Until this year, denim shorts were something that had remained in my very distant style past. I definitely rocked my fair share of denim shorts in my youth. In fact, I do believe I had every color of the rainbow and in high school cuffed denim shorts were my jam. After that however, I walked away from denim shorts and didn't look back. I'm sharing some of my favorite cuts and tips for how to style your denim shorts.

How to Wear Denim Shorts

When the cut offs trend hit strong again a few years back, I mulled over trying that out, but I never quite got around to it. This year, however with several different types of denim shorts being on trend, I decided it's time to revisit my youth and take the denim shorts plunge again.

Which Style to Try

  • First up is the Bermuda. Bermuda shorts are for the girl who doesn't want to show off a ton of skin and us busy mamas who need something comfortable to run around in. I'm loving a nice slim fit pair along with a loose fitting v-neck tee myself.
  • If Bermudas are on the long side for your, but you don't want to go super short, try a pair of mid length boyfriend shorts. They have all the comfort of Bermuda shorts, but show off a bit more leg.
  • Next are white and colored denim. If you're looking for a fresh, crisp look opt for white denim shorts and if you're looking to make more of a statement, go for a bold color like red! A red pair would be perfect for the upcoming Fourth of July weekend.
  • And finally we have cut offs. Channel your inner festival princess and rock a boho worthy pair of cut off denim shorts. This just might be the year I finally tackle the cut offs challenge myself!
