Cut the shorts, dip them in bleach, and use fabric paint for a pattern!This will probably be my last shorts pin of the summer. I would work with jeans as well though going into fall. You could bleach up to the knees for example.
Lace shorts are so cute! You can wear them with almost any top, and these shorts will make it vintage-y and/or boho chic. Their great for a music fest because you can wear them all day and your legs won't get sticky and sweaty.
