What To Wear With: Denim Shorts (So You Won't Look Like Daisy Duke)
May 8, 2009
Perhaps it's because of Rebekah's Florida tan that I now have summer on the brain. So even though we can't bust out the warm-weather attire quite yet, it's helpful to know what to pair with those denim shorts once the temperature finally breaks 75.
Celebs from Holmes to Lohan are showing up in these summer of love throwbacks, but that doesn't mean they're pulling them off in the most flattering way. In order to do it right, you should find a pair that's a little distressed, and not too tight or too short (translation: pockets hanging out = tacky). Wear with a loose-fitting button-down for a casual yet grown-up vibe. Go flat in the footwear department with some simple, embellished sandals – high heels will cause the Daisy Duke effect.
Accessorize with a silk scarf that you can either tie over your hair or on the handle of a roomy canvas tote. Grab a pair of Ray-Bans (or any of the trendy sunglasses out now) and a sporty watch and you're perfectly dressed for a lazy day.
