Hot Shorts: Casual day wear

As the temperatures sky-rocket, that’s your cue to try out this summer’s coolest wardrobe options. Try out something fresh and casual, like a pair of hot shorts teamed up with a cool shirt, while sticking to simple accessories to keep things from getting too wild.

1. Hot shorts:

Are you wondering what to do with those old pair of jeans that don’t look right any more? Simple, take a pair of scissors and crop your boring straight-leg pants into a pair of hot cut-offs and stitch them up for the right fit. Once you have your basic coloured shorts – black, tan and denim, you can also invest in a pair of bright coloured sporty looking shorts.

RED ALERT:

It is cool to crop your old pants but rolling them up your thighs is definitely nowhere in the trend list. You will just end up looking shabby.

Just buy a pair of shorts if you are not too confident using the scissors. Trust me there is nothing cool about DIY balloon cut-offs.

Another huge fashion crime is going out wearing cut offs that are too short. Shorts that look like underwear are not sexy. Ass on display will only make things worse for you.

2. Shirt:

With their old-school vibe and slightly rebellious sense of cool, denim cut-offs go with almost everything starting from your old tees to your crisp new shirt. Don’t be afraid to have fun with colours. Playfully coloured shirts are totally crush-worthy when teamed up with your denim cut-offs.

3. Add ons:

a) Belt:

Throw on a casual belt that looks trendy enough to go with your cut-offs. If you are wearing a billowy top make sure you put on a bigger chunkier belt to get the chic look. In case you are opting for a patterned shirt you need to keep the belt simple.

b) Trinkets:

Buy inexpensive bangles, brooches and earrings to add a pretty pop

to your cool ensemble. They’ll look especially cute with the neutrals you probably already own, like a khaki dress or a pair of navy blue Bermuda shorts.

c) Footwear:

Invest in the right footwear if you don’t wish to drag down your super cool outfit. Put on your converse to score points on the elusive comfy and cool category.
