It's time consuming to DIY your own cut-offs and find the perfect denim shorts at a thrift store. Luckily, there are thousands of pre-cut shorts available in a variety of different styles. This summer, forgo the typical super-short shorts for a looser, boyfriend fit. And don't be afraid to explore different washes like black and charcoal instead of standard light wash jeans. You should also look for rips and fraying that will get better with every wash. Click through the gallery to see our top 10 picks.
