Jean Shorts are always a summer staple and thanks to the popularity of denim, you can get a pair of sturdy jeans at a very affordable price. Jeans are also pretty versatile and you can look good with it in any kind of pairing. The key in transforming your long denim into funky short ones is the length of the material. 

To get that summer suited shorts, all you need is sharp scissors and some good eye when trimming off your jeans. To make jean shorts, always think about the length that you want. Do you want the edges to fray, knee length and a host of other things like are you going for the ripped off and cut out look? 

Just be sure to not cut off too much, because it will be a near impossible task to sew those legs back on. So, before you make the first cut, think and imagine what it will look like first. Then, cut it to your desired length.

If you are planning to get a distress cut-offs look, you can add small chains to the holes you make with a hole puncture. It gives a rugged look.

If you prefer shorts with a more feminine flair, get some lace hems and place them on the edges. You can sew or even use a fabric glue to do so.

If you are up for a wilder pair of shorts, try making leopard print shorts. Print out a leopard print-out, cut the patterns out and use a permanent marker to color the print onto the shorts.



Summer trend 2: Tie dye dress

Stay away from thick fabrics like wool or polyester that will obstruct air flow. Let your skin breathe, but with your plain colored dresses may look dull during the summer. Try tie dying with your maxi dress or dress of any kind. Get some tie dye ink color of your choice, a plain colored dress (white is ideal, but other light colors will work fine as well), a large basin/bucket, rubber gloves, rubber bands and two small wooden blocks. Prepare the color in the basin, let it sit while you prepare the dress for the die.
Google the Itajime technique and accordion-fold it accordingly until you have a square. Keep it tight and sandwich with the wooden blocks, secure it with rubber bands in a grid-like pattern. Rinse or soak the tied dress (wear gloves!), and hold it in the mixture, don't let it sink to the bottom. Take it out when it is fully colored and let it sit for 20 minutes, rinse with clear water until excess dye is washed off. Cut the rubber bands and unfold your new dress.
