Fashion Test Drive- Denim Bermuda Shorts

I tend to avoid trends. As I have gotten older, I find my inspiration in honing my individual style. Verse blinding following what fills the racks of stores. But sometimes a look sparks your interest, and you all know, I am a sucker for anything denim. The denim trend for summer '18? Bermuda shorts. I like mine hitting right above the knee, loose in the legs, and tight at the waist. This style harps back to the early 90's- think Calvin Klein ads and Cindy Crawford. The length of this cut could be considered modest, but with a pair of heels, I find this look very sexy. 
I love these shorts as an alternative to beachy Levi's cut-offs. They are more practical for city life, but still keep you cool in those summer temps. These shorts work not only for LA girls, but my NYC babes as well (who deal with subways, cat calls, and miles of walking). I typically don't take style notes from the Kardashians, but they were some of the first sporting this look. I love how these shorts hug my curves, and highly my feminine silhouette. I paired it with a skin-tight tank, vintage clip on earrings and simple slides. The versatility of these shorts too give them my stamp of approval. Add a chic stiletto and a silk camisole and this outfit is perfect for an evening out. 
My shorts are from Topshop, but you could definitely cut a vintage pair of Levi's into this style. I have a white jeans from the Rose Bowl Flea Market that I am tempted to chop. I think with any trends, if they inspire you- try them out. Don't invest into the real deal, unless you know you will wear it over and over again. Personal style has room for experimentation (just look at some of my past blog posts). Have fun with it, and it will help you hone in on what clothing makes you feel like YOU. I did not expect to love these shorts so much, but sometimes the trendy can fit in in your wardrobe.
