We’ll be honest, we wear denim cut-off’s all year round. With a cute pair of tights and some fresh kicks, you have no excuse to push your jean shorts into a “summer” box and stuff them under your bed. But it’s true that there’s a certain magic that comes with the season of Daisy Duke‘s, and while there are still a few humid, sunny days left in the August-to-September transition, it’s a good idea to get the most out of them. We’ve put together three outfits we adore for some summer denim inspiration. Go forth, and wear denim shorts!

Finally, we Yanks can shop Aussie style via MyCatwalk, a new international e-commerce site based in Australia. The site is so new that some items are not yet in stock, namingly, the Chronicles of Never inventory. However, I can still get Nobody jeans, peruse through their lot of Ksubi jeans, as well as other hot non-Australian denim labels such as Nudie jeans. And you know what, the prices are what you might find in any U.S. site.
In case you may be wondering, MyCatwalk also stocks items from its neighbors, so you can shop Kiwi style — like Karen Walker of New Zealand — as well. Keep an eye out for new designers to be added to MyCatwalk’s online inventory. I’m sure there are tons of up-and-coming Australian denim labels just waiting to be included.
For a limited time, take advantage of free shipping to the U.S. Now that’s Australian for a good deal.
