Blue Belle

I try to avoid following the flock of fads churned out every season,  but I like the tights under shorts look that’s reemerged.  Something about the layering transforms the denim shorts from young-casual into sophisticated-cool.  The top is a Phillip Lim men’s tee.  I love the drapey pocket and loose fit.  Can you tell I enjoy playing with different shapes?

    You pull this off beautifully. I used to not adore the tights underneath shorts look, but damn, it looks fantastic on you.
    And great poses.
    Immediately I would say that you work in fashion and you know what makes outfits and models (in this case:you) look great. Are you a stylist by any chance?

    Thanks Tracey! I appreciate your comments. I’m not a professional stylist, but I do enjoy posting outfits that I’ve put together. Overall, my fashion experience includes going to fashion school, internships, and a stint with a celebrity stylist. My absolute dream job would be to style for a webshop!

    Wow, you make this trend look classy and chic :) I am not one for trends either but have been drawn to the shorts/tights look although I’m yet to wear it. Inspiring xxx

    I know what you mean about trying not to fall for trends- but I agree with you- the tights+jean cut-offs is a keeper. You look great and I love the Lim shirt.

    That top is gorgeous! I love the color and the drape.

    I’m a big fan of the tights-under-the-shorts too. Unfortunately it just got ridiculously cold here in Atlanta, so I’ll have to put that style on hold!
