I can never spend a season without denim, and summer's main course is the denim short. I was head over heels for these in particular when I first spotted them: simple sleek black, high-waisted, not too long, not too short, and fitted everywhere except the leg. They are so flattering and can be worn with absolutely everything, tucked in or out. Sport them with a basic white button down and a belt for effortless style.
Equipment, my go-to brand for shirts, made their signature sleeveless button down in this perfectly sheer blond and black combo of leopard for the summer. The great thing about Equipment is that their shirts can be worn both casually and dressed up. This one in particular is so neutral - the leopard print is beautiful and adds a little something to those basic shorts, which is one way to wear it. I also love it tucked into jeans or out, with a belt and pulled over for a completely different look, without a belt, with a bandage skirt or tucked into a miniskirt: the possibilities are endless. It also comes in a long-sleeved version, but I prefer the sleeveless myself because you can wear it on those burning hot days or even during fall weather with a basic black leather jacket layered over. It covers all seasons!
