As days are getting sunnier and warmer, my thought turn from comfy boyfriend jeans to comfy shorts. For a while now, I have been noticing slouchy denim shorts but it was not warm enough for me to give the idea serious consideration. Now that it is definitely getting warmer, I started to scout around for summer shorts. Everywhere I looked, the really stylish styles are either too pricey or sold out. Seriously.... Anyhoo, while going through my closet, I found a pair of old Versace jeans that I didn't know what to do with. It was too expensive to just donate but not quite what I like now. Upon further investigation, it has the beautiful slouchy look for a pair of shorts. This pair of jeans didn't look right on me long, but when cut off, it is quite cute as a pair of shorts.
I kept the length slightly longer so I can wear it at different length depending on my needs. I just need to roll the hem up differently. It is so easy to make summer denim shorts out of old jeans. The best thing in life is FREE! If you are going to DIY your own cut off shorts, first determine the length that fits your daily needs. Second, before you go scissors happy, mark the length on both legs to ensure evenness. I kept mine longer at 8 inch inseam but will change the length depending on how I roll up the hem. I am scouring my closet to try to find a pair of blue denim that I can cut if not, I think I like the ones I picked out on the bottom image.
