Denim

Update: This post has been updated on July 2, 2016. Scroll down to see the new adds.

Reinventing denim is not an easy task, but somehow the fashion industry manages to come up with new trends and variations season after season. A few trends from the last couple years have been: distressed/destroyed, ombré, floral print and pastels for example. Star print has been quite popular lately as well (we have written about Current/Elliott‘s star printed denim shorts here). Last year they also released a super chic semi-sheer star-print skinny jean which I loved! The print instantly adds interest to the outfit and takes this jeans from plain ordinary to fashionably chic. But $220? Designer denim sure isn’t for everyone’s wallet.

Luckily, we have a few brands from more affordable sectors that have also incorporated the star print trend.

InStyle’s July issue features some of the best shorts of the season, but they must not have seen this patriotic pair by Current/Elliott! The classic wash and length makes them incredibly versatile, not to mention how cute the subtle sandblasted star pattern is when paired with a simple t-shirt and flat sandals. But if wearing denim shorts all summer long isn’t the most practical for your lifestyle, perhaps you could invest in a less expensive pair to wear during all your 4th of July festivities. Scroll down to see our best find yet!

Lucky Brand “Riley” Star-Print Frayed Shorts

Now that you’ve seen this pair by Lucky Brand, and have stars in your eyes, what will the rest of your outfit look like? You’ve got so many great options! I’d suggest starting with a knit top or blouse in a personally flattering shade of red, dark blue or gray and add accessories in your favorite metallic shade. Maybe it’s an armful of silver bangles or perhaps some thin gold hoops? Either way, it’s best to select more understated pieces to keep the look elegant and not costumey. Lastly, finish the outfit with some nautical-inspired wedges, boat shoes or your favorite causal footwear… and most importantly, relax and have fun!

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?

If there was ever a way to wear animal print and look both modern yet elegant, it’s with these faded leopard print jeans by Current/Elliott. They seem to convey a sense of confidence without being overly flashy. Wear them with a simple, solid-color top in a neutral such as white or black and keep your accessories paired down to just one standout piece such as an oversized watch or cocktail ring. Can’t think about spending $200 on a pair of printed jeans? That’s OK, we have a great option for those of us who love denim, but just want to have a little fun with this trend. Check out the details below!
