Hold On, How Are These 20 Cute Summer Dresses All Under $50?

Trend Alert: Itty-Bitty Jean Shorts

We have been trying to convince you that shorts are an of-the-now option to expose your stems this season. The itty-bitty jean short is actually quite a classic - if you consider the siren who brought the item to fame: Daisy Duke. Now, I would call these Daisy Dukes but these itty-bitties are not necessarily butt cheek flaunters. Young Hollywood has chosen to wear these with tunics or long tees that just graze the hem of the short creating the illusion of wearing a very short dress - but then you have the safety of coverage underneath, albeit itty bitty. Lindsay, Nicole, Mischa, and myself are all fans - are you?

To see a couple of my current faves, (although you could always attempt a DIY project),

Old Navy Women's Denim Lace-Up Shorts, $20.


Paper Denim & Cloth Denim Short Short in Glory Days, $61.

These girls look good with flats, but i wear my shorty-shorts with heels to help elongate the legs (Oy Cameron!)

I like them as long as they don't show the pockets.

They are not for girls with curves. And usually you cannot find ones that don't pinch or gap in the back.

I like the Paper Denim & Cloth ones. But I prefer the DIY kind, it tends to be a better fit if I do it myself.

It depends on your bodytype, it looks bad on some and great on others.

I agree with puddinpie... but I'd guess 3-5%

The ones with the pockets peeking at the bottom are trashy I think!But shorts always seem way shorter on me since I am 6'1" tall!!

These look good on maybe 5-10% of the female population.

only cute if you have the legs either of a volleyball player or that of mischas. otherwise.... people should not wear shorts if they don't have the good legs to fill them.

shorts make me uncomfortable. i think my legs are huge so i'm nervous about them. however, a summer or two ago i bought a pair of denim cut-offs from american eagle outfitters, before it became trendy. i rarely wore them and recently busted them out a few weeks ago.

they look good on LL , Nicole and Mischa but u have to have a body pretty much like theirs to be able to wear them :)

Blech I think it looks so tacky when the pocket hangs out the bottom like that.
