As much as I am loving all of the lace shorts, scalloped shorts, silk shorts, yes even culottes (hello 5th grade flashback anyone?) and all the other fancy schmancy short styles around, I must give a shout out to my go to summer uniform, vintage denim shorts . There is nothing better than throwing on a perfectly broken in pair of denim shorts on a weekend morning (or in my case, any morning since they are totally acceptable attire where I work). Levi's 501's are a true classic, but any pair of jeans past their heyday will lend themselves to the perfect pair of shorts, so get out your scissors and get to work!

How amazing do MK and Ashley look in this photo?! (Despite the fact that they are legit fashion icons, I will forever think of a 7- year old Michelle Tanner when I look at them).
If you are not so keen on getting all Edward Scissor hands on your favorite pair of Citizens, here are some styles from some favorite denim brands, the next best thing to making your own since most of the "breaking in" is already done for you. It's like you've had them for years.
Abercrombie & Fitch STACY short, Current Elliott paint splatter boyfriend short, Abercrombie & Fitch RANDI short, J Brand boyfriend denim short
A far cry from the good 'ol classic, but it is hard not to love these colorful bad boys that take it up just a notch.
