THOSE SUMMER (DATE) NIGHTS

Happy Friday, fashion friends! This short week flew by and now it’s time for all things date night & fun in this amazing heat wave we are having (finally!) I am all about any excuse to wear jean shorts and that’s what I am discussing today. How to dress up your Summer denim and make it date night appropriate.

The boyfriend short, which essentially is just a slouchy version of the normal jean short, is a trend I am loving right now. We all know I love love the high waisted trend, but I also love anything comfy too. These Rag & Bone are exactly that. I love the front button detailing and mini rolled hemline. I paired them with a simple white tank from Topshop (this tank is amazing, I have it in 3 colors!) For daytime, I would so rock just this tank + short combo, but since we are talking date night, I dressed it up by adding on this end-all-be-all jacket from Rebecca Taylor. I got this fabulousness right before Christmas as we were headed to Portland and I needed a cute option for layering. Lucky for you all, it’s on super sale! The embroidery and fringe detailing is so so fun! I just got it in black too because it fits to perfection and is just a fab piece. By simply adding on the jacket, my look instantly becomes finished enough to wear out at night.

You can also dress up your jean shorts by kicking up your accessories. Instead of going with a big carryall, choose something small and feminine. I went with my mini Marcie Chloe in grey (I can’t stop this color!) It’s such a great neutral that goes with so much. For shoes, make sure you go with heels, otherwise you just look too casual and daytime. To make the white of my tank pop, I went with my Christian Louboutin simple pumps. These are a Summer fave for sure! To finalize my look, I threw on this super fab statement necklace from Natalie B. I mean, how fun? For sunnies I wanted to keep with the grey tones, I went with my silver mirrored lens Illesteva’s.

Now on to my cute husbands look. I adore that super skinny, beat up denim is all the rage for guys right now! I found these by Topman at Nordstrom. I already am obsessed with Topshop for myself, so I am loving that the men’s choices are just as on point and fab. I grabbed this shirt from them too. Simple and super lightweight, I just like that it’s almost chambray but not. For shoes, I wanted him to match me (obviously), so I went with these Prada grey loafers. You cannot beat the luxeness (not a real word, but if you haven’t caught on, I like to make up my own often) of Prada leather!

Boyfriend shorts are so fun to throw on when you just feel like being more relaxed, but also want to look cute. For daytime, grab a tee or fun button down knotted in the front and you are good to go. Have fun playing with washes. The lighter the better when it comes to Summer denim! There is nothing more luxe than dark denim, but in the hotter temps, it’s always fun to switch it up and go lighter.

Here are some more boyfriend shorts and a couple pairs of men’s denim that I have my eye on:

1.Current/Elliott 2. AMO 3. RES 4. Rag & Bone 5. Levi’s 6. James Jeans

7. Jean Shop   8. AGOLDE   9. Topman

I hope you all enjoy your first June weekend! After being apart last weekend, my husband and I have a jammed pack weekend of “us” activities! Cheesy, but true! Happy shopping!

    Both looks are so chic and stylishly put together for an awesome date night out. I can’t wait for the next date night out with my Hubby. Hopefully, I can get him into an amazing pair of skinny denim like the Topman pair your guy’s rocking!
