How to Wear Denim Shorts: Latest Denim Ideas You Should Try Now

Denim is a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. All of us have worn it, and there is no doubt that we love wearing it. But if you are already past your collegiate days, you are already well aware of the fact that you can no longer pull off wearing denim cutoffs that are as short as your panties.

Despite this, it doesn’t mean that you can no longer wear denim shorts. However, you need to know the ways on how to wear denim shorts and still look like a grown up. Well, you don’t have to worry! We have some style suggestions below:

1.The Modern Retro Look

Yes, you can look both retro and modern at the same time with your denim shorts. The key here is to choose a pair of high waist denim shorts which are all the rage nowadays. The best thing about high waist denim shorts is that they can make you look sexy as it emphasizes your hips and make your waist look a lot slimmer.

The best way to style this denim short is to pair it with a crop top and a pair of chunky heeled colorful platforms.

2.The California Girl Look

Denim is perfect for pulling off an all-American girl look. You know, that casual yet chic, laidback yet eye-catching appeal that most American ladies have. And how would you do this? Wear denim on denim, of course!

For the ultimate California Girl look, we recommend wearing a high waist ombre or bleached denim short and pair it with a denim bustier. If it is too hot out, you can wear a cropped denim jacket over your bustier.

3.The Urban Cowgirl

No, we are not talking about pulling off a look that will land you a role in a Wild, Wild West part 2 (if there will ever be one!). Instead, we are talking about an outfit that is comfortable enough for a road trip and yet still stylish that it can make you look like a sophisticated woman.

The key here is to pair your denim shorts with a loose, carefree and sultry top. And we can’t think of anything more perfect than this than a ruffled off-shoulder top.
