Summer weekends are the official unofficial short-shorts season, and though they’re a definite wardrobe staple, denim cut-offs (or “jorts” as my mis-informed male friends call them) don’t exactly scream originality.
If you’re wondering how to spice up your summer short game, here’s a few alternatives I’m lusting over:
*From left to right / Top: Paige Premium Denim Limeonade Jimmy shorts, Breezer Beachy Quiksilver shorts, River Island studded shorts / Middle: Markus Lupfer striped cotton shorts, Current/Elliott Boyfriend Denim Floral Shorts (15% off), Topshop MOTO Ice Stripe Hotpants / Bottom: Topshop MOTO Crochet Hotpants, Etsy pastel ombre shorts (can you believe they’re DIY?), Madewell Seewall shorts
Don’t see any to your liking in list list? Try Madewell, Topshop and Old Navy for wallet-friendly finds. And if you’re looking to create your own denim cutt-offs, click here for a super simple DIY.
