Pack Light This Spring Break by Wearing This Essential 3 Different Ways

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% from Her Campus.

When you’re packing for Spring Break, sticking to one color scheme or bringing pieces that can easily be layered is a smart way to save room in your bag for a few souvenirs. But if there’s one item that could go with just about anything, it’s jean shorts. Is there really anything more versatile than a pair of daisy dukes? They can be worn with all sorts of looks, and unlike other garments, it’s safe to give them a couple of wears before throwing them into the wash.

And just like denim shorts, ASOS has a ton of cute, affordable pieces that complement any look. See how we’ve styled some of their best Spring Break 2017 clothes and accessories for your upcoming trip – all with a classic blue denim hotpant!

  1. Going to the Beach
    Of course denim shorts are the ultimate beachy keen necessity, and this look is as functional as it is fashionable. With an adorable off-the-shoulder top, wearing this bright strapless suit under your shorts lets you rock a relaxed sun goddess vibe while still having a pop of color.
