Mother nature fooled us a couple of times with snowstorms after 70-degree sunny days — hey, that’s Denver — but summer is finally here. We waited patiently for these longer sunny days and warm nights outdoors so break out your shorts, maxi-dresses and sandals. June celebrates fathers, Denver PrideFest and the first official day of summer. Our fashion-conscious city has plenty of fun opportunities this month with themed fashion shows, new markets, beauty and jewelry classes and designer trunk shows. Fashion enthusiasts, here are 33 ways to spend June in style.
