Denim shorts have been a summer staple for as long as we’ve had legs, and with tonnes of variety you can bet your bottom dollar there will be something to suit your style. Yep, there’s everything from high waists and distressed edges to boyfriend fits and ripped pockets and, just to make things that little bit more enjoyable, we’ve compiled a list of the most fashion-forward ways to do them.

The long white button up

Team distressed denim with an oversized shirt for a super chilled out, sporty look. Add some sunnies and trainers for that perfect summer vibe.

Double denim

Channel your inner 90’s girl by pairing high waisted shorts with a matching bralet. Cute patches add a fun twist to this laid-back look.

The blouse

For a more sophisticated daytime look try tucking a pussybow blouse into your cut offs. This is the grown up way to keep cool this summer.

All in black

Stick to black for a classic yet sexy look by pairing your cut offs with a strappy bralet, jacket and knee high boots.
