12 Pairs Of Perfect Denim Shorts For Spring


As with its full length counterpart, the denim short is a style essential because it can broadcast a classic, preppy look  just as effectively as it can compliment an outfit that’s fierce and punk-rock inspired. Arriving in must-have renditions like floral, neon, and tie-dye, you can delve into trend-chasing with the knowledge that they won’t go out of style anytime soon. Even novelty denim has more longevity than other fabrics, so with that in mind, here are 12 selects from our personal wishlist.

Spring Favorite! A.P.C. Madras Pleated Bermuda Short In Denim


Excuse us for thinking ahead, but as soon as the weather turns cold enough to make us forget summer ever graced us with excuses to wear really short shorts and filmy knit tank tops, we tend to daydream via e-retail about how we’ll be dressing when the sun comes out again. This time, it’s the A.P.C. Madras Pleated Bermuda Short In Denim, which provides the perfect balance of lightweight whimsical dressing and soft-tailored statement. It’s 100% cotton and retails at $150.

Nasty Gal Says: Denim & Metallics Are Better Than Ever For Fall 2011


Browsing a recent Nasty Gal lookbook will get you totally revved up for the holiday shopping season, with destroyed denim cut-off shorts, oversized tops, and tons of metallic jewelry. The formula maintains throughout the photo shoot, layering cardigans and outerwear-fit-for-indoors over basic knits and denim. Gold chains and belts are added to the mix, along with killer shoes (try black platforms peppered with studs and spikes), and wild hair. The shimmering burnt-gold cocktail dress is a dream come true—we can’t stop thinking about pairing it with a vintage denim jacket and hitting the dance floor!
