When it comes to summer style, we're all about taking it easy!

From casual tank tops and simple tees to flat leather sandals and breezy little dresses, our warm weather wardrobe is fuss-free yet still totally fashionable.

And while everyone's personal style certainly calls for varying must-haves, we have to agree that the one summer piece every girl should absolutely own is a pair of denim cutoff shorts!

That's right, cutoffs exude a laidback nonchalance that perfectly capture the spirit of summer. They're sexy without trying too hard and perfectly undone so you always look intentionally messy and free-spirited.

After all, isn't that what summer's all about?

Cutoffs pair with just about everything: cozy hoodies and knit sweaters to sporty tanks and flowy chiffon blouses. From the beach bonfire to a morning brunch with friends, there's countless occasions this season to sport your favorite shorts. 

They also immediately dress down a look and add a distinctive rebellious vibe that we're really wild about. Want a pair of your own immediately? Grab an old pair of jeans and start cutting! Even the very act of creating cutoffs is a dangerous one.

Countless celebs have strutted down the sidewalks in a signature pair of cutoffs including Nicole Richie, Alessandra Ambrosio,Rosie Huntington-WhiteleyRihanna and many, many more.

And while denim shorts are clearly a classic staple in any gal's closet, the best part is that there's a unique pair for everyone!

From slouchy boyfriend styles to bold patterned options, cutoffs come in a wide variety of styles, colors and cuts these days. A few of our favorite patterns this season include florals, tribal prints and Americana stars and stripes.

For a high-fashion vibe, opt for high-waisted cutoffs, which give off an alluring ‘90s vibe; while colored shorts are playful and fresh for dynamic dressers.

And of course, we can't get enough of the basic denim short: a classic worn-in cutoff that's perfectly frayed, faded and molded to the body.

Check out our round-up of hot celebs in cute cutoff shorts!
