When you think of denim shorts, does it conjure memories of Daisy Duke? Or is it even worse than that- the dreaded tight fitting, knee length folded up once or twice kind? I think it can be really hard to make denim shorts look cute and yet they are so practical for a comfortable, super casual look for summer. I like them dressed up to go out in (although that usually means throwing on a cool blazer which is not practical for the middle of summer) but I'm always trying to make them look good for just hanging around, running errands, going to the park/picnic, window shopping- you get the picture. There are a lot of options now. The trick is to avoid shorty shorts, anything too distressed, or anything too tight. I like the colored denim option right now since it seems dressier even when frayed. Here are a couple of ideas that are easy to take inspiration from.
