My Summer Fashion Essentials: Who Wears Short Shorts? I DO!
I found these shorts in my Dad's basement as a pair of trouser flare jeans that would have fit had they not been about 3 inches too short. I loved the fly closure, the box-cut pockets and the dark wash; I went with a really simple straight cut to accentuate the vintage style.
I found these shorts on the same day as the first and due to the baggier, high-waisted fit, I knew I couldn't go with the standard cut, so I chose to snip them at a diagnal similar to the One Teaspoon shorts I see on NastyGal.com. I also bleached them in a tie-dye like pattern (see them styled HERE).
These are my go-to standard cutoffs, also a DIY from a vintage pair I found.
If I were to wear any one of my denim cutoffs cuffed up, they could get pretty short...like butt-cheek short, so I bought these cute floral print biker shorts at Urban Outfitters to wear as a layering piece underneath.
Everybody is into the American Apparel disco pants...except for me.
