Few things kick-off the sensation that summer has arrived more than slipping on your first pair of shorts for the season. You’ll be happy to hear that the list of shorts’ styles for 2016 is so long, there’s no possible way you could come up short.

Since distressed denim jeans are trending so hard right now it makes sense that distressed denim shorts are equally popular. These aren’t restricted to you with your pair of scissors and some jeans you’re willing to sacrifice for the cause either. High end designers like Chloe and Alexander Wang showed their own versions of heavily distressed, frayed denim shorts on the spring runways.

Other denim shorts you should add to your must-buy list include high-waisted styles, Bermudas, tailored fits, white jeans, all-in-one rompers, overalls, and embellished styles with either embroidery or patches. If you’re in the mood to go ultra-girly, baby doll style shorts in pastels like lilac, baby blue or pale pink will do the trick. Safari and khaki shorts in shades of mocha and coffee will bring out your adventurous side, n as will board shorts in white and khaki. There are plenty of patterned styles on offer as well, which can be dressed up if you add a linen jacket and some sling-backs. For evening, lightweight leather or satin shorts will help to turn up the heat of your look, but still keep you cool and comfortable.
