Distressed denim shorts have been around for as long as we can remember, for very good reason: They're stylish, classic, and they pair well with literally everything.
Whether you want to dress your shorts up or down, we have the details on how you can style your shorts for class and a night out this summer. Read on to see two easy outfit ideas:
How to Style Distressed Denim Shorts - Outfit for Class:
Rose gold is as trendy as ever this summer, so I incorporated rose gold into quite a few pieces in this look.
For class, you can style your distressed shorts (these ones are from H&M) with a simple graphic tee like this one from Pretty Little Thing. Then add your rose gold accents, like these black and rose gold chain sandals and a simple rose gold crossbody bag. If you want more sparkle, take your pick of the jewelry above: A bracelet, earrings, or a watch would be a great way to incorporate more of the metal into your class outfit.
How to Style Distressed Denim Shorts - Outfit for Going Out:
This outfit is the perfect choice for girls night out or a casual summer date with your boo. Red is the new black and Pretty Little Thing has the cutest red bodysuit to pair with your denim shorts. Lola Shoetique's white chunky heels are every girl's dream, chunky for comfort and cute for style.
Of course, no night out look would be complete without a few extras: Add a red lip and finish the outfit off with some gold accessories from Forever 21 and ASOS.
