After all of that Coachella inspiration, we're showing you how to make the perfect pair of denim cut-off shorts. It's simple; all you need are a pair of jeans, scissors, measuring tape, and a marking pencil. Follow our quick and easy steps and you'll have your own pair of frayed shorts in no time!
We're going to be continuing on our denim bent this week, delivering a slew of celebrity inspiration, new season must-haves and nifty how-tos. To start things off we thought we should call in the experts, and when it comes to the love of denim you don't get any more dedicated than Tash Sefton and Elle Ferguson from They All Hate Us. Elle's collection of denim shorts alone should qualify her for some sort of official title (did see her personal collection?). So, we put the hard word on the TAHU girls to share their all-time favourite styles, the hottest denim investments to make this season and their genius jean-styling tricks. Get the down-low, inside.
You might know her as the leggy one from the They All Hate Us duo, but let us introduce you to visual merchandiser and style blogger, Elle Ferguson — and her fabulous wardrobe. Just like the closet of her stylish co-hort Tash Sefton who we profiled last week, Elle's own wardrobe is full to the brim with killer one-offs, so-special accessories and nifty ideas for storing, organising and displaying her best buys. And yes, before you ask, she does have an entire rack dedicated to denim shorts. Keep clicking to get the VIP tour. . .
In today's DIY, we're showing you how to make the perfect pair of denim cut-off shorts to wear now and through Summer. It's simple; all you need are a pair of jeans, scissors, measuring tape, and a marking pencil. Follow our quick and easy steps and you'll have your own pair of frayed shorts in no time!
Just as your trusty skinnies plugs that what-on-earth-do-I-wear hole in your Winter wardrobe, a pair of denim cut-off shorts will do exactly the same for your Summer dressing routine. Super-versatile, utilitarian and always in a style, these hard working puppies deserve pride of place in every essential wardrobe. If you've already got the classic blue-wash base covered, may we suggest you try on a pair of white, black or even camouflage cut-offs this season? Step inside to see our top ten denim short styles from the brands that do it best.
Leave it to Olivia Palermo to breathe fresh life into the most basic of closet staples. The up-town girl hit the NYC streets over the weekend in not one but two utterly chic off-duty looks; both of which pulled from her back-catalogue of stylish basics. The clever bit is how she made such simple separates look so darn good. The key? Classic styles in neutral colour-ways, worn together in an un-fussy way. No tricky layering or accessorising required! Take one pair of denim shorts, one pair of mid-blue skinnies, two pair of neutral ballet flats, a pair of catseye shades, an oversized tote, one striped tee, one camisole and one (we can assume) cashmere sweater and voila! The ultimate weekender wardrobe. Consider next Saturday/Sunday's outfits sorted!
We just spotted Kate Moss's latest A/W campaign with Mango — her third with the Spanish retailer — and guess what? Kate looks every bit the part of autumnal-inspired cool, making us wish it was chilly enough to slip into our own denim-and-boyfriend blazer combos, too. As part of Mango's 107-page Fall catalogue, the British beauty poses in a plethora of classic cold weather wares, like a textured white sweater paired with siren red cigarette jeans, and edgier takes on layering, like moto-chic leather jacket styled with the quintessential LBD and cap-toe pumps. Bottom line: Mango's tran-seasonal pieces are the kind of staples every girl should have at the top of their must-have list, and who better to show them off than Kate? There's only one bricks and mortar Mango outpost in Australia, so we're broadening our options by browsing the best looks online.
This week we were treated to a slew of Aussie expats showing off their style the world over. Cate Blanchett looked as elegant as ever in Givenchy's latest Resort offerings in NYC. Also in the Big Apple was Nicole Trunfio who put a demure spin on her sexy leather mini, while over the pond in London Kylie Minogue gave a gilded edge to her ladylike Stella McCartney shift. Want to know who else made the grade? Step this way to snoop this week's top ten, best dressed list.
This week's Top Ten best dressed list is coming to you courtesy of Summer in New York City. Celebrities were out and about in their best off-duty, effortless-yet-somehow-still-perfectly-styled ensembles. Denim was of central importance, with Alexa Chung re-working her too-cute denim onesie while Elizabeth Olsen and Katie Holmes both perked up their go-to denim with bright-as button downs. Miranda Kerr was looked effortlessly chic (again) in a pair of Céline printed pants, and Anne Hathaway's Prabal Gurung gown was a highlight of the week. Want more Big Apple approved style? Step this way!
Pop has been on Miranda Kerr watch all week, spotting the Aussie supe' out and about in NYC almost every day. We've saved up these sartorial gems for today's Week In Chic round-up. Whether it's Orlando Bloom on her arm or her minimal tote bag, Miranda always nails the model-off-duty looks. Special attention should be paid to her accessorizing prowess, with MK's classic fedora, simple two-strap sandals, raffia pumps and oversized frames providing an on-trend updates to her otherwise timeless separates. Step inside to see how Miranda managed to look so darn good, five days running.
