Three Ways to Rock Your Denim Shorts this Spring

If shorts are a staple of warm weather, then denim shorts are the life-line of the season! And although we all love our jean shorts, there are moments when we just need a few new ideas on how to give the denim shorts look a bit of a boost! We stumbled upon a few creative looks we thought we’d share with you all. Please feel free to share your ideas with us on our social media pages @cincigoodwill (Instagram) and www.facebook.com/cincigoodwill (Facebook). Meanwhile, take a look at a few of our favorite spring/summer jean short looks:

Off the shoulder top – If by some chance we get to once again enjoy outside concerts, festivals, or even BBQs, then choosing an off-the-shoulder top to wear with your jean shorts is a fabulous idea. Give your jean shorts a fresh update in an off-the-shoulder top, preferably in a fun floral or pinstriped design.

  Button down – Button downs are so multi-faceted, they can be worn in professional settings, or you can “freak’em” to fit any informal environment. Tie up the front for a big knot in the front, tuck them in with a belt, or tuck in the front and leave the back out to hang. Whatever you decide, have some fun and breathe new life into your denim shorts look this spring/summer. 

 Denim on Denim – A lightweight denim top with matching denim sneakers is from head to toe cute! Get yourself a glue-gun and add a few bedazzled rhinestones to the pockets of your top, shorts, shoes, or all three, and walk into spring shining bright like a diamond!

 Another way to shine bright this spring is to donate your gently used clothing, shoes, handbags, or household items to us. For more than 100 years, Goodwill has been a leader in promoting sustainable forever fashion to support our mission of providing vocational training and job support services to individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment.
