White Denim Shorts • Over 40 Casual Summer Style

White denim Shorts • Over 40 • Fake Fabulous

Today I'm wearing pair of white cut-off denim shorts.
Some may say I'm too old.
Not only shorts but definitely DIY cut-offs... AND especially white ones!
Some may tell me to cover up my decrepit knees.
I say... 
"No thanks!... I'm not dead yet, thank you very much."

I'm 46 and my legs are coming out without apology.
End of.

MAKE THIS LOOK YOURS:

It's easy as pie to make a look as individual as you are.

{Even if we both wore EXACTLY the same items we would look completely different, wouldn't we?}

EASY SWAPS

Shoe swaps:
Not everyone likes (or suits) an espadrille.
Why not try swapping them out for...
  • Open Sandals (heeled or flat, whichever you prefer)
  • Mules or clogs
  • Good old trainers!
Bottom Half swaps can make outfits more wearable:

White Denim Cut offs are not for everyone.
More wearable swaps might include...
  • White Jeans
  • White tailored shorts
  • White Bermuda shorts (on trend)
  • White wide trousers
  • White capris
  • Even a long white skirt would work beautifully!
Top half swaps are easy too:
  • Any layered waistcoat over any vest top or camisole would work (pick a neckline that suits your body)
  • If you don't like the top of your arms adding a sleeved (long or short) shirt over your vest top would look lovely.
Maybe it's too warm for a jacket where you are?
(Lucky you!)
  • Ditch the jacket and add a khaki linen shirt or even a lightweight cotton/linen cardigan.
Every look can be tweaked to suit YOUR body and YOUR personal style.

    1. Thank you Lise.... Yes, crochet. A simple design that worked up in a round from the base. So easy! X

  3. You look fabulous in your shorts! and I love this outfit!, it's stylish, comfy, cool and summery, so it ticks all the boxes!. I do love how you style neutral shades!
    And love particularly the cotton vest, which adds some texture and shape, and your fab espadrilles (summery!). Admiring your great job on making this bag, it looks fantastic!

      Short shorts are still lovely to wear and you have the pins for them. X
