Today’s denim designs are vast, whether you want a vintage-inspired well-worn look or roll-up Boyfriend style cut-offs, there is so much choice. Embellishment is another massive trend this year, and you will find plenty of adornment on the high street shorts of the moment; look out for the addition of studs, diamante, tassels and lace patches. Denim shorts with added patterns and prints are also all the rage; Aztec, floral and cosmic print designs are still going strong. Coloured denim is also a possibility, black and white are the obvious choice aside from traditional blue denim but pastels will also be popular.
