How to Style Your Vintage Denim Shorts?

Posted by HeyCarson on

Vintage denim fashion is cool and easy. You don’t have to think much before pulling on denim shorts. Just throw on a comfy cutout tank or slip on something floral with a nice pair of flats, and you are all set for the day! But you can also mix it up with interesting pieces to create beautiful outfits with a dressed up look. It is perfect for anything from a casual beach day to a lunch date or drinks with your girls. If you need a helping hand to rustle up something chic, we have put together a few inspirational styling tips to rock your jean shorts and make Team Denims proud!

Easy Tips to Style Denim Shorts

  • Pair your high-waist vintage denim shorts with a front-knot, breezy floral shirt for a sexy, cozy ensemble. And finish it off nicely with a bow band to rock the look effortlessly chic!
  • For casual street style, choose a striped t-shirt and tuck it into your denim shorts with frayed hems. Put on your favourite pair of sneakers or strapped sandals to complete the clean and simple outfit with style. If your shorts are slightly on the shorter side, try balancing them out with a breathable top that has a bit more fabric for a refreshing outlook.
  • Want a classy look? Team your jeans shorts with a hip-skimming blazer, a casual top underneath, and a pair of pretty pumps. Or, you can also add a silk or flowy top to get a beautiful and cool result.
  • Dress up your shorts by trading the flip flops with something unexpected like clogs, wedges, a kitten heel mule or any other feminine shoe. Top it off with a bold lip, a peachy coral, or just about any of your favourite shades and a cute sling!

What about Styling Vintage Skirts and Jeans?

Styling Vintage Skirts

If you love Denim and want something other than a pair of shorts, jump on (or into) a vintage denim skirt without a second thought. You have a multitude of options like knee-length button-front denim skirts, denim skirts that stretch below your knees, A-line or form-fitting skirts, and more.

Pairing them with a white statement T-shirt works on any day. And for some finishing tune-ups and touches, you can add a stack of colourful bracelets and gladiator sandals. You can also layer it with a denim shirt or jacket of a different shade than your skirt and choose a pair of ankle boots for a cool outfit.

You can start building your collection by trying on our comfy Santana Jeans vintage skirt made in Canada.

Rocking Vintage Jeans

A universal truth about jeans: High-rise vintage jeans walk hand in hand with crop tops.

Other than this, you can style them with classic trench coats, animal printed pieces, long cardigans, pretty baggy tops with knotted lower hemlines, and badass bomber or leather jackets with chic cami tops underneath.

If you are more on the sporty side, choose a frayed light blue vintage pair with a band tee and a pair of sneakers. You can also layer it with a shirt tied around the waist.

Team up your vintage jeans with lovely peasant blouses, front-knot shirts, off-the-shoulder tops, or a chunky knit sweater for more feminine looks.
