Four Versatile Denim Shorts for Summer
Are you still trying to find your perfect denim shorts for summer? You know, the ones that fit you just right in all the right places? The ones that aren’t too short and aren’t too long? In this post, I’m sharing with you my top four picks for denim shorts that are the right mix of versatile and trendy, and won’t break the bank.
Denim shorts are a summer time staple and the right pair can make any outfit look fantastic. The tricky part can be finding a pair that are thick enough but not too thick, that fit your body, and compliment your skin tone. While those listed below are some of my personal favorites, you might have better luck checking out a site like shopstyle.com or polyvore.com that lets you browse many designers and brands at once. You can even input the size and price range you’re looking for to help you from falling in love with something outside your budget!
“Hawks” Shorts from One Teaspoon
These shorts are for the girl looking for something a little edgy, but that can still be worn with a feminine heel. One Teaspoon shorts generally retail for anywhere in between $80 and $130, and are designed in Australia. I recently picked up a pair of these beauties myself and love them! I especially like how each pair is unique and features a slightly different wash and fray.
Cuffed Denim Shorts by Blank
This second pair of shorts is a safe bet for nearly anyone. The classic blue jean wash typically compliments most skin tones and the length is not too short and not too long – they’re not quite “bermuda” shorts but aren’t “short shorts” either. They’d look great with a casual belt and sandals, or with a summer tank and wedges. They might not be the easiest to dress up, so if you’re looking for something slightly more glam – check out the pair below.
High Rise Shorts by Abercrombie & Fitch
These side studded shorts are perfect for the boho-chic girl, glam girl, and any girl in between. This pair features less destruction than the first, and a darker wash than both pairs above – making it a little easier to dress up. Pair with nude heels and a punchy colored blouse for a night out or gladiator sandals and a tank for a day of shopping. The options are endless!
Urban Renewal Boyfriend Denim Shorts by Urban Outfitters
This last pair of denim shorts is sort of a mix of the three before it. It has a whiskered pattern, dark and light wash, minor destruction, and hits lower on the thigh with a cuff. These are the short equivalent of the “boyfriend jean”. These are a comfortable and flattering option for any body type.
