Why do We love To Wear Denim Shorts?

They are so popular here in Venice and around the globe. All photography is by me walking the streets of Venice this week, July 2021. Thank God for no more showing off your cheek butts. I found this horrible. It’s all about longer length and larger size or goes up one size shorts for this summer.

The actual denim shorts are just a basic background for you to opt for many different denim styles for this summer.

The key to making them more glamorous is with accessories.

This sees through black top with a black studded belt and sandals gives the overall boho-chic look.
