Chop it. Rip em up. Distress the mess out of em. The shorter the better. I’m talking about the staple that should be in all of our summer closets. The denim short, sometimes lovingly called jorts. They go with just about anything, come in all different styles and washes, and are the perfect thing to throw on in a rush.
Personally, I have been a lover of the jort for as long as I can remember. Living in a coastal town, they are the go-to beach cover up, seeing as you are going to know pretty much everyone you see, so you can’t look a complete hot mess. They are the perfect, “Hey I know I’m just at the beach, but I’m still effortlessly chic and cute with my jorts, loose t-shirt and oversized sunnies. Thanks for noticing.” Dress them up with heels and a cute chambray shirt to go casual glam and it adds the touch of the unexpected, which you know I love.
Clearly if you don’t have a pair of these yet, you are gonna need to run and grab you some! Urban Outfitters has some of my favorite options. They do the classic mid-rise, or my personal favorite the high waisted “Erin” short. They also have their Urban renewal line, which literally cuts off old denim pants, into shorts. Very authentic. Or you can go to Goodwill and grab a pair of “mom jeans” and DIY your own pair. I’ve tried this DIY and it totes works.
Get to cutting it all off ladies.
