Now that summer is in full swing, you have likely had plenty of opportunities to wear all your favourite summer clothes.

When it comes to wardrobe staples for the summer, did you know that a pair of classic denim shorts and a denim skirt are both considered to be essential?

Here at fbo, we try to stock the most trendy denim items from some of the most popular international clothing brands. Let’s take a look at all the ways you can style and wear your denim shorts and skirts this season!

Cheeky denim shorts for a sexy yet casual look

Cheeky denim shorts have been very popular the past few summer seasons and it is easy to see why. They are comfortable to wear but also give you an effortless, sexy look.

These shorts can be worn in a variety of ways. If you love street style, we recommend pairing your cheeky denim shorts with a graphic tee and your favourite sneakers. This outfit can be worn to casual parties, when hanging out with friends or relaxing over the weekend.

If you would like to inject a bit of uniqueness and personality into your outfit, why not opt for a pair that features distressed or torn denim?

Although cheeky shorts are mostly worn during the summer, they can also be rocked in a big way when the weather turns cold again. When worn with some stockings, a leather jacket and heels, you are ready to paint the town red with a more sophisticated look!

Mid-length denim shorts give you a versatile option for the warmer months

If you are not a fan of showing off your thighs, mid-length denim shorts are always a great option.

As you know, denim is incredibly versatile and can be worn with practically anything. You could therefore team your denim shorts with any t-shirt in your wardrobe and your most comfortable pair of flip flops and sandals.

A denim mini skirt can be dressed up or down

Summer calls for outdoor parties, fun events and keeping cool as much as possible.

Denim mini-skirts keep you cool and fresh and can either be dressed up or down. When worn with a tailored blouse, pretty accessories and some strappy heels, your denim skirt gives you a smart-casual outfit that is perfect for going out to dinner with friends or attending an outdoor function.

Having a braai with friends or hitting the mall this weekend? Wear your denim mini skirt with a graphic tee, crop top, sneakers or flip flops and you are ready for anything while looking stylish at the same time.


Longer denim skirts are perfect for lazy summer braais and for casual Friday

Longer denim skirts normally skim the knees and can be appropriate to wear to the office on casual Friday when paired with a collared blouse and some elegant accessories, such as a chunky necklace or an understated scarf.

fbo customers love wearing their longer denim skirts to family functions or for any occasion that calls for them to look chic, feminine and casual.

Finally, your denim shorts or skirt should always feel comfortable when you have them on, meaning they should not be too tight or too loose and you should be happy with the amount of flesh that it exposes.
