Steep vs Cheap: electric blue denim shorts

Denim doused in electric blue and packing a jolt of vibrancy into our summer wardrobe; we love these on-trend cut-off shorts.

The perfect excuse for showing off pins – post-bronzing – these denim beauties are an updated alternative to the standard stone wash hotpant.

Sitting on the slightly steep edge, cult Los Angeles-based denim label J Brand strikes all the right fashion chords. In a refreshingly intense shade of bright blue, these denim shorts are a staple wardrobe piece for the festival fanatics among us, and effortlessly work this season’s coveted colour blocking trend.

But if cashing out £185 on these cut-offs comes at too much of a cost, we’ve plucked out an equally electrifying alternative.

Enter Topshop’s Moto electric blue cut-off shorts. With a well-behaved price tag of £26, they promise equal measures of bright blue cool.

We’re pairing ours with a simple T-shirt and relaxed tote for a nonchalant, girl-about-town vibe, or, for a touch of festival fun, team with a billowing chiffon top, flat leather sandals and a fringed cross body bag.

Wear this upbeat shade of denim with dazzling bravado – which will you choose?
