It’s starting to be that time of year again… The temps are getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and the hemlines are getting shorter. Dresses, crop tops, skirts, and denim are all inching just a tad bit higher and exposing a little bit more skin.
Last summer, I was all about wearing white denim in the work place. While you might think that cropped white denim should be reserved for the weekends, it’s just as easy to dress up your cropped jeans as it is to dress them down.
For a more casual weekend look, I used a few of my favorite tricks while I was getting ready … Mixing prints and wearing white on white. I paired my white cropped jeans with a white and blue striped tee and a camo jacket, finished off by a pair of nude sandals.
To take the vibe just a bit more dressy, I paired my cropped white jeans with a polka dot chiffon top (love the slight flowy peplum fit) and a linen motorcycle jacket. And when I’m trying to take my look to the next level, red lipstick and a pair of sky-high pumps are pretty much always a good idea. On a side note, this linen moto jacket is so perfect for the summer season ahead. I’m always one for layering and this super lightweight material is going to make spring and summer dressing an absolute breeze. #punintended
