Olivia Culpo has never had a fashion miss in my book – she always dresses impeccably! And always with a touch of edge! Last month the former Miss Universe 2012 shared an Instagram post before flying out to Vegas wearing one of my favorite airport looks.
The brunette beauty wore a loose-fitting white T-shirt with dark blue cut-off shorts and thigh high boots. The 24-year-old added a gold buckled belt, a Chanel purse and a leather jacket.
The key to this outfit is to make it look effortless – and that’s done by casually tucking the front of the top into the shorts. Olivia’s boots change the look from simple to wow. Just make sure your boots aren’t that high and still comfortable for a flight.
She pulled her locks back into a high bun and finished it off with vintage-inspired sunglasses. It’s the perfect stylish airport look.

Selena Gomez is very versatile with her style – one day she’s rocking a sleek top with skinny jeans and heels and then next she’s sporting a bodysuit with ripped denim. Check out three different Selena Gomez looks that can you try this weekend!
Selena chose to rock an all black ensemble, opting for skinny jeans, a loose sleeveless blouse and strappy heels. The key to this look is the fit of each piece. She chose skintight bottoms, pairing it with a loose blouse with a long hemline. The two balance each other out perfectly. The heels add that understated sex appeal and really pulls the whole look together. This is a really simple look – but if you’re in a rush and you need to look chic but not like you tried to hard – then this is your look.

2. Lace up X Denim
Once again, Selena shows us how versatile she is. The beauty wore a black lace up bodysuit with a denim shirt, oversized blazer and thigh high boots. She made the revealing bodysuit and mini skirt daytime chic by adding a loose fitting jacket and boots that cover practically her entire legs. The result is a ladylike but sexy take on lace ups – once again proving that she’s a trendsetter.

3. Neutral Trench coat X Flared Jeans
This is another great weekend look and perfect for spring. Selena paired flared denim with a pale blue crop top and a suede trench coat. The coat balances the midriff-baring top; she rolled the sleeves which makes it more daytime wearable. The flared bottoms and sunglasses are great ways to incorporate vintage inspired touches to any look. She pulled her brunette locks back into a center parted ponytail and kept her makeup minimal – so that the look is fresh, simple and classic.

A white t-shirt will always be a classic piece in your wardrobe, but sometimes it can get a little boring. Instead, why not mix it up by tying the base of the shirt in a knot and adding a bit of edge to your outfit? It’s simple, and it won’t damage your tee–just put a new twist to your OOTD. It adds a nice unique detail to a look, and shows a little skin without being overly exposed. Check out three ways to wear a tied t-shirt this summer!
1. Tied Up Tee X Graphic Midi Skirt
Iggy Azalea took a simple t-shirt and decided to make a centered knot to show off a little bit of her midriff. She paired her tee with a patterned midi skirt and white pointed heels. The knotted tee gives the overall look a unique touch and breaks up all the white in her look. It’s subtle but extremely flattering.

2. Side Knotted Tee X Black Vest X Jeans
Jennifer Grace, aka @TheNativeFox, shows us how to make the knotted tee look effortless and give off it girl vibes. She paired the knotted tee with a black vest, ripped jeans, strappy heels and a chain link purse. The knotted tee is a great way to break up the dark colors of the outfit–the denim and vest–and pull everything together. The peek of skin takes the tomboyish-like outfit and makes it sexier. The great thing about this look is that you only show the front part of your midriff–the back is still covered by the tee. This is a great way to show skin without feeling uncomfortable in a crop top.

3. Off The Shoulder Knotted Tee X Denim Skirt
Kendall Jenner took a white long sleeved t-shirt and changed it up quite a bit. She not only rolled her sleeves, but she also pulled the shirt to make it one shouldered, and knotted the hem. She paired her shirt with a denim skirt, belt and booties. Tying a knot on the base of your shirt is a nice twist to the classic combo of a white tee and denim bottoms. The off the shoulder top is another great way to make it sexier, as well as the peek of midriff.

Chrissy Teigen has to be one of the most down-to-earth models I’ve ever seen. She’s beautiful, funny and has a great sense of style. One of her wardrobe staples is shorts, and she loves styling them in various ways. They are literally one of the most versatile pieces a girl can own. Check out 10 different ways to style shorts like Chrissy Teigen!
1. Blazer X Hat X Mules
Chrissy wore denim cutoff shorts with a white tee, ivory blazer, nude hat and cream colored mules for a day out. This is a simple look that can also transition into the evening. The ivory color of the blazer pairs perfectly with a simple white tee, and the hat and mules add dimension to the look. This outfit is all about different shades of cream and nude, including the finishing touch of a cream colored handbag. Keep the makeup to a minimum and wear your hair back because this look is all about clean lines and simplicity.

2. Nude Crop Top X White Shorts
The nude crop top compliments the white cutoff shorts, adding a chic touch to this casual look. Although not pictured, she wore simple tan sandals, which keeps the look relaxed. She didn’t wear any jewelry and kept her hair and makeup to a minimum. This is definitely a great low maintenance look that is subtle and still sexy.
3. Thigh Highs X Long Knitted Cardigan
Chrissy transformed the denim cutoff shorts and white tee look to nighttime chic by adding a forest green long knitted cardigan and thigh high tan boots. This is sexy yet still cool girl chic. The structured handbag adds in another shade of tan to the overall simple look. In this look, Chrissy wore shimmery eye shadow, pink lips and wavy hair to glam up the look.
4. Asymmetrical Tank X Lace Shorts
This next look is strictly black and white. She paired her knitted asymmetrical white top with lace shorts, a Givenchy Purse and laser cut heels. This is an edgy look for Chrissy, and she nailed it! The heels add that tough girl vibe while the shorts make it feminine. The overall result is chic with an urban touch.
5. Denim X Denim
Chrissy chooses an all denim look, wearing a chambray top in the same shade as her denim shorts. She pulled her hair back in a messy ponytail and wore smoky eyes to finish off the look. This take on the all denim look is relaxed yet a touch of edge. The chain bag add in another element of edgy glam to the look, perfect for a day or night out.
6. Off-the-Shoulder Top X Thigh Highs
Chrissy wears her tan thigh highs again, this time wearing an off-the-shoulder gray top and denim shorts. She defnielty likes simple outfits that still have that sexy aspect. I personally love the look of thigh highs and denim cutoffs–its edgy, sexy yet casual.
7. Denim X Hat X Gold
Chrissy pulls out her white tee and chambray top again, but this time styling it completely different. She keeps the chambray top open so we can see the white top, and adds in a floppy hat, gold sandals and a tan handbag. This look is definitely more boho than her other all denim look, but it still works! Its casual yet still fun!
8. Sheer Top X Booties X Hat
Chrissy wears a black hat with a sheer blouse, western inspired belt, cutoff shorts and booties. This hippie inspired look is so glam, and the bootie shoes show off a lot of leg. She left several buttons open on her sheer blouse, making it super sexy. The hat and sunnies add a vintage vibe to the overall look.
9. Off-the-Shoulder Knit X Booties
Chrissy decided to wear several different shades of cream with her denim cutoff shorts. She wore a knitted cream off-the-shoulder top with her cutoffs. She added studded details to the look with her booties and purse. The off-the-shoulder knit is a great summer piece because althought it’s light, it can keep you warm during the cool nights.
10. Sheer Top X Floral Kimono X Thigh Highs
Chrissy decided to up the sexy factor with a sheer black top and floral kimono with her shorts. She wore cream colored thigh high boots and her Celine tote. The thigh highs are perfect for this particular look because it covers most of her legs, balancing the sheer top. This look is also very boho inspired and will work well both day and night.

High Waisted Jeans with a crop top is a great go-to look this summer–not only is it stylish, but comfortable too. High Waisted jeans were THE look of the 1990’s, especially when paired with a crop top. In reality, high waisted denim first became popular in the 1940s, and flared high rise jeans an IT item in the 1970s. No matter what decade, high waisted jeans will always be a timeless piece in your closet!
Check out five different crop top and high waisted denim looks that you could be rocking this summer!
1. Wear Stripes With a Sweater Tied Around Your Waist
Selena Gomez put together a casual sporty look for a day out in LA. She chose a striped red and white crop top, pairing it with high waisted boyfriend jeans, white tennis shoes and a sweater around the waist. The crop top is very fitted, but balanced out by the loose style of jeans and the choice of sneakers. I love the sweater around the waist–its very 90’s chic and perfect to wear for those cool nights.
2. Add a Belt and Ankle Boots
Blogger Jazzabelle Rocks wears her high waisted denim with a belt, loose crop top and ankle boots. Each piece is simple but put together it looks so effortlessly cool. She kept the colors to black and the light wash denim–the perfect combo. The ankle boots really grunge up the outfit and the belt detail finishes the look.
3. Pair With Heels and a Fitted Top
Ariana Grande chose dark-wash high waisted jeans and a fitted crop top and black heels. This is a easy look to put together when you’re in a rush and want to look cute. The crop top is super simple but adding the high waisted jeans makes the outfit very chic. The heels give a nice fancy touch to the overall look, which allow the look to be worn both day and night.
4. Choose a White Loose Fitted Long Sleeve Crop Top and Add a Pop of Color
Kylie Jenner wore light wash denim with a loose-fitted white long sleeve crop top blouse and lace up heels. The pink handbag adds a great pop of color to an overall simple look. While hers is a mini Saint Laurent bag, any color or any bag would be perfect for this look, as long as it’s in a bright color.
5. Add a Cropped Sweater With Flared Denim
Emma Roberts decided to wear flared high waisted denim with a mustard colored cropped sweater and leopard print heels. She added a tan belt as well as a gold handbag. This is such a refreshing take on high waisted denim because of the flared bottoms. I love the 1970s inspired denim she chose, as well as pairing it with animal print heels and a fun colored sweater. This look is great for night outs or a date–it’s casual but so effortless stylish too.

A denim jacket is such a timeless piece and will always be stylish. It gives any outfit that laidback vibe and is the ultimate summer time piece. You can add it to a maxi dress, mini dress, skirt, jeans–you name it, it looks good. If you have a denim jacket and need some outfit inspo, check out these 9 ways to style it. And if you don’t have one, I’ve listed a couple of great jackets you could purchase.
1. Mini Dress X Denim
Candice Swanepoel wore a simple black mini dress with a denim jacket and hat and looked amazing! She chose a high neck dress, which balances the whole look. To give it a more effortless vibe, she wore boots to complete the look. She cuffed her sleeves of her jacket, which is a great way to make the look less preppy.
2. White Cropped Top and Jeans X Denim
Kendall Jenner chose a fitted denim jacket to compliment her white cropped top and skinny jeans. This is such a sexy chic daytime look but still so casual. Her Chanel espadrille loafers definitely dress the look down while still keeping it classy. She kept her accessories to a minimum and the result is perfection!
3. Stripes X White X Denim
Kim Kardashian took a business type striped shirt and really made it look sexy! She wore her striped shirt with her denim jacket cuffed, finishing off the outfit with classic white jeans and nude heels. I love the way she kept a couple of buttons of the top open of her collared shirt but kept the sleeves buttoned up. Kim cuffed her jacket which I think is brilliant, because it adds a subtle edgy touch to the overall clean cut look.
4. Maxi Dress X Denim
Miranda Kerr rocked a long black maxi dress with a denim jacket, the perfect look for spring and summer. Add in some sandals and a patterned bag and you’re ready to go. For this look, it’s all about adding in bright accessories! Make sure to roll up the sleeves to keep the look from being too fancy.
5. Black Denim X Blue Denim
Gigi Hadid’s look is such a simple and quick go-to denim jacket look! She’s rocking a white tee and black jeans–pieces almost everyone has in their wardrobe, and topped it with a light wash denim jacket. Gigi chose to complete the look with tennis shoes–the perfect shoes for a day out in the city.
6. Buttoned Up Denim
Sarah Jessica Parker wore her denim jacket completely buttoned, a easy way to make the look edgy. By adding in ripped jeans and boots and a patterned top peeking out of the bottom of her jacket, SJP completed the look. I don’t really see denim jackets buttoned up that often, but I think it’s quite chic!
7. Dark Denim X Light Denim
Selena Gomez decided to mix a light wash denim jacket with dark high waisted jeans, finishing it off with a black high neck top, gladiator lace up heels and a bright red bag. This is such a James Dean inspired look! Draping the denim jacket keeps the look from being to preppy, instead giving her outfit a cool girl vibe. The bright bag compliments the dark top and pants, while the heels make the look sexy!
8. Denim Shirt X Jacket
Beyonce paired a light wash denim jacket with a high waisted denim skirt. She chose a simple white top and nude heels, along with gorgeous Chanel pins and a cream bag. Yes the Chanel is amazingly gorgeous but what I love most is how she paired similar colored denim with a simple white tee. If you want to emulate this look but don’t have Chanel pins (don’t worry I don’t either 🙂 ) add more bling on the arms. I don’t want to make holes in my jacket anyways ( well, I would for Chanel 🙂 ) so putting more jewelry on the arms will still add that ‘wow’ factor.
9. Denim X Mesh
This is probably my favorite look of all. This gorgeous lady is Leomie Anderson, a model and blogger and I absolutely love her style! She paired a light wash loose denim jacket with similar colored ripped denim shorts. To make the look edgy, she wore mesh loose top with a bralet underneath. My favorite part about the look is the all white Adidas sneakers. It’s such a sporty chic look but also really minimalistic, since she keeps things simple by wearing only white and light wash denim.
I purchased my denim jacket from H & M last year and it’s held up perfectly! They actually have a sale on their dark wash denim jacket, and I’m not sure how long it’s going to last. They have a couple of different shades but not all are on sale. Regular price is $29.95. If you prefer a light wash, check out this light wash denim jacket at H & M.
Urban Outifitters has a light wash denim jacket for $129, and can be purchased here.
