Denim Shorts


Once the preserve of teenagers at festivals, the denim short has been reimagined by the stye set of late, and we’re feeling inspired by their decidedly more gown-up spin.

The new look is short and shredded to conspicuously reveal the pockets beneath the denim, or longer (boyfriend style) with chunky turn-ups, which incidentally, keeps your modesty in check, too.

Team with perfectly slouchy tees, linen or denim shirts (just don’t match the color if you're going down the double denim route) and a summer blazer or easy, breezy trench.

Scroll our gallery to track down the perfect pair. This is going to be the most versatile piece you’ll buy all season.
