    7. Dirty denim

    A quick trick for dirtying up your denim is to pour a cup of ground coffee beans in a bucket with water and let your shorts soak in them for 24 hours. Hello, acid wash!

    8. Frayed daze

    Wearing frilly frayed shorts is always stylish. Pear them with anything from wedges to cowgirl boots. Get great fringe by throwing just-cut shorts into the washer/dryer.
