Don’t fret! We’ve got a lot of ideas.

Denim shorts can be traced back to the 1960's when people started to experiment with fashion as a way to to express themselves. But it was in the '70s when denim shorts really became popular because of the American show The Dukes of Hazzard. Daisy Duke, played by Catherine Bach, wore a pair of short tight denims in almost every episode. This coined the popular term, “Daisy Dukes.” 

These shorts have changed a lot throughout the decades and the '90s introduced a longer versionAKA biker shorts! They also came in many different styles: ripped, rolled up, acid-wash and more. Despite how long it's been since these shorts have been on our radar they have stood the test of time because they’re such a versatile piece. With a climate as hot as ours we’re almost certain that every girl has at least one pair. Even celebrities and fashionistas alike love them too!
