Outfit Post – Hot Options Denim Shorts!

Keen readers of our blog will have noticed a pretty new logo on our site. We are now official Target bloggers! Over the next few months we will be checking out pieces from their various collections, telling you our readers what we think of them, and of course how to style them.

Yesterday we got our first true taste of summer here in Melbourne – 27 degrees and sunny. The weather was too good to miss so we grabbed our gear and headed down to the beach after work. Got to love daylight saving!

I know on this  blog we sometimes get carried away with showing our latest high fashion purchases, but let’s face it – Louboutins have no place on the sand. Truth be told you always need good basics, and these double waistband denim shorts by Hot Options that I picked from Target fit the bill perfectly. I am loving these shorts and can see them getting plenty of wear this summer.

Paired with a simple grey tee that I picked up during the recent Shopbop sale and my trusty black/gold Havaianas, the shorts work great and having now gone on sale they won’t break the bank either!

  1. Hey Elle! What size did you get for the t-shirt? I wanted to get these however not sure which size I should get. Also how is the quality? Given that they’re alexander wang they should be great right? I just hate t-shirts that changes in quality after the first few washes if you know what I mean lol. Thanks for your opinion! It will allow me to spend wisely hehe

    • Hey Jade!! I got an XS for the T-Shirt. This Tee is loose fitted. Normally, I go up a size if I want a more loose fitting tee but you don’t have to with these. Stick with your usual size because it is quite loose already. The quality is ok. The material is not cotton, it is rayon. When I first bought it, I was under the impression that it was cotton so I was a little disappointed. But having worn it I’m actually happy with it. I like how it just falls and drapes nicely when tucked in just so. The cut is also quite nice. The grey color is slightly thicker than the white color. I went a little crazy and bought the Tee in black, grey and white. The white is quite thin but the grey is quite good and not see through. I would give it 4 out of 5. =) I haven’t washed the Tee yet so i don’t know what it would look like after a few washes but I’ve got other tops in the same rayon material and it’s fine after washing but I would definitely hand wash them! Hope this helps! =)

    • Hey Bel! Thank you! Me too! Love the shorts – they fit me quite perfectly! I don’t shop at Target too often because their sizes are slightly big for me but I’m really surprised that these shorts fit me quite perfectly and I’m not paying a bomb for them either! =)
