Summer Staples: Denim Shorts

Thursday, 12 February 2015

Shorts// Op Shop

001. These denim shorts are the best thing I've purchased from an op shop in a long time. Originally they were jeans but with a few simple chops... voila' shorts! Super high waisted- check. Perfect fit on my waist- check. Little leather patch on the back- check. Bargain price of only $4 - CHECK! 

002. I know I can kinda sound like a crazy op shopping lady in posts like these because I get excited about a really good bargain, but I just want to help you guys find the coolest and cheapest fashion pieces possible. The DIY for making your own denim cut-offs couldn't be easier. You cut off to your desired length, chuck them in the washing machine to fray a bit, and then sew a line around the edges on the legs to prevent further fraying next time they are washed. Easy peasy. 

003. If you're not into secondhand digs or haven't had any luck finding any gems, I have a few favourite sites that are great to hit up for some summer denim. Although much pricer than my $4 finds, these websites all have a huge variety of colours, cut and size for you to choose from. My ultimate favourite stores to buy denim from are Surfstitch, General Pants, Universal Store, Glue Store and American Apparel

004. Whether you're heading out of summer here in Australia, or getting ready to embrace the warmer weather in Europe, I hope you can find some sweet denim shorts and that this post is maybe a little helpful. Goodluck!
