For a little bit of a flare, amp up your denim shorts and cut-offs with some sequins, studs, fringe, and trims (even Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s a fan). We like a little sparkle and shine sometimes, but it’s all too easy to get a pair that’s gaudy–and not in a not-cute way. To save you time, here are nine pairs of embellished shorts for you to wear come summer…or springtime, if you’re so lucky!
1. Joe’s Jeans Sequin Shorts 2. Siwy Camilla Cut-Off Shorts 3. Black Orchid Denim Shorts
4. RUNWAYDREAMZ Studded Short 5. Textile Elizabeth and James Short 6. J Brand Leather Trim Shorts
7. Iro Light Blue Embroidered and Studded Shorts
8. Levi’s Studded Shorts
9. MOTO Sparkle Hotpants

From what we saw while previewing the Blank NYC spring 2012 line, the brand intends to keep it rock’n'roll with destroyed denim (we loved their super-short white shredded cut-offs) and even some whimsical, skull-shaped studs. They showed us a pair of black jeans with destroyed back pockets and ghastly little faces partially lining the contour (the missing studs are intentional and create the look of worn-in-beat-up). The cut-offs were adorned with boho belts, and in a more preppy turn of aesthetics, pastel denim was abound. Two picks we adored were the pastel denim pencil skirts. They also showed classics like basic washes in your standard styles and a covetable denim workshirt.

Amanda Seyfried was spotted on Third Street walking her dog wearing Joe’s Jeans denim shorts. We’re digging the summer-to-fall red cardigan and shoe combo! This is a refreshing coordination of bold color that many choose to steer clear of. Clearly she has the confidence to pull it off, even while taking her pooch for a stroll. Her boyfriend shorts have a bit of fraying at the hem which she cuffed up for an edgy look, all complemented by the studs that are inconspicuously placed around the pockets. Try this look for yourself by wearing a pair of bright colored sandals and coordinating it with a loose knit!
