How to Wear Bight Jeans This Summer!
“I wanted to add a little extra color to this patterned top, and these bright green jeans were the perfect way to do it. Colored denim makes any outfit more interesting, and adds a fresh spin on a go-to shirt.”
Stephanie says, "I love wearing colored denim because it allows me to play around with a traditional material. All of the different rainbow colors stand out from the crowd and I love wearing brighter colors when the weather's warmer. It's such a fun spring trend! It's always tricky matching a top with colored denim, but I try to pick something that has all different colors including the color of my jeans. I always make sure the colors I'm pairing together never clash!"
Maria says of the stylish, bright look: “Plain denim is so comfortable and versatile, but it can get boring, which is why I love my bright skinnies.”
Jessi says of her look: "Why not mix up your wardrobe with some bright and colorful denim? I got these turquoise shorts from Brandy Melville in SoHo and paired it with a simple white tank making for a cute, bright and summery look!"

Dressing up a basic is easy. All you need is a few necklaces, a pop of color, or a sheer cover-up. Steal their tricks to update your style this summer.
This summer I'm all about pastel shades and light materials. When accessorizing a summer tee, I like to layer tons of cute necklaces and a hairpiece to make a simple look a little more exciting! This tee is from H&M and the hairpiece is from Forever 21. The necklaces are ones my mom had collected over the years."
“I definitely feel like accessories can either make or break an outfit. With this look, I am wearing hand-made deconstructed denim shorts, a mint collared t-shirt, and a sheer cover-up from Forever 21. I topped off the minty top with a spiked necklace underneath its collar and a bright blue feather earring to add a pop of color. This outfit is flowy, fun, and super-summery!”
There's nothing more comfortable than rocking a worn-in tee in the summer time, and my favorite way to dress it up is really easy: the answer is accessorizing! Over-accessorizing to be exact. For this look, I stacked on my favorite pieces of gold hardware and added bright shorts and lips to dress up something as simple as a cozy shirt.”
“My favorite summer tee is the boring plain white t-shirt. The greatest thing about it is that you can wear one any way you like, with any accessories you choose! I love transforming my white shirt into something that calls for attention. I love chunky bracelets, rings, and necklaces, so during the summer I leave nothing out! As long as you have a good balance, I think the jewelry looks great! Also, as a little kid I used to love dressing up in some of my grandmas "kimonos." Now, kimono-styled cardigans are coming in style and they are an awesome way to spice up a boring t-shirt like this one. When wearing a white tee in the summer, color is essential!”
Diandra"For my summer tee look, I kept my accessories fairly simple. Taking color cues from the top, I opted for bright, red denim, subtle orange sandals, and kept everything else neutral. My biggest tip for accessorizing and styling a summer tee is to embrace color. If you can't decide between a pair of regular blue denim shorts and a pair of bright neon ones — go with the neon! Trends come and they go, playing it safe is never any fun in fashion.
