It is the last week of winter and the countdown is on for endless days spent at the beach.
Spring is just around the corner and I am so excited! The days will be longer and slightly warmer, but not too hot! The fresh blooms will come out from hiding and fill our streets with colour. We will slowly start to put away our winter warmers and get out the spring wardrobe. One of my essential items for spring and summer is a good pair of denim shorts.
Denim shorts are so versatile and can be dressed up or down. They are great for day events and nights at the beach. Finding the perfect pair can be difficult. They have to be the right fit, colour, shape, length and they have to be comfortable. So where to look to find the perfect pair?
Op shopping is the greatest place to look if you want to find a vintage one off pair of denim shorts. I am a bit of a crafty person and love creating things myself. So, I find a pair of jeans at an op shop that fit me well and are the right colour for me. I then take the jeans home and cut them myself. I like doing this because it gives me the freedom to make them whatever length I want and make them look as rugged as I like.
If you aren't a fan of cutting jeans yourself, there are so many cool shorts out there! My favourite brand would have to be Zulu And Zephyr. Their shorts are not to short and not to tight just how I like them! If the price point is too high, try Cotton On, they are simple and comfy.
Good luck on your hunt for the perfect pair of denim shorts for the warmer days to come! Here are some inspo photos to get you started...
