The snow’s melting, the sun’s getting warmer and we’re getting festival-giddy over here. In 26 days, we kick off our 2015 festival tour at Coachella (if you’ve never heard of it check this out) and to make sure we’re all properly geared up for those sunny days with friends, laying in the grass, listening to our favourite summer tunes, we’re planning our festival outfits and it starts with the staple: denim shorts!

From our new Girlfriend shorts to the classic Festival styles, we’ve put together a denim shorts guide highlighting our 7 fits so that you’re rocking the summer’s most fashionable trend no matter where you are. The popularity of denim shorts has exploded in the past couple years and we’ve extended our collection so that you’ll find everything you can possibly dream of, and need!

So let’s get down to the basics. Each shorts style works best with different outfits and each style is made to fit your beautiful body in the perfect way.
