Unique?… Nope.  Must Have?… Yep.

DIY Jorts

Jorts are a serious must have, unless you’re a guy.  Shockingly, denim shorts can be stylish.  When paired with a slouchy tee, scarf, and pointy flats, you have a stylish daytime outfit (hello Starbucks and Target).  Obviously, DIYing jorts is self explanatory… but here’s how I turned the most absurd pair of jeans into wearable denim shorts.

Jeans To Jorts

I was ordering some sneaks from Old Navy a few months ago (they’re cheap and it’s good to switch up running shoes), and I needed to make $50 to get the free shipping.  I just cannot handle paying for shipping, I don’t know why but I will always add items to my cart to qualify for free shipping.  Anyway, I’ve been loving boyfriend jeans so I decided to add a pair that happened to be on sale.  Big mistake.  When the jeans arrived, they were like hardcore mom jeans.  I put them on, laughed hysterically, and marked where I wanted to cut with a sharpie.  If it wasn’t for my painted nails in the photo above, I would totally think this was my grandfather.

Denim Shorts

These freaking jeans were a monstrosity.  I wanted to make cuffed shorts, but that wasn’t working out… they resembled a diaper.  So, I had to cut them shorter.  I still see a little bit of diaper in these jorts, but it’s stylish and subtle (like MAYBE something Alexa Chung would wear).


Although my jorts eventually worked out, I’ve learned my lesson.  I will never ever order anything from Old Navy again… no matter how good the deal is.

Don’t want no Iny weeny teeny weeny shriveled little short jorts man.
