New trends will emerge every season, but fashion staples like denim shorts are forever. Whatever the wash, cut or fit, denim shorts will always be present in your wardrobe. But since they've been around for so long, it can be hard to come up with some fresh outfit ideas—so we've put together some inspiring looks for you!
1. Casual and comfy with a graphic tee
White denim can sometimes be tricky, but this frayed pair is so cute to begin with that you don't need to put in a ton of effort into the rest of the outfit. Pair it with a contrasting tee; we love the phrase on this pick from Mango! To finish off the look, slip on some comfy sandals like these Birkenstocks, and grab a trendy purse.
2. Streetwear chic with an oversized button down
If you follow any of the web's top fashion bloggers, you've probably seen them in an ensemble like this at some point or another! Pairing an oversized button down with some light wash cut-offs will strike up the perfect balance between elegant and edgy. How great would this outfit be for a weekend brunch with the girls?!
3. Polished with a blazer
Though denim is generally a more casual article of clothing, it doesn't have to be paired only with casual tops. For a more sophisticated look that isn't too fancy, pair your favorite boyfriend fit denim shorts with a cute blazer (this blush color is great for spring!). To round out the look, throw on a pair of trendy flats and a simple necklace!
4. Flirty with a crop top and embellished shorts
Who says all denim shorts have to have a zipper and buttons? For an outfit that's great for a music or food festival, opt for an embellished pair of denim shorts like this adorable YesStyle pair and a form-fitting crop top.
5. Simple and cozy with a knit sweater
Breezy spring and summer nights can still be a little chilly, so stay warm with a chunky sweater. Tuck the front of it into a pair of black denim cut-offs, slip into some simple sandals and you've got an outfit!
