Distressed denim is by no means a new trend. It’s around every season in some new shape, style or form. There’s just something about the cool, carefree, sexy look of ripped denim that makes it sort of the anti-classic classic. And few things are as quintessentially summer as cut-off denim shorts.

Personally, I love the mix of casual, cool pieces with more refined pieces. Like how mixing ripped denim with high heels, tailored blazers and flowy blouses adds interest and keeps things from looking, well, lazy.
