How to style denim shorts, effortlessly

Denim shorts are so much of a staple wardrobe piece that I would deem them essential.  Be clear though:  all denim shorts are not created equal, so finding the correct fit, cut, and length are all important in finding the right pair of denim shorts for your body type.  My favorite denim shorts would be high or mid waisted and are typically distressed. The high or mid rise cut of the shorts help to balance out the fact that I like my shorts on the shorter side of things.  And hunny, contrary to popular belief, your girl may not be working with a lot in the butt department, but these thighs are something else! Having distressed denim with a higher cut helps to tone my legs down a bit.

Wear it unapologetically

I love the way denim shorts look paired with a blazer and graphic tee.  The combo looks chic, effortless and pulled together at the same time.  I added my favorite bag of the moment and a pair of patent leather menswear loafers to add an unexpected polishing of my look.  If you want to make this look a little dressier, pair it with heels instead.

Quick style tip: A boyfriend blazer or long blazer (that covers your backside) is a must to keep this look chic and grown up.
