On my mind lately #9

Continuing with the distressed trend, I haven’t been able to keep my mind off distressed denim shorts.  Like the slouch jeans, I’m really loving the relaxed fit with a little extra cover length wise.  I haven’t own a pair of denim shorts in a long time, and I think the last pair I had was a tight fitting booty shorts… Definitely years ago.

With the temperature rising and my friend Jess’ bachelorette party around the corner, I’ve been on the lookout for a nice pair of denim shorts that is comfortable enough, can embrace the roughness of camping and music festival but still look adorable. Here are my picks!

denim shorts

  1. Treasure&Bond Cuffed Boyfriend Shorts
    The lighter wash is perfect for the summer!  A more noticeable distressed look is perfect for a relaxing weekend getaway, some funky music festivals or just lounging around the house.
  2. DL1961 Karlie Boyfriend Shorts
    A medium wash is not usually something I would go for, but for some reason I really love the old, worn out color of this pair.  I love the contrast between the distressing and the wash of the denim, not too extreme but very noticeable.  The length is also very appropriate for anything ranging from hanging out with friends or brunch with the family.  My only complain is that the distressing look too symmetrical, but nothing a little DYI can’t fix.
  3. Madewell Denim Boyshorts: Rip and Repair Edition
    Another lighter wash shorts with some conservative rips.  Adding a patch underneath the rip so it’s not as revealing, and the boyfriend fit style makes it look more relaxing.
  4. Paige Denim Jimmy Jimmy Cuffed Denim Shorts
    One of the shorter pair of the bunch, I think this pair will be perfect for a beach or lake day where you can go knee deep into the water without worrying getting your shorts wet.
  5. 7 For All Mankind Relaxed Denim Shorts
    A clean, true denim blue is a classic. It will go nicely with any tops and be dressed up or down.  To me, this is a more conservative (some might say boring) choice, but you can never go wrong with classic!
  6. rag & bone Destructed Boyfriend Shorts
    Always go with something black you want something with a little more edge.  Not your traditional denim and certainly not the first color most people would think of when it comes to summer, but sometimes a nice pair of black shorts can really bring some heat to the outfit.
