Who has the right to tell any woman in the soaring heat? They can’t wear denim shorts. These timeless shorts have always been popular around the globe. How are the women in Venice and Amsterdam wearing their denim shorts? Whether you like them or not.
Amsterdam seemed to opt for white cowboy boots as a contrast and aviators, neutral colours is popular here.
This is the casual and what seemed to be worn a few years back. Across the globe, it was a much more travel, sporty look. But the Italians in Venice are switching it up with a soft glamour street style summer vibe.
Why do We love To Wear Denim Shorts?
They are so popular here in Venice and around the globe. All photography is by me walking the streets of Venice this week, July 2021. Thank God for no more showing off your cheek butts. I found this horrible. It’s all about longer length and larger size or goes up one size shorts for this summer.
The actual denim shorts are just a basic background for you to opt for many different denim styles for this summer.
The key to making them more glamorous is with accessories.
Great to see heels, this lady rocks the denim soft glamour look.
Go Up A Size Denim Shorts
This is the new denim short trend. Opting for one or two sizes bigger and teaming it with a luxury belt.
The key is to wear tops that are nicer than a t-shirt. So my crochet top teamed with chunky coral gives the denim shorts a sift glamour look.
This sees through black top with a black studded belt and sandals gives the overall boho-chic look.
Her silver bracelets complete the overall look.
If you have the legs, confidence then opts for a gladiator-inspired boho Nioami Watts style. This Italian lady has amazing tan and legs. She was very confident strutting the streets of Venice. I like how she teamed it with gladiator sandals.
I am turning fifty this month and still wear my denim shorts.
I like how she opts for lace front denim shorts. More casual glamour and over fifty this look fabulous.
Luxury Mini Clutch Bags
Lot’s of women team their denim shorts with a luxury brand to give it an overall luxury message. Loui Vuitton on this occasion.
I like to team my denim shorts with a YVL vintage bag.
The shorts are a respectable length and with tattoos and boho sleeveless top and floating long hair. She rocked the look. I am noticing women are opting for long hair this summer. Accessories can make or break your denim shorts style.
Now I loved this overall look. The long green cardigan gave the denim shorts a more upmarket look. The sequin cardigan, teamed with olive green wedges was perfect. That red leather bag completed her overall look. This effortless look with a respectable length of denim shorts can be rocked by any woman at any age.
Here in Amsterdam, the trend continues on this occasion with very high heels too.
Her partner looked fabulous in yellow. This colour looks great with denim shorts.
Eyewear gives it a summer vibe an upmarket look especially if you are over fifty. Don’t forget your sunglass/eyewear style too.
Team them with Prada eccentric eyewear is a must.
My limited edition Gucci is turning heads for Venice.
I find Uterque does fabulous leather jackets for summer, great for a woman over fifty.
When travelling, I find they are great especially when it’s very warm.
Don’t be afraid to top for different leather belt styles. They can change the image of your denim overall style.
Birkenstock has made a huge comeback, especially during the lockdown. It gives a much more casual look and a message I am strolling on my holiday. For a city like Venice, far too casual for me. Notice the long hair is also part of the accessories, teamed with a cloth over the shoulder bags.
I bought these ways back in 2019. I still turn heads in my oversized, white and bling denim shorts. I like to team it with the Salvatore Feragamo belt.
I like to also team it with a swimwear top. I don’t do that here in Venice. But when taking the Riva boat to Lido beach, I opt for this look.
Lot’s of different messages when you team your denim shorts with a cowgirl style.
Here in Amsterdam cowboy boots are so popular.
I like to wear them with ankle cowboy boots.
I find hats look good with denim shorts. They are all about showcasing your summer style. I wear Stetson hats all the time with my denim bling shorts.
I like to wear them with my leather jacket made in Tuscany.
I am teaming this with silver heels and a leather backpack. Gives it a real edgy, rock-chic vibe.
Regarding your handbag. Opt for a Dior canvas Tote and if unsure wear two luxury handbags like here in Venice.
