style folder I realized I had saved quite a few shots like these. I guess I was trying to tell myself something! I'm pretty sure I have an old pair of Levis stuffed in a box with some summer clothes somewhere in the attic. If it wasn't so cold up there I'd go fish them out now. ;)

Do it! You know you want to! Haha that's what I keep telling myself. One day I am going to bust them out. One day when it's much warmer. I'm a baby!

Denim shorts are such the rage right now (excuse my dated vocab).

Great looks. I'm trying to be brave and go for it too!

I love the darker colour shorts in TSATC's photo - I really like the others, but I've always shyed away from black tights and pale shorts as I feel too old* and not grungey enough for them... but with the darker shade and high waist they look so put together, gorgeous.

I'd also love to see you experiment with this look - could it stretch to a 'four ways'???

(*I'm 24, btw, so it's totally in my head!)

Ooh! I have the shorts in the last picture and wear them more than frequently and year round. They have my highest recommendation!

their shorts fits them very well. and vintage attire really rocks. even it is from the past, it can still influence the trend in the present and future industry of fashion and designing.

I usually hate hate hate denim shorts and then I see a picture of Effie and I'm like...ok....maybe yes!
